Quilting Information:  November 5, 2014

The Ruby Jubilee Exhibit, Houston


This is the International Quilt Festival’s 40th anniversary, so one is greeted with a huge central display called “Ruby Jubilee” made of red and white quilts of all sizes.  (Rubies = 40 years.)  Some hang in tiers from the center in a large, very well-lit circle that made the quilts glow.

Here’s a close-up–and somehow I did not get the maker’s name and cannot make an association from the show booklet.


Within the Ruby Jubilee exhibit are separate exhibits.  Here’s “Rouge et Blanc” by Marie Baraer from the Quilts de Legende exhibit:


And, a close-up.  The quilt was hand quilted.


There were some spectacular miniature red and white quilts and, of course, red work.

Here are other angles:
