"[Red and White Quilts] includes not only photographs of each of the 653 quilts in the exhibit grouped by theme, but also contains essays by key players in the development and design of the show itself, making what was already visually inspiring that much more impressive an accomplishment for how logistical challenges were met with creativity and innovation.
"Whether you missed the exhibition or adored it, this tome [Red and White Quilts: Infinite Variety] offers a compelling testament to the power of pattern."
Every quilt jumps off its glossy page in Red and White Quilts: Infinite Variety. Half a dozen full-color, you-are-there photographs set the scene, bringing the reader right onto the floor of the armory along with people gaping, pointing, snapping photos on their smartphones, swarming the museum shop for souvenirs.
