Hello all, Mary Ellen here.
A Ruby Jubilee is a 40th anniversary of an event. This fall marks the 40th anniversary of the International Quilt festival in Houston. The exhibit of red and white quilts, inspired by the red and white exhibit that was in NYC a few years ago, is spectacular. I’m sure there will be more and more about that on all the social media etc before too long. Have a look at this newsletter from Quilts, Inc. to read about the birth of the quilt festival, pick up a free pattern, and some great recipes. Perhaps you’ll be inspired to do some of your own internet surfing to find more about those “ruby” quilts. click here

I have been following the few photos already published about the set-up of these quilts. I only wish I could see the entire exhibit in person. IMHO, there’s nothing more stunning that a red and white quilt; I can’t even imagine an entire exhibit of nothing but!
Wouldn’t it be great if there were a traveling exhibit of red and white quilts that we could host at our museum, or go to visit at a nearby location?
I Wish I could be there
