That Red and White exhibit (Infinite Variety) from the American Folk Art Museum last year really got people thinking about this two-color combination. Both the shops I hang out in have been doing something red and white. Above, Prairie Point in Shawnee, Kansas, had a show of contemporary red and white quilts in February.
