www.cityquilter.com, most of the New York prints are theirs exclusively. The fabric arrived shortly after I came home from my trip. I made both quilts in a generous lap size in the yellow brick road pattern from Terri Atkinson at www.atkinsondesigns.com. Look closely and you'll find subway maps, famous NYC landmarks including the Brooklyn Bridge and the Statue of Liberty, yummy bagels of all flavors and of course, the ubiquitous New York City taxi!
Unfortunately I didn't have time to finish both quilts in three weeks, but I brought both tops to show the intended recipients and my Mom and my Uncle were very excited. Next, I need to mail them off to the machine quilter so I can get them quilted!
I did get to visit City Quilter in person on my trip. They even have an adjacent quilt gallery with rotating exhibits. Mike went in for a few minutes then headed off happily to the camera store. City Quilter was celebrating "Bernina Day" and having customer raffles and I won a small Minkee blanket kit. I bought a pattern for a rag rug because I knew that I would have to carry everything home. I also bought a quilting magazine because I knew we were going to the classical guitar store next and I wanted Mike to have all the time that he wanted. He is always very patient when I go to the quilt store.
My sister-in-law, Diane, also loved the quilts, so there may end up being a third one in the series!
Pugs and kisses,
