I Love NEW YORK !

No matter how many times I visit New York, I can never get enough of this vibrant city.
A couple of years ago I returned to New York and visited The City Quilter for the first time.

One of the things I purchased there was a kit for a wall hanging. In the past few days I've been putting it together.



It's machine appliqued and I used a straight stitch around each shape.



This section of the quilt is suppose to be the the Guggenheim in New York  .




Other well recognised landmarks such as the Statue of Liberty, the Chrystler building, the Empire State building and the Citicorp buiding are all in the quilt.


And this is what the quilt looks like.
I would have preferred to photograph it outside but the weather is not the best today.


I used for the backing the 'New York Taxi Cabs' fabric.


I'll be enjoying looking at it for a long time and dreaming about my next visit to New York !

That's my first concrete goal done for 2012..
Next I'm going to play again with my scraps doing a little project before tackling the next goal.
