Grand Central Terminal Centennial Quilt Exhibit

Wednesday, July 2, 2014

My good friend Marie & I finally made it in to see the Grand Central Centennial Quilts exhibit.  These are just a few of the quilts on display.  They were my favorite of the exhibit.

Grand Prize
Time Flies But We Take the Train
Amy Krasnansky, Baltimore, MD

First Prize
Grand Central Terminal Mandala
Ligaya Siachongco, Woodside, NY

Honorable Mention
As Time Goes By
Gretchen Crozier, Fremont, CA

We had a lovely day in the city.  We visited two of our favorite quilt stores.  At The City Quilter I picked up some nice fat quarters and fabric for a signature quilt.  Unfortunately, they were working on a new installation at the Art Quilt Gallery, so were weren't able to go in.  At Purl Soho I picked up fabric for an improvisation piecing quilt.
