City Quilter

Yesterday I visited Manhattan's only quilt shop. Wow! Not a calico or
Civil War repro in sight. The very friendly clerk told me they saw
their fabric choices as an antidote to the grey city streets. It's an
awesome shop. Tomorrow I hope to see the Paula Nadelstern exhibit at
the American Folk Art Museum. (sorry I can't make a link when posting
from my phone).

I feel sad for all the Manhattanites--only ONE quilt store for all of those millions of people??!! Glad you got to visit. I'm jealous about the Folk Art museum.

I like that idea! No dreary Civil war repros! No boring darks. Just bright & breezy! perfect.

I'm so envious you're in New York! Have a ball, it's such a great city.
