New York Placemats

I went to New York and when I was there I bought some fabric from The City Quilter. They have their own range of New York fabrics including some produced for the Centenary of Grand Central Terminal which is this year. In fact there is currently a quilt show there showing the best of the quilts made for the occasion. I wish I could go and see them. Instead I must be happy being reminded of my trip when we use the placemats ( every meal).

And I have made them reversible with text and graphic prints for backings – also from The City Quilter. I would add the link but I am having difficulty doing this with my iPad. I left my laptop behind when I went away a couple of weeks ago and am struggling without it.

Quilt for Olivia

Another child’s quilt in simple squares with a scrappy binding. I am still having trouble with blogging. I am trying to blog from my ipad and iphone as my recent photos are on them. Seemed a good idea but when I look at the blog they appear quite different on the different devices. Not all the posts were appearing. But I am determined to make it all work!
