Miss Main Street grabbed the husband chair and used the time to check her Twitter feed. I looked around. The store has lots of NYC-themed fabric (most of it of their own design), plus a selection of just about everything else in quilting fabric. The quilts below were displayed in the batitks and Asian section.
The quilt hanging below was made from batik fabric and used a pleating technique from the book Modern Neutrals.
Even though the shop is relatively small, the selection is quite good and I managed to find a few things I had to have. Two yards of a neutral that looked like a good background fabric and this charm pack of aobut 100 different solid colors, from the Michael Miller Cotton Couture line. I'm not sure what I will do with it but could not resist.
Then I saw a sample on display, a wallet made using a special metal frame. I bought the pattern and the frame. I'm thinking of adapting the pattern to make something that will hold hand sewing supplies.
Leaving City Quilter, we went to a flea market. We didn't see anything worth buying but did catch a few people dressed in ways that could be called performance art. We then made our way to Chelsea Market. This place is worth a visit if you are in the area. Besides the eateries and food vendors, there are some artisans selling their wares as well as an Anthropologie store.
We capped the day with tea at Bosie Tea Parlor in the West Village. Great tea (many varieties on the menu), with small sandwiches, scones, macarons (salted caramel is their most popular flavor), and pastries. A good place to rest your feet and have a chat.
I'll miss my girl but she is so ready, and so excited, for college.
