Okay – the anniversary was last year. But still I would like to offer my congratulations to one of the most famous buildings in the world: Grand Central Terminal, which celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2013.
What do quilters do to celebrate? Exactely – they create quilts. And the anniversary of Grand Central Terminal was no exception. City Quilter – a quiltshop in the middle of Manhattan – designed four fabrics to celebrate this anniversary. Together with American Patchwork & Quilting the shop organised a competition to make commemorative quilts that used these Grand Central fabrics.
30 of these quilts are now on exhibition in the New York Transit Museum’s Gallery in Grand Central Terminal. But you have to hurry if you want to see them – the show closes on July 6. So if you are in or around New York City this weekend stop by the Grand Central Terminal and have a look at those wonderful works of art. Show hours are 8 am to 8 pm on Friday and 10 am to 6 pm on Saturday and Sunday.
