A Quilt Exhibit…In Grand Central Station?

Grand Prize Winner – ” Time Flies, But We Take the Train” by Amy Krasnansky, Baltimore

Even if you’ve never been to New York City, you’ve surely witnessed the grandeur of Grand Central Station in movies!  Imagine it as a setting for a quilt exhibit, namely, Grand Central Centennial Quilts, on view from March 15 through July 6, 2014.  It’s a fiber art celebration of the famous terminal’s first 100 years.

The exhibition shows off the works of thirty finalists of a competition sponsored by American Patchwork and Quilting and the City Quilter, a New York City quilt shop.  Participants were challenged to include fabrics designed by City Quilter and inspired by iconic Grand Central architecture, colors and textures.  Full exhibit details.
