It may be the last day of New York Fashion Week, but my schedule includes work, lunch, shopping and a show. No runways for me! With the weather and wind VERY brisk, I’ve actually taken the Metro. Normally, walking is an integral aspect of the Manhattan experience. How else can you get a feel of the city?

I don’t need quilting fabric, but a visit to City Quilter finally happened. For one who has seen MANY quilt shops, let me just say that this quilt shop curates a very fun selection of cottons. Once my eyes caught this fabric, the wave of “MUST HAVE” rolled over me.Alanna Nelson quilts surfing cats

Surfing cats from Riley Blake Designs. This will be a fun baby quilt back. It seemed only natural to grab a selection of Cherrywood gradations to match the colors.

What a great way to warm up a cold winter day!
