On Saturday I went to NYC for my Empire Quilters Guild meeting. While riding the train I decided to take some photos to share with you. There are always many interesting things to see along the way.
There are 6 individual posts for today. Please don't ask me to explain why:)
At Grand Central there was an exhibit featuring Italian design. This amazing gown was made for Queen Elizabeth by Italian designer Katia Ricciarelli.
In this close-up you can see huge pearls in the skirt. There is an excellent book that shows how to gather fabric into patterns like this (and much more), called "The Art of Manipulating Fabric" by Colette Wolf.
Stepping outside of Grand Central onto 42nd Street the city looked so pretty in the morning light.
