    My sister's friend is retiring next month. Over the years they shared trips to NYC and Ice Skater shows. So she asked me to make her a quilt and this is what I came up with.

    This is beautiful. So nice the way you were able to commemorate their shared fun. Is the NY fabric from a collection?

    Your fabric choices are fabulous. The paned windows look as though light is coming through them. You are also a very nice sister - - hope your sister appreciates your hard work for her friend.
