    Last year my best friend went to New York City with her sister. She was telling me how amazed she was by all the taxi cabs on the streets. When I spotted this taxi cab fabric at a quilt show earlier this year I knew I HAD to make her a quilt. I even found stop light buttons to put in the "intersection".

    I had the same impression. I really like the fabric and your quilt. Bet it will bring back fond memories for her.

    Awesome. She will love it. The buttons in the center are a great idea. Looks like a traffic light.

    I like your quilt. It's thoughtful of you to do that for your friend.


    I like your avatar too...looks complex. Was it difficult?

    That's soooo sooooo cute! She will love it. It'll bring fond memories. It is definitely a site to behold, especially Times Square. It's especially nice flying in and out of NYC at night and seeing all the lights!!! 8) 8) 8)

    Congratulations, SulaBug on your 3000th post!!! :wink: :wink:

    Thank you Ranger and everyone for your kind words.

    The block in my avatar wasn't difficult at all. It was paper pieced which I'm learning is lots of fun and an easy way to make sharp, crisp points. This was the center block from a table runner pattern bought at a LQS.
