The Afternoon

After a great boat ride, I decided to do something indoors. What a better way than to spend the afternoon at a quilt shop? So I headed for The City Quilter.

On my way there I decided to duck into a hole in the wall for lunch. The Dominican equivalent to really, really good fast food.

Pork shoulder, black beans and rice
About the quilt shop, a quilting haven in New York City, they specializes in fabric for the urban quilter and sewer — sophisticated, contemporary, exotic — including an extensive collection of batiks and hand-dyed fabric

The also have the only art quilt gallery in the city. As it turned out the Velda Newman’s SCALE + COLOR + VISION exhibition was there. All I can say is TERRIFIC! Zinnia was so large that I couldn't get it into the frame of my camera!
