Quilts at Grand Central Station.

I found out that there was a quilt exhibition at Grand Central Station.

Of course I decided to take a look. I've never been to Grand Central station before so it was a surprise when I finally got there and was able to walk the arcades. It is really beautiful. Long Marble corridors and chandeliers.

This is the description.

"The New York Transit Museum’s newest exhibition will honor Grand Central Terminal’s grandeur not in marble, but in textiles. Last year, The City Quilter, a Manhattan-based fabric store, partnered with American Patchwork & Quilting for a national quilt-making contest of landmark proportions. Thirty finalists from that competition will be displayed at the New York Transit Museum Gallery Annex and Store at Grand Central Terminal from March 15 to July 6 in the vibrant new exhibition, Grand Central Centennial Quilts."

I thought I had captured the names of all the makers but some of the photos disappeared. Sorry.
