I have always loved looking at Manhattan while driving over the Whitestone Bridge. This quilt is my abstract interpretation of this view of the New York City skyline and its reflection in the East River. The piece accurately demonstrates the general heights of the neighborhoods from the south to the north and highlights One World Trade Center as the tallest point. This quilt is constructed out of 3/4″ strips of fabric (1/4″ after pieced).
