I made this quilt for FP, the son of my friends HP and KP when they were coming to stay with us and to commemorate his first ever trip to New York. FP's only five and I wanted to make the quilt a bit more boy friendly so I adapted the design and widened the taxi cab borders so that the cars are clearly visible. So glad I did because the quilt was on FP's bed waiting for him to arrive and when he did I heard him shout 'taxis'.
My friend HP, FP's mum, tells me the quilt is a big hit and has pride of place on a chair in their living room back in England - you can't ask for better than that :) (thanks for the photos HP x)
