Still hanging out in NYC

The fabric has me hooked and I have been messing around with using up more of the New York fabric  I showed you in the last post.  It is being made into a mini-quilt or wall hanging and I thought I would be done by now.

Way back I used to quilt all the time by hand.  Now quilting has been transformed for the machine age and I still can't get it done by a deadline.
 This great little magnetic guide is really helping me maintain the 1/4" seam.
The quilt is using the old 9 patch block and each one is totally random because I am too anxious to get down to sewing and lack the patience for meticulous planning or following directions!
                              Each block will be machine quilted with different patterns
 All the others are done with straight lines EXCEPT this one. It is my homage to the Guggenheim.
Here you can see the stitching from the wrong side.  I just used fusible batting and they will be attached later and quilted to a backing along the sashing lines.

To be continued...
