A Tale of Two Quilt Projects

Two projectsTwo weeks ago, I have a pile of scrappy tulip blocks and a set of ziplock bags containing a little over 700 colored squares.

Today, I made the last block of the Tokyo Subway Map quilt and completed putting together the quilt top.

Here's how those two projects look now.

The smaller quilt is approximately 60 inches square. I still haven't decided if I will add borders.

The larger quilt is 100 inches square ... which is why I took it outside for it's photograph.

2 Projects

Both are made from pretty much the same set of scraps.

In the original Tokyo Subway Map QAL, there is some appliquĂ© and more small squares on the back. I like the design–you can see a photo of someone else's quilt in the original Flickr group here–but I am not sure I'm up to cutting another 100 or so of those squares ... maybe I will combine that task with yet another scrappy work-in-progress ... and then the real adventure can begin (quilting that monster).

I'm sharing these projects with these lists:

wow -- I can't believe how fast you put that subway together! It looks great. I like the cross-hatch quilting in the photo you linked to, although it seems like a lot of work on a 100" quilt...

I love them both but am really drawn to the flowers. You are really good and fast.

Maybe there's a fabric out there with printed squares. =) I saw jelly roll printed strips on fabric today - makes it easy to do bargello, that's for sure!

Your Tokyo subway map quilt is just too cool! You really moved on finishing the top. The other quilt made from the same scraps is very lovely, too.
