It's been a blast!!!
I've completed 2/5 of the quilt top.
To get an idea of how this is built:
1600 total squares
Square sizes are 2.5" x 2.5'
The squares are sewn together to complete blocks
Blocks are 64 squares total. 8 x 8
The blocks will be sewn together
Quilt is 5 x 5 blocks
Here is an example of a block layout before sewn:
Here is the block sewn together (and placed below the above block to show how the blocks fit together.
Here is a kinda closeup of the top row (5 blocks)
Aaaaannnnddddd....Here is an overhead view of the top row (5 blocks).
This photo is how I discovered a completely messed up block. The black squares represent "stops" on the subway. But this block has a black stop sitting way off in it's own little spot with no train coming near it. OOPS.
Luckily, I'm a master at using the seam ripper and I managed to take it apart and fix it. :) I've been much more careful about putting my blocks together.
Soooooo a recap
I have completed a total of 11 blocks out of 25. Top two rows of the Tokyo Subway Map Quilt top are complete.
I'm taking suggestions. I am trying to decide about the back. I think I want a red fabric. Who has a better idea on the back?
