I originally fell in love with this mini quilt that Elizabeth created. My intention was to create a larger quilt based on the Boston subway system but she beat me to it! And I figured if you can’t beat them then join them 🙂
We are three blocks in and I have to say these little squares are addictive.
I don’t have a very large stash and I had to buy 9-10 new prints in order to have enough variety but I still like it. The blocks are 8 two inch blocks by 8 two inch blocks so if you have at least 8 different prints in each colorway you can get a nice variety.
I cut all of my squares first and quickly learned that my stash relies heavily on light blue and bright pink and is almost completely lacking dark green, dark blue and yellow. So I used this as an opportunity to try and round out my stash a bit more, I love color spectrum quilts so I know they will be put to use.
The quilt along is moving pretty quickly, we got two blocks Wednesday and are supposed to get another two blocks today but I prefer it that way. It’s so much fun that I can’t wait to see the whole quilt together.
I’ve already started planning the back, I think I’m going to try and do some sort of city scape but we’ll see.
