    Saw the pattern and fell in love. Strange that as I typically don't like "scappy" nor am I a big fan of traditional blocks. But the 2000+ pieces sang to me. I selected 24 bright colors and 3 different white on white fabrics.

    Finally done with stage 1 - 110 double nine patch. The 9 patch are made with 1" strips. Whew!! I started this over Thanksgiving weekend. I know a lot of you would have finished this task a long time ago, but I'm A) slow and B) don't quilt very often (usually just on weekends).

    Pictured are a few of the blocks and the tray that I was working from to select the bits. The additional color/white/color strips will be used in the next stage - Shoo Fly blocks (110 of those). The white/color/white strips ... scrap :(

    It's going to be beautiful. I'd love those same colors for Elizabeth Hartman's Tokyo Subway quilt

    I applaud your skill working with these small strips. I know the smaller the strip, the more accurate you must be!!

    I love that quilt! Funny, I didn't read all of what you wrote, just clicked on the link, and the first thing I thought of was "London Tube Map!!" I love the London Tube. Mind the Gap!!

    Looks great! How are you finding working with the small pieces? I just got the pattern, and will be doing it with black instead of white. I have a quilt to quilt, and a top to finish and quilt before I can move on to this one.

    OMG ... I completely forgot to mention. I had help on this from YOU GUYS. Was reading threads about the benefits of starch. I had never used starch in quilting before. Started it mid-way through the DNP's and wow - helped me keep the blocks straight and flat, and the stiffness of the pieces helped me feed them! Thanks all!!
