Hello, hello and welcome to week 3 (14.-20.9.2015) of Tokyo Subway Map QAL! This week is all about light and dark blues as well as violets, purples, you name it. Throw in teal and plum, too, if you like :)
How is your stash looking, by the way? I’ve had a discussion with a lovely lady, who mentioned being a bit short on certain hues, but on the other hand having quite a few browns and tans, and while the original pattern calls for rainbow and greyscale colours, why not make it your own, if your preference is different? There’s absolutely no need to feel like you have to sew a replica of the original, if you think you would enjoy other colours more.
As for my solids, as part of a birthday gift, I purchased a modest bundle of Kona cottons to be used in this project (my stash of solids is measly still), and it finally arrived last week along with the fabrics for Farmer’s Wife 1930s QAL – which as a matter of fact has launched today!
But first, the prompt for this week.
Cutting the lines of week 3:
- Light blue
- Dark blue
And now my Tokyo solids, I think I’m in love with Kona…
Since the selection as mentioned isn’t huge, I’ve decided to use the same fabric for all solid patches. I tried to pick hues that would be sort of averages compared to the prints I have, but in the end it really doesn’t matter that much, I suppose.
What’s your decision on them? Have a large stash of solids yet? And how is the cutting going?
