Hello lovelies, how are you doing? Welcome to week 9 (26.10.-1.11.2015) of Tokyo Subway Map QAL! We are having a beautiful day here today in Helsinki, and with all that sunshine I send you the newest prompt for our beautiful quilt.
Instead of taking photos earlier in the day, I decided to head out for a run, and the one above will be replaced soon enough (yep, I also need to do something about my pressing-board fabric, it’s looking rather nasty these days). We turned our clocks to winter time yesterday, which means the sun just went down a few minutes ago, and it isn’t even 17.00 yet. Yay, darkness… I don’t mind, but photos are a ghastly task to take during the winter months, in particular when you don’t have but a point-and-shoot at your disposal.
As you may have noticed, I’ve been rather quiet on Instagram lately, which was due to illness and then a burst of migraine lasting several days. The other day, however, I finally was able to check out the hashtag #TokyoSubwayMapQuilt once again and saw some really nice photos. It made me so happy to see how we are working on this quilt, basically spanning the whole globe.
Sewing the week 9 blocks:
- Block 3
- Block 4
- Block 5
Perhaps you noticed how I switched around weeks 8 and 9? I decided to do that after having read some comments about not having cut everything needed yet, but next week, there will be only two blocks to sew. The average is 2-3 blocks each week, if you want to finish the quilt top by New Year’s, whereas if you aim to have the whole quilt finished then, speed up a bit and sew 3 blocks weekly.
Nevy mentioned being sick of cutting for the background and I don’t blame her :) It would have been so convenient to use at least skinny strips (skinny jelly roll), but we can’t have it all, can we, heh.
Hope your week 9 will be successful!
