So this is what I have decided to do with my charms that I got from the Color Wheel Charm Swap at From the Blue Chair. I know all of you are probably already following her, but if you have not been to her blog get on over there! She just finished an amazing quilt top with her charms and it's really beautiful. She is hosting a Monster Charm Swap starting March 1st and I would love to get in on that one! So I have decided to do the Tokyo Subway Quilt from Oh Fransson! by Elizabeth Hartman. I love her blog and her book is awesome. I'm really excited because she is going to be at QUILTCON doing some workshops. Her next book comes out this year and I can't wait!
I have been in love with this quilt since I started reading blogs. I had originally decided that I would cut all the pieces out and then start working on the quilt. I am doing so many things and have my hand in so many projects, that I decided to do one block at a time.
I got all the pieces cut (2X2") and laid them all out.
Then stacked each row from left to right.
I'm a tad irritated that I didn't take a picture right after getting them all sewn together. I decided I wanted them to lay a little flatter and sprayed starch and then pressed again. I had a little wrinkling thing going on after that :( You only really learn by your mistakes anyways, right? So here is block #1. I'm sure by the time I get to to block # 26 I will be a pro at it.

I hope you are all having a wonderful day!!
