Tokyo Subway Quilt

Is there a project you absolutely love, but have been working on it for so long that you begin to dread even the thought of it? This is the love/hate relationship that I have right now with my Tokyo Subway Quilt. Lately I have been feeling a bit overwhelmed by all my WIPS. This year (which is a running theme with a lot of bloggers) I plan on finishing them before I jump into anything else. This is torture because I have so many projects I want to start and there are so many awesome QAL right now. Getting back to the point - see I'm still avoiding it :) I think this is why it has taken me so long to get where I am with this quilt. I fell in love with Elizabeth Hartman's Tokyo Subway Quilt instantly. It's beautiful and so unique and once you get into a groove you can knock them out. I finally got all the blocks done and just started piecing the blocks together today. I have jump started my heart for this quilt again and now I'm ready to getter done :) So here's to all of you who are on the same journey to finish it in 2013!


Hope your having a wonderful day!!

  1. I love this too and was so tempted to do it. I'm not even sure why I didn't. But I hope you can keep at it in 2013. It's going to be awesome!

  4. This quilt turned out SO beautifully! I totally get what you mean about the torture of deciding to finish all those WIPS first LOL! QALs are so tempting, especially when you are bombarded by gorgeous pics!!
