Shuffling off too…the subways of Tokyo. Updated

Yep, without leaving my 5 acres in central Minnesota!

I am making a block for the “Bees helping Bees” Flickr.com group.

She is missing 3 blocks, I am making Block #12.

This is a simple idea, lots of little squares, but I really like it. I hope to be able to make the whole thing some day.

So, I’ve got my little squares and I’m gonna shuffle off to sew some subway tunnels…

Tokyo Subway Block #12 LayoutMade with 2″ squares will make a 12 1/2″ unfinished block.

The whole process is amazing when it is all put together. You can see the whole thing and get the directions/pattern at Oh, Fransson!”

She has some other quilt patterns on there that I am putting higher up on the list than this one…like the picnic quilt that rolls up. Awesome idea…I am going to try to make that one this summer for fall picnics.

Update: Well I finished this block – twice.

My first one was completed when I was pressing it for the last time, I got 3 stains on it form my iron or ironing board. So I started over. This one turned out much better – no stains.

I would love to do this whole quilt some day.  I love that it’s dimensional and represents something at the same time.
