subway tile quilt


Remember my previous contemplation of a Christmas quilt project? While I may have been quiet about the project here on the blog, it has been something I've been thinking about a lot the past few months since that post. My search for the perfect pattern took me a lot longer than I anticipated. I kept finding myself drawn to adorable scrappy star patterns ... but when I took a long, hard look at the fabrics I wanted to feature, I realized I wouldn't be happy chopping these prints up into tiny pieces. They are just too large of prints for complicated, scrappy patterns (at least for me!). So once I embraced that this quilt would be more simple than scrappy, things started flowing again. It wasn't until I had layed out my fabric on the floor in the above photo that it hit me--a subway tile pattern!


Here's my progress on the top so far. Large subway tile-esque panels, separated by strips of hot pink. It's a very pink and lime green Christmas quilt--perfect for a little girl! I'm not stressing about getting it done in time for Christmas eve this year .... I could surprise myself and have a big spurt of quilting energy this weekend and finish it ... or not! We'll see!

  3. I'm into this type of designs cuz they can verily give contrast to rooms or to any designs imo.
