An idea that I hope works

I had some time this morning, after a run with some awesome girls and a bit of boot camp to get my rear in shape for summer, to figure out how I want the quilt top.

Inspired by the Tokyo Subway Quilt by Oh Fransson! I like the colors staying together but still mixing it up a little.  This quilt top is much larger than I had originally thought it was going to be and I had to climb up on my cutting table to get a photo. Mind you I HATE heights of any sort :o) That is a LONG way down for me...what a wimp :o)


I also received a beautiful parcel yesterday from Mark Cesarik with the most vibrant fabric charms...eeek...really stunning colors! His new line Cosmic Burst  on will be available April 15th. I cannot wait to finish the quilt top to cut into these little beauties. Thank you Mark!


Off to sew the quilt top!!!!!

I likie that design layout and I am afraid of heights too so more power to ya!

Isn't it sooo much fun trying to get back in shape for that bathing suit every year *sarcasm inserted here.* ;)

Looks great! And be careful, I fell off my cutting table while trying to photograph a quilt once! I was not hurt, but I won't be doing that again!

Your quilt is going to be so nice! It reminds me of the game where a little plain flies back and forth across the screen shooting enemies as they come, but it's much prettier than that!

A.MA.ZING!!!! I LOVE IT....and yes I meant to shout!!! I am jealous you get to play with Mark's new fabric. I am playing with his last line right now. Just posted today about trying to find the right sashing.

I just love the layout for your quilt. It will be so beautiful.

I wanna be friends with Mark!! Love the vibrant colors.

Great layout choice and MUCH easier than doing the Subway Quilt (which remains on my to-do list, someday, far away).
