You may already know what all of these tiny, little 2" squares mean:
- A sore wrist from way too much time with the rotary cutter
- A lot of work still left to do and not even close to actually beginning anything
Seriously, what was I thinking? I started cutting squares two days ago and have spent the majority of my free time doing so since. I still have so many to cut. I almost gave up at least three times.
Then I finally decided I was really committed, so I copied her pattern into Excel to more easily change some of the color lines to better match what I have in my stash. I had to recount how many blocks I would need for my changes and couldn't really do that with the pattern sketch she had posted. Then I decided that a 60" x 60" quilt of 2" squares wasn't enough torture so I decided to design an additional row of blocks making the quilt 60" x 72". I'm just not a huge fan of square quilts, and 60" isn't long enough to really wrap up in. I have too many smaller quilts already. I loved her subway design back when she did it as a wall hanging and was really happy to see she was doing it as a quilt. I'm excited/terrified to get started on this. She posted the first block last night so I'm already behind. I still have to cut bright blue, gray, black, white, pink, brown, and navy. I also need to pick up some Eggplant Kona for my purple line and maybe a few more grays. I have a feeling I won't be keeping up on this quilt-along.
I should be working on quilts for Christmas presents. Instead, I'm just adding another one to the WIP pile. But really, aren't all these tiny squares so dang cute?
