The London Underground has been running for 150 years, Wow!


The London Modern Quilt Guild’s


next challenge is to create something to celebrate this…

I found the latest tube map to be of inspiration.  Starting with a simple sketch using some of the shapes and the number 15o.  I’ve also had a look at google images relating to the London Underground, there is a lot there to get the mind working on how to go about this challenge.


Let the fun begin.

    ohh I remember travelling the tube just to watch the stations – hopping on and off I don’t think that’s what they want you to do but it was fun, and there were some really interessting designs they did with the tiles.
    It’s going to be interessting following you diong your tube-quilt.

    You’ve got some amazing visual references to pull from. Excited to see what you make.
