London Underground 150 Years Quilt Challenge

25 Mar

I’ve pretty much finished the body of this one and I’m happy with it:)  From what started out very differently using the numbers 150,

quilts 102

it’s ended up much more like how I had originally planned it, but by cutting the circle into pie shapes of different colours and hues in order to be able to sew it back together again, inspiration was drawn from colour wheels and Caryl Bryer Fallert.

Steep learning curve on those curves.

Just need to add the finishing touches then I can take it along to the next London Modern  Quilt Guild Meeting.

Looking forward to it.

    HI DJ,
    I have only just seen the completed piece and it is wonderful . I cant believe that you achieved those circles with piecing !! That is awesome and now that you know how to do it the next time becomes easier . I think that the introduction of grey wedges with lettering is brilliant .
