A more muted feeling

At the Brighton Modern Quilters meeting on Monday night many members brought tons of scraps.  The group is making the Tokyo Subway Map quilt by Elizabeth Hartman of Oh, Fransson! and thought some scrap trading would assist their personal stashes.

In spite of the fact that I think the Tokyo Subway Map quilt is totally amazing, I’m not going to participate.  Too many other projects on my plate/in my mind that aren’t getting done.

Of course, that didn’t stop me from looking through all the scraps!  I chose a few small pieces and this strip above.  I just love the colors!  I’ve been thinking about doing something in a more muted color palette and this may be it.  For now, I’ve stuck it to my design wall and I just stare at it from time to time.

    I have meters of that same fabric, and plan to use every inch of it…..I love it so much.
