This is gorgeous!  Absolutely stunning. 

Is the quilting an allover meander?  It's hard to tell from the pics.

This is Elizabeth Hartman's design. It's a "stylized interpretation" of the Tokyo Subway system. The applique on the back is from her pattern.


If you look at the flickr group of the other quilters who have done this quilt, there are a LOT of different styles. Some with black background instead of white. Some with different backs. Someone even took the actual Tokyo Subway Map and duplicated it! Soooo cool!


Raindancing - it is a meander! I did a boxy style...my very first EVER machine quilting. I'll be making many more. This was so much fun!



My husband is thrilled with it. While I was making it, he told all our kids he isn't sharing. My youngest called him a "meanie head" because he wasn't going to share. I finished it around 8pm one night....it was an hour or two later, she was sleeping with his blankie.

Beautiful!  This pattern is on my "to make" list for when I build up enough rainbow colored scraps.

Thank you all so much! I didn't start the quilt with the quilt-along. I found it after it was finished. LOL

When I started, I thought for sure that I had enough fabrics in my stash. I didn't. I have more decorator fabrics than cottons in my stash...so I bought a few fat quarters here and there. I had 3 prints for the longer lines and 2 prints for the shorter lines. My fabric variety is limited....but I really like the way it ended up.
