    I love it! I have wanted to do a DC metro quilt. It looks awesome.

    I'd recognize that Metro anywhere, having ridden it for years! Awesome job and just what I was going to do after seeing the Tokyo Subway quilt. It's probably a good thing you got around to it, though, since I have so many quilts on my plate and can't finish them all. Brava!

    thanks all! i have to say, i am quite pleased with myself. it is SO out of the norm for me to make something like this and it felt really good to try something new. i think it really helped to restart my motivation which had really waned.

    i am trying to decide now on a thin border (probably solid green) with a white border outside, or if I should just bind it in the solid green and skip the borders. any thoughts?

    I'll take the red line home! What a fantastic quilt. A thin green border works if you are using it as a wall hanging.

    Hey that's my city! I live near the orange line :) It took me a second to recognize because you left out the river and the mall!

    I grew up on the Red Line...LOVE THIS!! You may have to update it with a future line goint out to Dulles...hahaha...maybe using a really light gray in a shadow type of look! I heard on the news this morning that they were working out how to fund this newest addition.

    This is really great. I recognized it in a split second. It was featured on the home page when I signed in as "Explore / Interesting in the last 7 days" and they were right! I am out in L.A., but have visited Washington, DC often (most recently in May 2011). I always buy the one week pass and use it to get around rather than renting a car. I love that train system. It's expanded a lot since I lived there 1986-1988. Great job! I never saw a train map quilt before. It's dead on. Thanks for sharing.

    i was worried about my scraps not being solid enough but since i worked on such a small scale it was okay. if (when) i make this bigger, i will probably not be able to work from scraps and will select fabrics that are more solid from my stash.

    Very cool, I'm out by Shady Grove. Congrats on Explore. I would do a border that pulled some of the colors out to the edge. That always looks good.
