Another post on New York Blooms


Hi again everyone - just been trying out another arrangement and I really like the blocks set this way rather than in the square format. So two photos, one with just the four blocks and then another with a piece of the subway fabric just pinned to see what it looks like. This fabric I had intended to surround the blocks no matter what arrangement. I tried them in a horizontal line but that did nothing for me at all and I am more than happy with this one.  The "blooms" are 7" square.

After borders it will not end up looking so long and skinny.
 
I haven't got them quite straight in the line-up, intending to get a hold of some of the grey gridded fabric which is on the market now instead of my old flannel!

See you!!

Thank you all ladies for your comments - a great confidence boost for me! Hope I will have further posting in a week.

Long and skinny does not bother me at all - I like that it imitates the subway lines on the map. I love your four blooms! Do you know that the subways only run through 4 of the 5 boroughs in NYC ...

Thanks Margaret, the vertical setting has really grown on me.
Is there a specific reason as to why the subway only goes through four of the boroughs of New York?

No subways go to Staten Island ... there is a ferry or
the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge. It is probably too costly to build tunnels plus it's the entrance to NY Harbor ... lots of big ships, etc.
