DH and I were talking a few weeks back
and I mentioned needing to finish up
my map challenge project.
He asked me what I meant
so I explained the challenge.
He grabbed his sketch pad
and drew what he thought of
when he considered a "map."
And I knew what I would do
for my final post of this challenge.
This black and white neighborhood fabric
was just too perfect for the background.
And I found eight different brightly striped fabrics
in the stash for crosscut inserted roadways.
I even pulled out a yard of Keiko Goke log cabin print
to use for the backing . . . but then things stalled.
Which honestly seems to have been
my overall reaction to this particular challenge.
Lots of ideas and lots of stall-outs.
It's a worthy challenge but it just hasn't resonated enough
to make we want to cut into my fabrics and make a quilt.

To finish what I started
in terms of mapping my own quilting journey,
2018 is year fifteen and the best
way to share much of what I've worked on
this year is to click through these three links --
There have been many other projects,
but these will give you a good idea
of where I've been this year.

Now that I consider my Maps and Mapping Challenge done,
I'm looking forward to the two new challenges in 2019.
