I finished my Tetris quilt last night including hand quilting and binding. I'm so happy I finished in time. The day of the parade for this is Tuesday. When I started doing the hand quilting with cotton perle I wasn't aware or didn't remember that I only had two weeks to get it done. I panicked and basically ate, slept, and quilted. It was insane but I finished with four days to spare. I love how it turned out in the end but I'm so frustrated that I can't seem to get a picture of it. I'm tried editing and several different light versions and nothing. Oh well, I know it looks good, right?
I just loved making the quilt following the Tetris Quilt-A-Long. You can see previous posts on this quilt for the different blocks and the quilting progress here. You can see other people's work on the flickr group.
|This is my second quilt with red binding and I'm in love. I'm considering making this a habit whenever possible. I love the contrast of the red on the gray.|
|Here's the finished quilt out for an evening on the grass. I tried to have my hubby hold it up while I took its picture but even though he's 6'6" he's just too short. That doesn't happen very often so I had to take advantage of the grass.|
|Here's a closeup of the front side of the quilt. You can sort of see the quilting or a hint of the quilting around each shape.|
