I've been working like a crazy person over the last week to try and get my Tetris quilt finished for the quilt parade on Sept. 11th. I'm afraid my life has come down to eat, sleep, and quilt with not much in between. When I decided to hand quilt my Tetris top I wasn't aware, or didn't remember, that I only had two weeks to finish between the put it together post and the parade. When I found this out last week I only had about 40 of the 336 squares outlined. Now I have about 290 finished. I'm so close and have about a week left. I figure it won't be a problem since I did about 250 this week alone. It's surely a work in progress which gets me linking up to Freshly Pieced where Emily from Mommy's Nap Time is the guest blogger today. She's got some great projects going and the linky is full of other wonderful WiPs so check it out when you're finished with mine. Here we go...
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
|Here's a close up of the side. I quilted a grid though all the gray squares and outlined the red piece not quilting between every square. You can sort of see the quilting in the grid but do you see what I mean about it not standing out?|
|I quilted the top strip the same as the side. Just a grid on the white and outlining the other pieces.|
|I'm very excited about the binding on this one! I did a red binding with my Walk in the Woods quilt and LOVED it so I had to try again. This red is from the Bungle Jungle line by Tim and Beck for Moda.|
