Tetris Quilt Along

Hi, all!  Back on nights again.  One more and I am done with them for a week.  I found a quilt along I am going to do.  I will be a week behind but I think I can catch up on my days off. It is a Tetris quilt along over at Happy Quilting.  I have looked at several of this week's blocks and I laughed at myself.  Everyone kept saying, "I have never played Tetris."

Boy, I have!  That is the one video game I could kick my boys' butts at. When they were in elementary school they played chess competitively.  Just as soon as the kids went in for a match we mothers picked up the Gameboys to play Tetris.  I just couldn't resist this QAL even though I have more irons than I do fire right now.

I did go to my sewing room and sew a strip on the wrong side of 10 blocks.  I was very upset until I set down to take them off and realized the tension was messed up.  The stitching came out easily.  I will have to fix the issue and try again.  I want these blocks done before my kids come home this weekend.  This quilt is for my DIL and I want her to help decide the layout.  Then I can work on my tetris quilt blocks.  Kind of excited about that!

Hopefully I will have some pictures to post tomorrow.  It isn't too late to join in.  Hop on over the Melissa's and check it out!

Keep stitchin'!

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! I love hearing from people. I have turned word verification back off. We will see how that works.
