FIUF: August 24, 2012, Tetris QAL week 6

I am pretty jazzed.  I have my Tetris quilt all pieced!  It is awaiting borders.  This picture didn't turn out the best but it is done.  

I ran out of some of the colors and substituted in orange which I had plenty of for some reason.  I floated the last piece so it would look as if it was still falling.  

Then, I realized I did NOT take a picture of the week 6 block.  I couldn't have because I was so intent on getting it done it was never a block on its own.  I added the next three rows on to it.  Because I sewed those in black, I did some weird stuff as far as order.  So....use your imagination.  This is week 6: 

I really enjoyed this quilt along and I am going to use the idea for a Christmas throw with friends.  Last year we did a block exchange but I think a QAL will be fun.  We are starting with a fat quarter fabric swap.  If anyone wants to play along, let me know and I will post on here, too.  I am using a Facebook group for the IRL friends.

I am adding a couple of borders to this.  First is a narrow - one inch I think - light blue/silver.  After that I am  not sure.  Probably a dark border. Maybe even black.  I haven't decided what color to quilt with.  Any ideas out there?  I am thinking "organic lines" would work well.

I am just so glad to have this done. It will make a great Christmas gift.

Linking up with Melissa for the Tetris QAL and The Fabric Addict for a Whoop, Whoop!

Oops...forgot about Richard and Tanya's linky party.

Thanks to all the hosts!!

Keep Stichin'!!!

    1. Thank you! I like it and I know a nearly 14 year old that will like it and will enjoy giving me grief about how I could have "played the game better". Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Love the look of your quilt. Those colors are placed just right!

  3. Your Tetris quilt looks great. Someone will receive a nice Christmas gift. Isn't it nice to have a gift ready to go ahead of time?

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.
