Last week I posted about joining Melissa's Tetris QAL. (It is the previous post) I had great intentions but night shift so kicked my butt last weekend. Then may kids all decided to come home. You get the picture. I didn't do anything!
I was supposed to work this past weekend but took Saturday off to be with the kids. We have some temporary summer help and she wanted the hours. So, it was a win- win. I will just say that between 9:00 p.m. Friday night and 9:00 p.m. Saturday my dishwasher was ran FIVE times. I did a lot of cooking but no sewing.
I am off today and back on nights again tomorrow. I made these blocks my priority. Did I mention I had not cut the fabric yet?? I was trying to decide on a size. I debated and calculated and mulled... Finally, I got out the Tetris game and looked at it. I can be a little
After cutting wrong twice, here are my fabrics.
The bottom right IS purple. I was having a hard time getting it to show true today and then the camera battery died. I don't know why. I charged it before I went to Texas.......in March!
Being a week late I noticed folks were taking pictures of their grid. So, I did, too. Coloring has never been a strong point for me.
Melissa's directions called for white as the filler but I wanted black like the game. I wish the detail on the fabric showed up better. All of them are prints of some sort. The orange has a little diamond design in it. I now wish I had not used that pink batik. It is flimsy and it stretches too much.
This is Week 1
Here is Week 2. See the orange and red in the first row are carry over from Week 1.
Tomorrow she publishes the tiles for week 3. Hopefully I can get it done before I go to work tomorrow and be caught up!.
Thanks for looking.
Going to do another post today about other quilty things.
p.s. I didn't want to rethread another machine or move anything. So, I am just doing these on the Janome 6600. I do love that machine but it is kind of noisy right now. I need a new bobbin case after a broken needle. Don't ask. It was ugly. Brought my husband up the stairs to laugh at me as I muttered and cursed.
