Week 3 for me and WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.
Last week I posted about my Tradewinds quilt and runner getting finished and you can see more final results here. Love how both projects turned out although I'd like to get some better photos.
Also finished up my Stitch project and it's ready to ship. Wish I didn't have to wait till spring 2013 to see it in print and share it with you. I'm very excited.
Last but not least is the ongoing Tetris WIP. Week 6 of the Tetris QAL by Melissa over at Happy Quilting and this is the last block. Melissa has done a great job of mixing up the shapes and colors every week and this week was no exception. Staying true to playing by the rules of the game, I tried several arrangements before settling on this one.
With the other blocks already done, I was able to see which layout played nicely with the rest before I committed to sewing up the final block. At first I wasn't too happy with having 2 blue squares right on top of each other and tried several other block possibilities. There seemed to be just a little too much dark blue going on near the top half of the quilt. But after consideration, I realized these 2 blue squares provide a valuable resting spot for the eye amidst the randomness of all the other shapes. So stacked blue squares got the go ahead and it's just right. Now all I have to do is sew the blocks together.
Next week will be border considerations and after that quilting and finishing up. I already have good idea of how I'd like to finish this up. Looking forward to my final quilt and seeing what everyone else does with theirs.
I've also got piles of fabric on my counter as I try to decide what to do for an upcoming tutorial for the Let's Get Acquainted blog hop by Plum and June. This blog hop has been a great way to get to know more newbie bloggers like myself.
Keep quilting : )

I really, really, really like this blue/green tetris themed quilt!ReplyDelete
Tradewinds is such a colorful line of fabrics. Beautiful quilt and table runner!
The tetras one is amazing! I love the colours and interplay. Solid quilts always draw me! I didn't notice the blue squares at first and I often find this myself that once I've noticed something it's hard to tell if it's really unbalanced or just that I can't see the whole of it...It's. Stunning!ReplyDelete
Mom I LOVE how the final has come out! I agree that the two blue squares are a resting place and even make the tetris feel more randomly located. I imagine this quilt as a pixilated view of a landscape- maybe an idea to take further with some of your other triangle and segmented line designs. Now sew that baby up and quilt it :)ReplyDelete
have you decided on the borders for the quilt yet? i still cannot make up my mind :)ReplyDelete
