Tetris #2 & X-Mas Village


Week # 2 block for the Tetris Quilt Along with Melissa at http://happyquiltingmelissa.blogspot.com/2012/07/tetris-quilt-long-week-2.html

I am using 2.5" squares and if a 'dropped block' doesn't fit, I just eliminate it so I have some nice white squares in the mix. I think I will sash these - either a black or black/white tiny pin-dot and colored corner stones.  This will make a cute baby quilt.


I am playing with the Christmas Village Quilt Along over at Judy's http://www.patchworktimes.com/.  You have to note that there are 4 designers involved and each is contributing a block (or more) each month - so you have to visit each designer, save or print instructions.  Once the month is up, those patterns are NO LONGER available!  So big girl panties - keep track of your BOM.



I haven't posted anything about the work with the http://www.freespiritfabric.blogspot.com/ Christmas in July Quilt Along - some of you have been commenting on my flicker account posts.  I have enough seasonal quilts going, so chose to do this one in black and white with a touch of red.  I am anxious to be able to put this one together, but there is still a few more blocks to come - you won't see this one again until it is a quilt top. 

The Think Christmas Blog Hop is around the corner - I will be posting on July 30th.  And the Pets on Quilts is coming up fast too.  I still can't get my furries to get near a quilt - they know they aren't allowed!  I may need to borrow someone's pet.

AND we finally got some rain with some horrible lightening!   I won Jen's traveling stash box - so as soon as it arrives, I will be posting quickly and quickly passing on - I am heading into vending season, so don't want the box to sit.

  2. I love the red/white/black block. That's going to make a great quilt. My Tetris squares are all set out and ready to stitch in the morning. I made 2 more blocks from last weeks tiles. I found this week's a little more of a challenge.

  4. Good plans for your tetris blocks! I have my blocks laid out to stitch in the morning.
    This is fun. I'm glad I saw the tetris button on your blog. Had never played tetris, but found a website where I can play for free. Good grief. Very addictive game.
    Very pretty Christmas blocks and black, white and red block.

  9. The tetris project is really interesting. I think the black and white would look great to tie it all together.

    The RB&W block is gorgeous.

  14. Oooo Sharon! Your Tetris block is really going to be cute, especially with the black/white corner stones and sashing! Your Christmas Village QAL almost makes me wish I had decided to play along, but I just had too much on my plate already and had to "Just say no!" Honestly, I would try to do everything if I could :*) My favorite of your blocks though is the Black/white/red block - Wow!!! Just love it with those dots adding extra zing!

  17. I am loving your Tetris block too. I am doing the same thing as you. I tend to use only 8 squares each block and drop one off too. It's such a fun QAL
