I started to not even write about this quilt, because after 3 tetris quilts in a row, you are surely sick of seeing them. But it's my blog and if I have to make 3 tetris quilts in a row, you have to look at 3 tetris quilts in a row.
Yes, I am a little tired of making tetris quilts - how did you know?
At least this one includes some color changes:
Which background do you like better? I prefer the gray & Mandy prefers the black. But I love the aqua and violet instead of pink and purple.
I think the back is interesting:
I loved the process for it. I bought yardage of the background, which is gray with black polka dots, but needed it to be just a tad longer. And I had all these solid scraps that were about 3 or 4" x 8" from making the tetris blocks. I just started sewing them together, thinking I'd just do a strip of them all the way across, but that seemed so boring. Then I thought of my dresden ruler and started cutting out wedges, but I didn't want to make enough wedges to go all the way across the quilt, so I settled on these framed squares. I'm really liking them - they look almost improv. The closest I'm going to get to improv anyway.
Ask me how I lined the back up so well - see how the quilting lines almost perfectly line up with the squares on the back - ask me how I did that - go ahead ...
I don't have a clue. I just laid it out to baste like I lay every other quilt out to baste and it just happened. But I'm glad it did!
I got started quilting my Strawberry Fields top from a couple of years ago, so I'm back on that now.
A very tedious method of quilting, but at least I have help.
I don't let him help when I'm working on customer quilts, but this one is for family.
Linking up to Freshly Pieced for her WIP Wednesday, and Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish it Friday, assuming she has that this week.
