And I was able to finish my Tetris quilt top!
I made 9 blocks and tried to mix up the layout. The bottom blocks are #1, #2, and #3; middle blocks are #3, #4, #5, and the top blocks are #5, #6 and #1. I spilled over the leftover squares from each block into the block above it, so each shape in the quilt is an actual Tetris block shape. And the leftover squares in the top blocks spill into the sashing.
The black fabrics in the top sashing are a little "busy" for my liking, but I decided to use all stash fabrics for this project and made do with what I had on hand.
My favorite thing about the quilt is the letters at the top. I tried to make the letters look boxy and in keeping with the block theme of the Tetris game.
I debated about adding a black border around, but it is already 50" x 63", and a good size for a donation quilt, so I'll just use a black binding.
This was a fun Quilt-A-Long and I was happy about the amount of old bright scraps I cleared out of the stash. To see other Tetris quilts, hop over to the Happy Quilting blog.
