End of Tetris QAL

All the blocks for this quilt have now been made and I have stitched them together to make the top. A reminder of the process before I show you the completed top.

Week 1
was stitched to week 2 

Then week 3 and 4 were stitched together

 Week 4

Week 3 and 4 were stitched above week 1 and 2
Finally weeks 5 and 6 were stitched together and added to the top

week 6

I wanted a square quilt when it was finished so I made 3 more tetris blocks and added them to the right hand side.

Finally I added a narrow white and then black border. The finished top looks amazing. I wasn't sure it would all work as I hadn't put the blocks together before they were all finished. Each week I had just cut the colours I needed from fabric I hadn't used before.

I already have the backing and the wadding (batting) so this week I will finish the quilt including the binding. 

Thank you Melissa from Happy Quilting for running this quilt along. It has been fun and is the first time I have taken part in a quilt along. To make it even more perfect I won the give away for the week 6 block. Yipee. So really good as I have made a very pretty quilt and won a lovely jelly roll and had the fun of visiting other people's blogs and Flickr photos to see what they have made. I will definitely join in another quilt along in the future.


  1. Your quilt is fabulous. Love the way you finished your borders!!! And I am so happy that your first quilt-a-long experience was such a good one :)

    1. Thanks Melissa it has been great fun. Hope to have the quilt fully finished by the end of the week.

  2. I really like the scrappy feel to your Tetris quilt. It turned out great.

    1. Thanks Anne. I'm really pleased with how it turned out.

  3. Your top looks great! The white border frames it nicely.

  4. Thanks Carolyn. I liked Melissa's idea of a white and black border as all the different colours and fabrics could look a bit busy.
