When you finally cut out one project (from a kit you've had for at least 4 years)...
so you can use the leftovers to start another!
I've started making Tetris blocks, joining Melissa of Happy Quilting's "Tetris Quilt-Along"! I love quilt-alongs, I actually have managed to finish a few quilt tops and even my Orca Bay quilt thanks to the motivation of having a set schedule.
Tonight, I watched the rebroadcast of the Opening Ceremonies of the Olympics (Go, Canada!) and pieced together my blocks for Weeks One and Two. I'm using a mix of solids, marbles and prints. So far, each "brick" is different, even if it is in the same colour category. I decided on a black square to represent the "holes" where the Tetris blocks don't fill in. (Not my idea, I saw a few examples on Melissa's linky. I'm also making mine using 2 1/2" squares, not 5", so I could make use of those great leftovers. This may end up being a mini-quilt at 24" x 36", or if I enjoy it enough, I'll keep going!
So here is my block for Week 1:
And Week Two:
Melissa has some great prizes, too, so visit her quilt-along page to join in!
