Tetris quilt!

Post by LucyInTheSky »

I originally made this Tetris quilt (viewtopic.php?f=10&t=10058&hilit=tetris+quilt) using a solid square for each block. Nice and simple. But, I love tnitnetny's 3D blocks and after a few years, decided to redo my quilt. And here it is! This is going to a friend's mom. She [the mom] recently lost her husband unexpectedly, then her father-in-law, then found out her breast cancer came back. I was talking to my friend, saying I wanted to make a quilt, were there any her mom likes? Her mom asked for the Tetris one. I said "is she sure? There is a curse word on it...?" and my friend said "with everything, that's how my mom feels". To get it finished by Thanksgiving (when I'm in Tucson, where my friend is) I spent about 4 weeks straight working on it (including taking a sick day from work), and I'm so happy with how it came out and can't wait to give it to her next week :grin:

So sorry to hear about your friend's mom.

I do love the quilt, though. The blocks are amazing!

That's great, especially for someone going through so much at the moment. I love the way you did the blocks.

I picked up your blog right as you were in the home stretch for this quilt, and it convinced me to stay. :nod
Mostly hibernating here. Find me on Twitter @rmdcade.

Woohoo! I just went there and was like "whoa! That's my quilt! On the front page!" - thank you. And, yes, blurring, I totally understand and am glad that you were still willing to feature it.

Oh, and when I first read it, I read "Lucyinthesky, a former member" and was like "what? Did I get kicked out?" Heh

Don't hurt me, I'll do whatever you want! :shock: I'm excited for the Fall 2015 swap - someone will be getting a quilt (or a few someones, since I'm not the only quilter). 2014 was finishing projects. 2015 will be more fun new stuff!
