Tetris All Assembled

The final task from the Tetris Quilt-a-long from Happy Quilting is to assemble the blocks and then quilt. 

Mine is all assembled.  I tried to put it together so the final result would be a legitimate Tetris (i.e. no blanks where the block above could have fallen into) but it was hard to do. There is at least on spot where I messed up.

I am going borderless and will likely use a black binding.

Now, to quilt this.  It measures 24 by 36" since I used 2 1/2" squares.   Should I outline each block - perhaps in a black or perhaps in a color to match the block.  Not sure I have orange or purple thread but likely have blue, green and yellow.  I think outlining the blocks would be fine and then maybe something in the 4 block squares?  I open to any ideas here!

Happy Stitching!


  1. Congratulations on your Tetris top finish! Looks great!

    Sorry... no ideas about quilting this one... have you ever used "invisible" thread? I haven't but it work on this type quilt...

  2. I think it looks fabulous. I would personally probably go with a white. (Then again I go with white a lot :) But I think it would blend with your batiks nicely :)

  3. Nice finish to your Tetris quilt. I'd go with white too. It's fresh and clean and that's how your quilt looks to me.


Leave a stitch...
