WIP Wednesday 7.11.12

A lot got done this week (for summer that is).  Here's what's happening

All the Tetris blocks are cut and ready!  I just decided to join this QA yesterday.  But with a sleepless night and my Accuquilt GO! Baby, the blocks are ready for Tetrus Tuesday.  My color choices are:

Yellow  Burgandy
Orange   Brown
Blue (dark)
Purple Blue (light)
White Cream

I'm not sure what color I will use for the "void" spot yet... probably black.

I worked on my first "rag" project.  I made a bag that a co-worker showed me how to make:

It's okay.  It will probably end up being a gift bag for somebody since I'm not really a bag person.

I'm making progress on my tumbler charm quilt.  Here's five rows already.  I also got a lot of tumblers cut while cutting out my Tetris QA blocks!  Getting more and more attached to this quilt.

  1. Great project Kathy, and thanks for the shout out!!

  2. I really like the tumblers. They grew on me instantly :)

  3. Your tumblers look great. Very scrappy. I need to get mine cut out soon for a sew along that's already finished. Ha! Very behind.

  4. Fun Tetris QAL and Love the tumblers. You are so good at keeping track - something I need to get better at. Happy Quilting.

  5. Tetris quilt a long sounds great.
    I hope one day to get myself in order enough to take part in one of the QA's.
    I just joined the sampler at the local quilt shop. Just one block each month for 20 months.

  6. Love the rag bag. I've always been a huge fan of fuzzy unfinished edges.

  7. Lots going on in your life. That's a great looking bag! The Tetris quilt sounds interesting. That was always a favorite game of mine. Especially the Russian version - the original.
