Tetris quilt is done, for reals!

standing on the couch to display it I will use it as a cape delicious nerd quilt I made this here quilt closeup2 close up1

I finally finished my Tetris quilt this afternoon. For a couple weeks all it needed was the edges to be hemmed and I avoided doing it for no particular reason. I took care of that today, so now it is complete. Pieced together, sandwiched with all three layers, quilted to stitch the layers together, and finished all around the edges. Quilt: complete. I think I will wear it as a cape.

Update: yes, at some point I’ll get around  to reposting the pictures in a size other than gigantic.

Update 2: The quilt is about 50″ x 72″.  Individual squares are 4″ finished.

Update 3: I made another one with an all new design, Tetris Quilt 2.0.

    I love it! I was a huge tetris junky back in the day when you had to go to the bowling alley arcade to play it. 🙂 I love that you made the board so you can get a tetris. What a way to start the sweet dreams every night. 🙂

    Full disclosure: most of the design was done by my boyfriend. (www.steveswink.com.) I made a few suggestions and small changes, but the credit for the game pattern goes to him.

    Wow, thanks to StumbleUpon, I have “stumbled” upon your glorious ork of art.
    Really though, thats a very neat quilt. I am impressed. Not just at the design and inspiration, but the quality of work as well. You should be proud of yourself.

    I’m interested in these posts of yours with pictures. However, it takes approximately 37 1/2 minutes to download your blogs when you include them. Any way you could compress them? Also, could you go back and fix all the ‘what I wore to work’ ones, too. I gave up on those really fast, which is a shame because the whole way I found this site in the first place is because I wanted to see some examples of pencil skirts.

    I just want to tell you that not only is this quilt an awesome idea, but I love that the long piece is about to drop down into the hole. Very satisfying to look at. 😉 I guess you can tell the Tetris addicts from way back from their response to this.

  23. Jon K. replied:

    You might want to make those pictures thumbnails and have them link to the originals. It’s crashin mah browzer!!!

  24. Jezzy replied:

    Gahh!! I wanted to do that! Someone made a tetris baby blanket and I thought I’d make it into a more sophisticated (tetris sophisticated) type of quilt…

    But umm. I’m not big on sewing so if I copy you like the jackass I am, it’ll probably end up looking like a mangled lampshade anywho.

  25. Rose Marie replied:

    how big are the squares

  26. Andin replied:

    Success & good job.
