Tetris Quilt 2.0

I finished Tetris Quilt 2.o for the online silent auction at work.  I’m hoping for at least a $200 bid, because it’s for charity and how awesome is this quilt, really?  I mean, come on, it’s brilliant, with better workmanship than last time too.  Despite appearances to the contrary, it’s nice regular rectangle with squared-up corners, too.  The quilting on the back leaves something to be desired, but at least I’m actually quilting now instead of tying them.  Soon I’ll try free motion stippling, which is so beautiful on many quilts.  First I’ll need to figure out how to drop the feed dogs on my machine and see if I have a “darning foot”, whatever that is…

After two days the bids are up to $50, using a single photo of Tetris Quilt 1.0.  These multiple pictures of 2.0 should help — the online entry allows 4 photos.  The auction ends September 24th.  How much would you bid in a charity auction for this quilt?

Update: Bidding ended at $120.  It would have gone higher except the winner timed her bid just perfectly at the cutoff.

    AMAZING. You did it! I can’t believe the minimum bid didn’t start at least at $150 so I hope things rev up soon for getting a huge bid in! They should have an outside interest bidding link, but let WF get the glory of the amount earned for charity. Don’t you need a special foot or machine to drop the feed and do stippley stuff?
