It's Week 2 of the Tetris Quilt-A-Long!!!! I am so excited to see how many people joined in with week 1.
And so how about a winner of the Week 1 giveaway who gets the beautiful Birds and the Bees Design Roll. And Mr Random Generator says the winner is . . .#43 - Deb - Congrats :)
If your new, great were so glad to have you!!! So let's get to week 2!!
Now you just fill in your grid with your pieces. There were a lot of people who mentioned they wanted to continue their blocks from last week into this week. For example, my Orange square that cut off last week would continue into the bottom of this weeks grid :) That's totally fine. You can do whatever makes you happy.
This is my grid for the week 2. And for fun, if you really want to get tricky, you can even have extra pieces go off to the right :) I will add the extra purple square (where the circle is) into week 5. You can make it however makes you happy, stick to just 1 blocks a week, or let pieces float over to over weeks :)
Now lay your fabric out to match your grid. (Yes, 2 of my yellows are right side down, but no worries, I fixed it before I pieced it :)
And now just sew your squares into rows and then your rows into your Week 2 Block!!! (For detailed instructions on sewing a grid/patch block together see this post :)
And now your second block is complete!!! And now you can enter to win the weekly prize :)
The Weekly Prizes are sponsored by the Fat Quarter Shop and a huge thanks goes to them for their support of the Tetris Quilt-A-Long.
