It's Week 5 of the Tetris Quilt-A-Long!!!!  We are winding down!!  (But only with the blocks, we still have borders, and putting it all together, no worries, we don't officially end until the 11th of September :)

So now  . . .  on to Week 5!!!  (Only one more week of pieces after this week!!)

First, Print off your grid!!
Now, color in your Tetris Pieces

Nothing fancy needed, just fill it in as if you were playing.  Here's my grid for this week.  Notice how I had to color over my yellow square.  I missed the second to last piece and had to go back and fix it ;)

Now lay your fabric out to match your grid.  (Sorry it is a little blurry :)

And now just sew your squares into rows and then your rows into your Week 5 Block!!! (For detailed instructions on sewing a grid/patch block together see this post :)  

Yippee Skippee!!!  Week 5 block is complete!!!  And now you can enter to win the weekly prize :)

  1. fun fun, I wish I was playing along.

  2. Congratulations to Kelly and thank you for hosting - off to play!

  3. Congrats to Kelly! Time to go play with my fabrics :)

  4. Hooray! I am so excited I won!! I just got my blocks 1-4 pieced together last night and hoped to get this block done before Thursday. Other than the washer/dryer error I also misplaced one of my spill over blocks. So I had to rip up block 4, I believe and rearrange it. But it all worked out and you would never know all the problems I have had with this easy quilt. LOL

  5. Hope to get to the piecing today, Kirstin got her skirt almost made. Your pink and brown twister quilt is on Favequilts today(or maybe yesterday. Congrats.

  6. Congrats to Kelly for winning. Congrats to Melissa for such a fun QAL. Only one more block to go . . . not ready for it all to end.

  7. Congratulations Kelly, Gidday Melissa,
    I love the locks with the color combos and Understand this is a game but is there any particular reason for each block being coloured so specifically. I am not a gamer so just want to know what is happenning. Especially when the marvellous Jule at Intrepid has the Merlot Kona giveaway. This is the colourway I want but u know....
    I have been following, thinking it will become clear but I haven't got the foggiest idea. Like with Anne doesn't want it to end. What to end?
    So when you have a moment love to hear.
    Cheers to you all.

  8. Another fabulous week! Thanks again for all your hard work!

  9. Congratulations, Kelly! I have fabric envy.

    Got mine done just under the wire. Caught up for now!


Thank you so much for your sweet comments. I just love hearing from you!!
Have a Happy Quilting Day :)
