It's Week 6 of the Tetris Quilt-A-Long!!!!  The last week of blocks!!  (But were not done yet, we have borders, and putting it all together next week and then a parade on the 11th of September :)

But before we get to the pieces for week 6, Let's first announce a winner of the Week 5 giveaway who gets the Modern Quilts HYB. And Mr Random Generator says the winner is . . .#6 - Lisa Marie- Congrats!

So now  . . .  on to Week 6!!!  (It's our last week of blocks!!!!)

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.

Now lay your fabric out to match your grid.  Now for those that did the Tetris Color Charm Swap, you might be running a little low on squares. You might need to swap out colors or get a few prints from your stash.  Just FYI :)

And now just sew your squares into rows and then your rows into your Week 6 Block!!! (For detailed instructions on sewing a grid/patch block together see this post :)  

Yippee Skippee!!!  Block 6 is done!!!  You are done with all of your weekly blocks!!!  And now you can enter to win the last weekly prize :)

This weeks  prize is a Cherry Christmas Jelly Roll by Aneela Hoey for Moda.

So what do you have to do for a chance to win this beautiful Jelly Roll??  Simple . . . Just link up your Week 6 block at the end of this post :)  You can link to a blog post or a flickr picture, or whatever.  Just make sure to link up by next Tuesday morning as I will be announcing a winner at the beginning of next weeks post :)

  1. Oh! I fell off the wagon after week 2, BUT I vow to catch up by the end of the week!!! {{Besides, I'm turning mine into placemats...and only two placemats just doesn't work for a family of 5!}} :0)

  2. Congratulations to Lisa Marie. This has been so much fun! I am sorry to see it coming to an end but it will be fun to see everyone's quilt squares sewn together. I love the Cherry Christmas fabric by Aneela Hoey.

  3. Yes! I'm so excited to finish my top! I brought my stuff to work to lay out while I wait for a meeting. Now to finish the whole thing for Friday's birthday party!

    Also - looks like the link up failed to launch! :D

  4. Congratulations to Lisa Marie! So excited to be on the last block! I can't wait to see everyone's finished top!

  5. Way to go Lisa Marie. Have fun with your fabric bundle. I'm always amazed at how fast some of you get your blocks whipped up. I've got mine designed but will need to cut a few more squares. Can't wait to see the final quilts from everyone.

  6. Congratulations to Lisa Marie and thank you for hosting.


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