  5. What a wonderful parade of Tetris quilts! Well done everyone, love them and the idea!

  6. They look fabulous! I finished mine too but I thought the parade would be a link up. Was I supposed to contact you with my finish? The link is here... http://thatssojulie.blogspot.com/2012/09/tetris-finish.html

  7. Congratulations to all the winners and thank you for hosting such a fun and unique quilt along.

  8. I hope to get mine quilted by the end of today. It's probably 2/3rds done but I don't do all-nighters like I used to and after the thread broke again! I decided to pack it in for the night. It was a fun process and I enjoyed linking up each week. It really is fun to see how the same pattern turns out so different. Thanks.

  9. What fun quilts!!! Love to see how one idea becomes many quilts.

  10. Thank you!!! I can't believe I won! I didn't know anything about Tetris until you hosted this "Tetris Sew Along". I went to the Tetris website and learned how to play Tetris. I go there everyday and play a game or two. It is so much fun! And now I have a completed, 95" long, colorful Tetris quilt for my oldest grandson that likes computer games and is over 6" tall.
    Again, thank you Melissa, Intrepid Thread, and Tetris! I am doing a happy dance today!

  11. Wow! I can't believe I'm a winner! My kids are so excited about winning the Tetris game and I am excited about the fabric. It was a great quilt-along Melissa - thanks so much! And thanks to Intrepid Thread for the fabulous grand prizes. Made my day!!

  12. Congratulations to all the winners. Thanks for such a great quilt-along Melissa! It was so much fun and it made me actually finish a quilt for myself! I look forward to doing another one in the future.

  13. I really enjoyed this quilt along and hope to get my into the quilted and finished stage soon. Thanks to you for running such a great fun quilt along. Congrats to the winners!

  14. Congrats ladies. Thanks for a fun experience Melissa.

  15. Congratulations to all the winners! But that is all of us because we all had fun working on our T. quilts. Thank you Melissa. I'm sure this was alot of work for you to write up everything and get sponsors, etc. You were a lovely hostess! I'll look for another quilt along next year.

  22. Wow! What a nice collection of quilts. I know mine has been being loved and used by its owner. She loves it!

  23. Wow have to say having watched the indivuale tetris blocks I wasn't loving it, guess I was thinking game mode not quilt mode...but seeing them all put together I'm now kicking myself for not following along, haha. Great job everyone they look awesome.

  24. Congrats to all the winners - and thank you Melissa for this fun Quilt Along. My tetris blocks are finished but I need a decent new machine that can quilt, so no finished quilt from me so far:-)))
