Adventures in the life of a gorram nerd

I made this Tetris quilt a few years ago for a friend (and I’ll go into more details about this quilt later). About a month ago, I was talking to a (different) friend who said her mom really likes my quilts. I asked if there were any ones in particular and her mom picked out this one. I had been wanting to remake this one with 3D blocks, so this was perfect. So time to make Tetris Quilt 2, or Shit Still Happens (won’t be its final name).

I did a tiny bit of redesigning on the pattern. Nothing major. Also, it will still have a black background and white (not pink!) border. This was just to make it easier to see. This is my fancy drafting software. It may resemble Excel, but it’s definitely not 😉

Here are the black and white fabrics. The Moda Onyx Grunge fabric is one of my favorite fabrics of all time. Since I’m doing 3D blocks, I wanted a background with more going on than the solid black used in TQ1. Next up – seeing what’s in my stash for the blocks. Each block will now have 5 shades of that color, but more on that later!
