Another top I pieced together eons ago.  It was my third top I believe.  Maybe my fourth.

I finished quilting it April-ish I’d say.

To be perfectly honest, this quilt looks WAY better in the pictures than it does in person.

Tetris on the Fence Full RW

I made it for a friend who was due with her fourth baby!  Just the other day she passed my house running with two kids on bikes and pushing two kids in the jogging stroller.  She’s pretty much Supermom.

Tertris on the Fence with Back RW

It’s a tetris pattern pieced with flannel squares.  Some parts look GREAT!

Other parts?  Not so great.

I made this quilt before I knew I had to nest my seams.  Before I realized how stretchy flannel is.  Before I bought a 1/4 inch piecing foot.  My mom says this foot is like training wheels on a bike and I will want to take it off eventually.  No.  You can pry it from my cold dead hands.    

My other mistake?  I made a flannel baby quilt for a late spring baby.  Yup.  It gets hot in the Midwest.  What was I thinking???  Oh well.  90% of the use of baby quilts in the beginning is to lay on the floor for the baby to lounge on TOP of so I think it all worked out okay.

Still.  This quilt holds a special place in my heart and I can’t exactly pin down the reason.

Thanks for stopping by.
