Tetris Picnic Blanket

I joined in the Tetris QAL at Happy Quilting because I loved the concept and it looked like fun!


It really was and I'm pleased to say I've finished it.


A quick finish because I made it into a picnic blanket, using some canvas type fabric my mum gave me for the backing. I sewed the front and back right sides together, turning it through and top stitching around the edge.


The backing has a camping/holiday theme, which seems appropriate.


Happy it's already being loved and enjoyed while we play with yet more cardboard in the garden!!


I also managed to finish another Rose Star block, that's 18 and counting:


The giveaway is open until Monday so make sure you enter!
