Oh I seriously looooooove the 80’s. Neon, hair bands, Aquanet! What’s not to love? When I saw the #80s90sCraftSwap, I knew I had to participate. I signed up, filled out my form and waited for my partner. Partner info arrived and guess what? SHE LOVED THE 80S TOO! And The Tetris Mini was born:
I did a google search, found an image that spoke to me and built a pattern from that. It’s an easy pattern, the tetris blocks themselves are built from as little as a charm square (5×5″) and 1/2 hard background fabric. I fell in love. I made two.
I had to finish one, like now (um, it was due to be mailed July 31st … oops) so I bound it, added a label and just couldn’t help adding some hand quilting (sort of a fortuitous mistake, really – I’d added negative space “blocks” during the quilting but when it was done you couldn’t really see them aaand I couldn’t have that .. could I?) and shipped her off. She is gone now, headed to her new home and partner I hope you luuuuurve her too!
I know there are some of you out there that will love this like I do and want to make it. Maybe you don’t want to figure out the math, could be you’re too busy (or lazy – hey, no judgement! I’ve bought several patterns for the same reason!) or you’d just rather have it done for you? Do not despair, I’ve done it! Created my first (full) pattern! And it was related to the 80’s … anyone surprised? I doubt it.
