I feel like doing a victory dance today---I finished the Tetris quilt just in time for my last guild meeting, but I've been waiting to post a picture of the finished quilt until after I gave it to Katie's boyfriend, Ryan. Well, he came down yesterday to get her after her week home, and he finally got his quilt. his reaction was all I could have hoped for---he really liked the quilt a lot. In fact, he raved over it. That's a good feeling when giving any quilt, but if you followed along with me, you know that this quilt turned out to be quite a challenge. I learned so much from making this quilt---quilt making skills, but other things too. I persisted in spite of pretty significant setbacks, and that's a really good feeling. I came closer to getting the result I wanted in the finished quilt than I ever have before. It was worth all the trouble, and I'm glad I started over and kept going instead of giving up.
