November block lotto – chickens

You don’t think I’m just forcing you to make blocks I love, do you??!? Because this month we’re all going to make CHICKENS!! I saw this block posted on Quilty Love and I kinda lost my mind. I knew it would be so much fun in a mix of styles and fabrics.   Here’s the tutorial to […]

October block lotto – Halloween

I chose the block they featured in February – the side stripe by Renee Tallman. Use the measurements in the pattern (no wonky […]

April block lotto – candy bento box

Here are the instructions for the block lotto for our April 12, 2018 meeting.
