September Block Lotto – Modern D9P

General guidelines for Quilt Block Lotto: 1. Make one quilt block (or more) following the pattern and color scheme outlined in this post. For every block you make and bring to that month’s meeting, you will get one entry in the lotto. If you are unable to attend the meeting or forget your block on […]

August Block Lotto – Stashbuster

This lotto block has a nifty tutorial here: Colors are solid slate/dark gray and the rest is anything goes (just try to mix it up as much as possible with a wide variety of colors, both brights and lights, warm and cool, etc.). Great block for using up some scraps! You can construct it as […]

July Quilt Block Lotto – Boomerang!

This month’s lotto block is a paper piecing pattern and tutorial provided by Trina Peterson using a nice vintage color palette supplied by Wendy Franczak…thanks, ladies!  If you’ve never tried the paper piecing technique (or maybe never even heard of it!), this one is about as simple as it gets…you can do this! You’ll learn […]

June block lotto

Happy June, warm days, summer is here!  No correlation to this month’s color palette, necessarily, I just liked the way everything played together so well in this photo 🙂  Mustard, eggplant, dark navy, and teal. For the block design you get your choice of two, each one a negative of other.  Or, you can do both!  You […]

May Block Lotto – Red and White Twin Sisters

OK, I wasn’t able to do the ‘choose your own adventure’ block this month…apologies 🙁 It will come back at some point, though! I was inspired by the simplicity of the Cherry Jubilee ‘show within a show’ at the International Quilt Festival last month in Chicago, so that’s the color palette this month: red and […]

April block lotto – scrappy strips, warm and cool

Kristin Gumbinger shared this block idea w/ me shortly before the last meeting. I didn’t have a block yet for April, so it worked perfectly!  You can chose to make scrappy strips in a warm palette (reds, oranges, pinks, golds) or a cool palette (blues, greens, purples).  The block is 18″ finished, so 18.5″ unfinished. […]

May-be Someday Block Lotto

May 14th, 1787 was the date earmarked for the Constitutional Convention to take place in Philadelphia, PA to form a more perfect union of the then 13 newly independent states.  Only two delegates showed up on time, some states boycotted altogether, but a quorum of seven state delegates was secured on May 25th, initiating the […]

March block lotto – For the birds!

March in Wisconsin means the sandhill cranes are migrating North and is one of the first signs of impending SPRING, which was the inspiration for the lotto block this month.  It’s kind of a flying geese meets log cabin, with a gray gradation twist (gray-dation?). I went with red because it reminded me of cranes, but you […]

February Block Lotto – Valentine Bouquet

I am writing this post from my smartphone during a break while at my daughter’s volleyball tournament in Milwaukee, which is going to go longer than expected, so I just downloaded an app that allows me to control my DVR and record the Packer game we are going to miss. Ah, the many miracles of […]

January Block Lotto – HSTs!

JEB is in da house!  Sorry I’m so late in getting this out 🙁  Got some pretty big block lotto shoes to fill behind Andria, so please be patient with me.  This is my first time blogging.  Like, ever.  I’m fairly sure I’ll be an addict once I get the hang of it, but there […]
