Hi Friends! Thanks for hanging with me during these strangest of days. I have put together a block lotto for October! Included is an instruction sheet for what I hope is a fast fun block for you. Additionally, please get scrappy with this one. As the sheet explains, I chose the size to help you use up any jelly roll leftovers along with other things in your stash. Once you have made your block or […]
Well it has been a HOT minute since we had a block lotto, but I am happy to report we are back on track. These last few months have been a challenge for many of us.

With the holidays approaching, I thought it would be fun to make something practical to use for the next holiday feast, or a fun last minute hostess gift and then SWAP with another member of the guild. Your pot holders can be themed for the holidays, […]
