December Block Lotto

Hello! For December’s block we are going to try some paper foundation piecing!

The color inspiration:

Icy blues and aqua with light grey as the back ground color (a good example is Kona Ash if you’ve got it). I even added a few dark blue-greens and navy.

The pattern is called Icky Thump by Julie at 627Handworks and you can get that for free RIGHT HERE.

A few guidelines
  • You will make four of these smaller blocks to equal one block for the lotto
  • The background pieces (sections 1 and 6) will be light grey
  • Make sections 4 and 5 with your darkest fabric
  • Make sections 2 and 3 with your lightest fabric
There is a tutorial on paper piecing this actual block HERE.
This is a spectacular example of these blocks and color scheme put together.

How to play: Make up the block for the month following the pattern and color scheme. Make as many as you want as you will get an entry for every block you make! Bring all your finished blocks to the meeting on December 12th and we will draw a winner. If there are enough blocks to be divided, multiple winners will be drawn. The winner then gets all of those blocks to make a quilt (or similar project)! You can’t win again until a completed project is presented. 

Have fun!
