I need a few 12" block so I was playing in my scrappy triangles. I make a block with 4 friendship stars. It is just so cute.
I have added this post to So Scrappy Saturday link party.
I am on the program committee for the Leduc quilt guild ( called Black Gold Quilt Patch) and at the next meeting we are starting Lotto blocks. I felt I better make sure to do it. I started in my scrappy triangles and dug out Red to make the Red heart. So February's block is Hearts in Red, Pink and White.
Here is my pink block. I really only needed to do 1 block but I just could not stop myself.
So how are we doing our lotto blocks, you ask?
We are picking a theme and a colour each month and asking members to make a 12 1/2" block. We will then draw a name out of a hat to see who wins the blocks. If you make a block you get a chance to win the blocks from that month. We did this years ago when the guild started. If we get lots of blocks like more 15, we will split the block into 2 groups and draw 2 names.
This past week I needed to do up more door prizes. So here is my hand dyed fabric do up to give away at the Edmonton and District Quilter Guild. The 5 bundles will get me to the end of the year, June.
