More About Our Company

The Block Lotto has been a monthly online activity for quilters since January 2002.  It is open to all quilters, world-wide, at any level of experience.  No commitment is required beyond mailing the blocks you enter and keeping in touch:  make and enter blocks when you want; sit on the sidelines and read along when a block doesn’t really interest you or you don’t have time; make blocks only for yourself for a sampler quilt or your own projects and share them in the show & tell gallery.

On the first of each month, the new block and guidelines are published.  Participants make blocks and post photos of them.  Each block made becomes a chance to win a set of blocks at the end of the month.
