March Lotto Block is Floral Shoo Fly

Posted by on February 29, 2008 in blocks | Comments Off on March Lotto Block is Floral Shoo Fly

For March, we will be making traditional Shoo Fly blocks from floral fabrics with white-on-white (WOW) backgrounds. Kate made this beautiful example.

The directions for making the blocks can be found here (on Also check out Kate’s step-by-step directions on this blog for sewing half-square triangles.

The March block lotto discussion on the forum begins here.

You may make up to 8 blocks to enter in the block lotto. The floral fabric used in each block must be unique, however you may use the same WOW background fabric in all your blocks.

To enter your blocks into the lotto:

  1. Share a photo of your block(s) by attaching it to a forum message, posting it on a blog or photo site and linking to it from a forum message or post a message on the forum letting me know that you are sending it to me via email so I can share it with everyone.
  2. Send me your name and mailing address via email (if I don’t already have it from a precious month). I need your email address so that I can send you the sneek peek (if your blocks are made at least one week before the end of the month). I need your name and address so that if you win the drawing, I can let everyone know where to send your blocks.

Several of the sneek peekers have already made their Shoo Fly blocks–you can see them here: March Photos.

Thanks again to those who have taken part in the first two month of the block lotto – we’ve seen some great blocks, and we look forward to seeing many more before the end of the year.
