The directions for making the blocks and fabric/color guidelines can be found on the Quilting on about.com, Scrappy Sixteen Patch Quilt Block Pattern.
The April block lotto discussion on the forum begins here.
You may make up to 8 blocks to enter in the block lotto.
To enter your blocks into the lotto:
- 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.
- 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 16-patch blocks–you can see them here: April Photos.
Last month we made a record number 284 lotto blocks. Thanks to everyone for continuing to make the monthly Beginner Block Lotto a huge success.
Here are the 9 blocks I made for the lotto this month.
