Mary’s March 2011-Block Lotto Quilt

Posted by on October 23, 2011 in show and tell | 8 comments

I had to check back in the archives to see when these Blocks came to my house.  I found the answer HERE.
I thought it was April, but the posting was March and I was a newbie WINNER. Anyway.  It is all quilted and I wanted to post it with a picture of the backing.  I found the pretty red fabric that I used for the Border and Backing. I quilted it from the back and it took me a while to finish…there’s a lot stitching in there.

It is now ready to have the binding attached.  Once again I have to thank all those who sent me Blocks to make this pretty quilt.  I never knew I needed one until the Red and White exhibit came out in New York.


  1. I really like the look of your quilt. I, too, am a newbie winner (Sept.'s curved rails). I am curious as to why you chose to quilt from behind. That is a technique that is new to me.

  2. Mary, your quilt would have fit right in with those at the Armory last spring. Nice finish!

  3. Love it!

  4. So pretty! I would never guess that those blocks came from multiple people! I hope to be a newbie winner soon 🙂

  5. Mighty impressed Mary, I too, never knew I needed a red and white…. made me some of these blocks as they are FUN…. but I am a long way to a finished quilt… as I said Mighty IMPRESSED, Mary.

  6. Mary, it is beautiful! I wasn't too sure I'd like it in the variety of reds, but yours is awesome. I like your border choices, too! Great finish ~

  7. It is gorgeous Mary. Sadly I haven't got my blocks out yet as I was a winner the month as well. Maybe that will push me to.

  8. I have just 5" of Quilting space on my Quilt Table and thought the design on the backing fabric would be easy to follow and stitch. It wasn't as easy as I hoped, hence the long amount of time it spent on the table. I wish I had a 'real' longarm with the computerized stitching. DH is hesitant to invest $$$ in one. It doesn't show up too bad from a galloping horse so the Quilt Police won't get me.
