Congratulations to the November winners. I was hoping one would have been me, but I did win the September curved rails. I am glad that Sophie found a way to make the winners non-repeaters .
Stay tuned for a preview of my curved rail project. There are only 2 borders left to go on, and other than one major mistake (try to find it after I post) I love the way it is turning out!
Again CONGRATULATIONS to the November winners. Happy sewing.
Gwen, I did NOT "find a way to make the winners non-repeaters." Most of the winners have won lotto blocks in the past and, in fact, one of them won lotto blocks last month.
One person just cannot win 2 sets of blocks in the same month…
I Love making blocks and sharing them with other quilters who love them as much as I do but…no one would continue to make blocks if there wasn't the possibility of them winning the next month, right? 🙂
Believe it or not, when the block lotto started, a winner had to finish a quilt from their blocks before they were eligible to win again … and quilters still made blocks. But then, when someone was going to HAND quilt their lotto quilt, it seemed unfair to make them finish, so you only had to complete a top.
Like some other rules/practices that didn't scale well when the number of people grew, because it took lot of effort for me to keep track of whether or not a winner had used their blocks, I dropped the rule.
oh, i would really be in trouble if I had to finish a quilt before I could win again. I always have about 20 quilts in the works. 🙂
