Flooded with requests from Facebookers

A couple of days ago, on a quilt shop’s Facebook page, they shared a link to the (old) Block Lotto blog–to the guidelines post for the African Violets we made last August. This block was made by Caroline.

That post, imported to this site and can be found here:

African Violets in the Dark

Apparently the virtual quilt made quite an impression because email for requests for accessing the pattern (via Google docs) have been flooding my mailbox.

Personally, I think it’s the power of the scrappy quilt–all the wonderful fabrics chosen by you combined to make a visually interesting virtual quilt that is pretty hard to resist.

The timing isn’t good, but it is a good reminder of my plan to polish up some of the block pattern directions I’ve created, remove the Block Lotto specifics and make them available.   In the meantime, I wanted to share the news of our popularity and welcome any newbies who found us via Facebook and would like to join the fun.

I am one of the few who does not have a Facebook account–mostly because I know I already spend too much time in front of a computer.  But it does make me wonder (again) if the Block Lotto should have a fan page there?


  1. Sophie, the link to the pattern is not working. It says we have to request permission to view the document.

    • A facebook page would be a good place for discussions and what-not. It would be neat, but I don’t think you should have to spend more time on the Lotto than you do. I’d offer to help with the facebook page, but right now I can’t commit to anything extra. 🙂
