Brainstorming the “Dud” Lotto – December Bonus
It seems we have enough interest (and quilters with spare blocks from the Block Lotto) to move forward with this idea. Thanks to Julie for suggesting it.
Here’s what I’m thinking:
- Quilters can enter up to 12 blocks, made for the Block Lotto at any time in it’s history, for chances in the drawing. As usual, they may contribute blocks, but opt out of the drawing–I know that not everyone loves working with blocks in various sizes and colors, and that some may see this as an opportunity to pass on their extra lotto blocks.
- This will be a BONUS activity for December. There will still be the usual lotto block (which the sneak peekers have already seen). Both drawings will happen at the end of the month on New Year’s Eve.
Here’s where I need your ideas
- I know that some of you don’t have any dud or leftover Lotto blocks, but would like to play. What is the best way for them to enter, without asking them to make more blocks during an already busy month for all of us? My first thought was that anyone interested could contribute a 4-inch, width of fabric, strip of fabric, maybe a black and white print? Or two strips from a jelly roll? Or … do you have an idea? I don’t want this to become a fabric lotto, so I’m thinking anyone can include fabric for up to 4 chances, or combined with “dud” blocks for a total of 12.
Updated to add the collection of extra lotto blocks I found in my orphan blocks box.
