My ‘first’ Block Lotto Sampler
I first came across Block Lotto in April 2010, when I was looking for liberated quilting inspiration and found it in Sophie’s blog. Being someone who ‘never’ wins these kinds of things, I decided that I would make blocks of my own around a focus fabric (the purple fabric–which has green and teal vines) while participating in the Lotto. Then I went back and did January/February/March. I think you can see some of my blocks from that year in the Illustrated History. Honestly, I think I could have finished it a year earlier if I hadn’t fell in love with a liberated Sawtooth border in Gwen Marston’s book.
I’ve won 2x since then (just last month in fact), so I can’t say “I never win” anymore! Thanks, Sophie, for bringing Block Lotto into my life! (Sorry the pictures are so bad.)
