Rail Blocks Made

Rail Blocks Made

Here are my 9 Rail Variation blocks for May. These were quick and fun. I even found some blue and green fabric from the seventies that was perfect for a few of the squares . Can you tell which fabric it is? (No, it’s not the carousel horses – that was from the nineties, LOL).  These are all for a chance in the...

Susannah Block Winners

First, sorry I’m a couple hours late. The Easter Egg Hunts went on a bit longer than I was led to believe by my family and the Easter Bunny. Sheesh! But we have two winners. I randomized the list of 83 block entries (of the total 90 made; 7 were donation blocks). Then the resulting order was put into Mr. Random Number Generator, and he picked number 67, then number 1, which corresponded to: ROBIN and NEEDLED MOM Congratulations, Ladies. Thank...

Last Call for Susannah!

Our March Block – Susannah

Our March Block – Susannah

Welcome to March at the Block Lotto! To celebrate the eventual arrival of spring (in the Northern Hemisphere, that is) and all things Irish in March, our block this month is heavy on the greens. It’s  fun and easy and offers a lot of design potential. For March, we’ll be making the traditional block, “Oh Susannah!”, but we’re simplifying the name to Susannah. The finished block will be 8”, but should measure 8.5” as sewn. The inspiration and...

Four February Blocks

Four February Blocks

Well, these were fun! I’ve finished four scrap-eater blocks. They rather go together in pairs because I used some bird fabric scraps from Spoonflower to generate two, and then just sort of semi-tried to make the other two look OK. I hope they’ll do....
