The Mailing info for June’s Summer Reading has been Sent

If you made any of Nann’s cool Summer Reading blocks for the Block Lotto last month, you should have received email from me last night with the mailing info.  If you didn’t receive the info or found a mistake in the mailing info sheet, please let me know ASAP. Now you can go forth and mail your blocks … I cannot wait to see the cute quilts Gail and Margaret will make from them. Mr. Zip says “Thanks in...

The Mailing List is coming … and Bonus Blocks!

The Mailing List is coming … and Bonus Blocks!

I apologize for dropping off the face of the blog (again). I had a little health scare–which is unfortunately still not completed sorted–and there are these bonus Summer Reading blocks that Karen B was not able to post (and I wasn’t reading my email, so I couldn’t help in time.) These blocks bring the total for June to 48 which means 24 blocks each for Gail and Margaret. I am working on the mailing info and have sent email to our...

Organizing Last Month’s blocks

Sorry for the delay everyone.  I have sent email to the winners to confirm mailing addresses and asking how many of their blocks they want to keep.  As soon as I’ve heard back from them, I’ll be able to send out the mailing information. Stay...

A Rainbow Scraps Idea

A Rainbow Scraps Idea

I think it was Kathie who mentioned using this month’s block to use up scraps.  I thought that was a great idea, then thought about a quilt made from scrappy monochrome blocks and came up with this layout for a 60-inch square quilt using 64 six-inch rail variation blocks and a 6 inch white border.  If you are Zig-Zag-adverse, you could consider it.

Finding the Link to the Block Pattern/Guidelines

For those who are posting comments saying they can’t find the link to the pattern, could you please tell me more so I can figure out why not?  (It’s OK if you are a lurker, not a regular participant 😉 FYI, you can always find the link to the Monthly announcement post at the top of the At a Glance...

Sophie: Catching Up with all of you.

Sophie: Catching Up with all of you.

A hideous allergy season in Santa Fe on top of some demanding work and health challenges has left me out of the loop.  I woke up early–way too early–this morning, so I’m playing a little catch-up with all of you. First, welcome BETH who not only is joining the Block Lotto this month, but is leading our session! You are a brave woman to make the leap from lurker to leader and volunteer in one fell swoop.  For those that are having problems...

A reminder about names

This is a gentle reminder to be sure to identify yourself by name in your blog posts … and if you have a common name add something that uniquely identifies you, like Kathie from Allentown or Linda from the Big D. You can set up the display name to whatever you want, but if it doesn’t include your first name, be sure to “sign” your blog posts.  It will help the monthly Block Mom’s construct the list of blocks and...

Some Scrappy Inspiration

Some Scrappy Inspiration

I was googling images of Oh Susannah quilts and found an interesting blog post with this scrappy version (with blocks set on point) … and a dozen others that were made from blocks donated for charity quilts.   Read more (and check out more of the quilts) here – Scrappy Susannah...

Mailing Information for Dressed-Up Orphans

Mailing Information for Dressed-Up Orphans

If you made and posted Dressed-Up Orphan blocks last month, you should have recently received email from me with an attachment containing the Mailing Info sheet. If you didn’t receive the email, let me know ASAP. If you see a mistake, please let me know ASAP. I apologize for the delay.  At the beginning of the week I was dealing with a NO HEAT situation at my loft; at the end, I was attending a Saturday class that wipes me out … in...

Photo Upload Problems

Photo Upload Problems

This morning I deleted more than 100 FAILED photo uploads from the website. When I could get some information on the file and could see how large they are (and who uploaded them), THEY ARE HUUUUGE!  This isn’t a problem a few of you are having, it’s a problem MANY of you are having. A file size in the HUNDREDS of KILOBYTE (KB) is plenty large enough.  A file size in MULTIPLE MEGABYTES (MB) is many, many times larger than it needs to...
