Mailing Info for California Poppy Blocks

Mailing Info for California Poppy Blocks

I sent email to everyone who made California Poppy blocks on Sunday, but forgot to post about it. If you made blocks and didn’t receive email from me, let me know.  Ditto if you find a mistake in your information–there were three Linda’s who made blocks last month, so I was a little worried about their blocks in particular. … and while I have your attention, if you haven’t already done so, please take a few minutes...

Side by side …

Side by side …

Am I the only one who does this … when a new quilt from a lotto block quilt is posted, browse through the gallery to admire the other quilt(s) that other winner(s) made.  Take a look at Nancy’s and Julie P’s quilts side by side:     Very different and I love them...

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...

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...
