The Very Exclusive Sneak Peek for August

Posted by on July 24, 2016 in housekeeping | 0 comments

The sneak peek has been emailed to everyone who has made and posted blocks so far this month. It’s a very small, exclusive list … As usual, if you should have received it but didn’t (or vice-versa), please let me know.  It’s also a good time to make sure that the blocks I have attributed to you on the at-a-glance page is...

I tried and have one to donate

I made three in order from left to right. I think only the one on the right qualifies as spiky but, gosh, it only takes up half of the block.   The other two lost most of their spikiness  when I squared them up. I tried but just can’t seem to get the hang of them and I had a lot of waste.  I’ll try a few more for my QAL when I have a chance.   Cathy L in...

I’m still in shock…

I hope it is ok to post this here. I haven’t gotten to play the lotto in quite a while. But I continue to follow along and love seeing everyone’s creations. A few years ago when I was just learning to quilt I started playing the Blocklotto. I found a little community that is supportive and encouraging. And I learned so many great techniques and even won a couple of times. One of the techniques I learned was building a string quilt. We made string hearts one February for the lotto and I really enjoyed it. I’ve played with it...

Lots of Envelopes …

Posted by on July 16, 2016 in blocks, sent and received | 3 comments

I have been remiss in writing here, but between 24 June and 8 July I have received envelopes from Kristin, Robin, Sophie and Julie (24/6), Laura and Kathy (28/6), Margaret (29/6), Su (4/7), Linda and Teresa (6/7) and Debbie (8/7).  Thank-you all for participating in this happy process.  There is still one more envelope to come, and then the grand opening will happen.   (Still quite busy with life, so trying to avoid quilt distractions.) There was a question raised about the cost of International postage, and I said I would record the postage...
