Several of the dark fabrics date back a very long time. Thanks Karen for a great block. Best wishes for upcoming Christmas and holiday season to all Block Lotto quilters. Hugs...

December – Scrappy Stars

Welcome to December!    I am Karen N and I live in the suburbs of Cape Town in South Africa.  This month we are making a fairly simple star block.   I am very glad that I had the last month of the year, although Nann’s block is a hard act to follow!    The block finishes at 6-inches square, in either scrappy blues or scrappy purples.  You may make up to 9 blocks for the drawing. You will find the pdf pattern this link:  Dec2018 Block Lotto   Please use Scrappy Dec Stars as the tag for this month. Come back later in the month to see the...

Today brought the last of the Halloween blocks here    Barb R’s cutsey critters and words arrived safe and sound — Extra special again,  as have never received anything from Australia either!  I am so tickled to have something from Australia and from S. Africa! Thanks to everyone for some really neat Halloween motifs and nice framing.  Think I may need to make 2 smaller quilts from these but not to worry — have 2 grandsons and 4 granddaughters who will probably clamor to get one....
