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...

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...

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...
