August Block — California Poppies!

August Block — California Poppies!

Hi! I’m Julie, and this month we’re going to do a really easy block that can use up some of those warm summer colors you have in your scrap bin or stash closet. It’s a basic 16-patch block made with a bunch of 2 ½” squares, in the colors of California poppies – because I live in California. The block is 8” finished or 8 ½” unfinished. You may make as many as 9. These poppies are our state flower. The traditional ones are either orange or...

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...

July Block Instructions:  Red Forest

Hello.  I am Deana and your July Block Lotto hostess.  I have been quilting for over 20 years and enjoy creating my own designs.  You can find me at dreamworthyquilts.blogspot.com.   Many years ago I was in a quilt shop and fell in love with a red forest quilt on the wall.  I took a picture and hoped one day I would make it.  I have decided to do that quilt for July’s Block Lotto.  It is a very simple block, and you will make them in...
