Plan for Block Lotto 2019

I left the survey open longer than planned, hoping for more responses and just closed it.  We had 48 quilters respond–which is about half as many as last year.  You can see the results of the four multiple-choice questions and some of my thoughts here: 2019 Block Lotto Survey Results Based on your input and the suggestions you supplied, here are some of the highlights from my plan: There will be a theme and uniform size (6 inches) for all 2019...

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...

Note on September Block Download

Sophie put the post and the two sheets together in a .pdf you can download by clicking here. It doesn’t open another window, but will download to wherever you have told your computer to put downloads. Oh, wait, Sophie just told me that whether clicking the link opens the PDF in your browser or downloads it to your computer depends on what browser and the user’s browser settings. So keep that in mind, too. =) I have not checked that...

September Block

September Block

If you have questions about anything, please don’t hesitate to let me know. I may have over-explained in an effort to make sure everyone could follow the directions and the pictures. It’s a picture heavy post! Making the blocks is fast – less than half an hour yields two before you add appliqués to one. You ONLY add appliqués to the blue baskets. I ask that you read through the entire pattern and study the pictures before...

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...
