I’ve been watching this blog since earlier this month, when I followed a link from another quilter’s page.  I debated with myself whether to participate.  I don’t have a lot of WOW in my stash, but I do have a lot of brights.  I had some spare time on my hand today (and needed a break from my current project), so I gave it a shot.

The first 3 blocks were a mess.  One a total washout, because I completely miscalculated how much fabric I needed and ran out half-way through.  One I may be able to salvage for myself – but the coloured strips will not all be the same width, so it’s not part of my set for this lotto.  The third one was close – just missed on one corner.   Finally, with number 4, I seemed to have it figured out.   I completed 5 good blocks, found enough fabric to correct the 3rd one, and here are my six blocks for January.  I promise that they are not as lopsided as the picture suggests – I’ll have to be more careful with my placement next time.

If I get some more time this week, I may make another 3, but I wanted to get these posted before time runs out, since Sophie was kind enough to add me to the group really quickly.   I’m really happy to be here, and I’m looking forward to seeing what’s next.  Please drop by my blog for a visit. 


  1. Wow, you're pretty quick, too. Your blocks look great.

    Our new total for the month, with your blocks added, is 232 blocks!!! Yes, we will have FIVE WINNERS.

  2. they're lovely. And I'm pleased to hear I'm not the only one that had trouble with these 'easy blocks'!
