September Block Lotto is Curved Rail Blocks in Batiks
…………. oh no, curves!!!!!
I have never done curves before.
I thought to myself, “Sophie has never steered you wrong yet!”
so I gave it a go
Sophie, here are my six (6) blocks for this months block lotto which I will donate 😉
I am really hoping to get some more batik fabrics and make up some more later in the month.
I REALLY enjoyed making these blocks 😉

so much so I made another 9 – these can’t go in for Block Lotto as they all use the same three fabrics and due to a cutting error on my part only measure 8 1/4″, but I am smitten with these batiks ……… I can see a lap quilt coming up in the near future.


  1. Block Lotto has really stretched my nerve, and quilting skills. I agree with your statement that
    "Sophie has never steered you wrong yet!" Your blocks look great.

  2. That's going to be a great looking lap quilt 😉

    I am planning to make some smaller curved rails for one of my WIPs. After working through the measurements for these, it's pretty easy to use the rule of them of making your starting rectangles 1 " wider and 2" taller than your target for your finished size block.

    I've added your blocks to the list.
