Sun Rising over Mod Mod Sampler

Posted by on June 4, 2014 in block lotto community, my sampler | 6 comments

It has been six months since I joined Block Lotto and I am having a great time! I like the way my scrappy mod mod sampler is coming along.  Since I wanted to work with the fabric I have and not buy,  some of the colors or piecing changed a little.

I was pleased to when I saw the June block had curved piecing. Learning to sew curved seams is on my to do list. Although it has been challenging,  it wasn’t as difficult as I thought.  I have a few puckers and sizing for the first few blocks are close but not exact. I hope by the tenth block I will have something to submit for the lotto.

  1. I loved seeing all your mod-mod blocks together on your blog and now here. I’d like to think the Block Lotto is an opportunity to try something new and making one of the samplers is a chance to practice. I predict you will become very comfortable sewing curves this month 🙂

  2. WOW! I love what you did with the blocks. The colors are amazing together.

  3. I love the way these are laid out! It looks so awesome!!

    • Hi Julie, Thanks. Sophie’s block selections for the sampler are working well together. 🙂
