Here are my blocks for January.  I love these black and white beauties and went crazy making them.  I am new to the Block Lotto Community and this is my first post.  I am from Grand Haven, Michigan and live about a 10 minute walk from Lake Michigan.  I am married and have four grown children: 3 sons and 1 daughter, three of which live on the West coast and one in Florida.  I started sewing and quilting in junior high and am a member of the local Lighthouse Quilt Guild. I began my career as a teacher but for the last 13 years I have been the scholarship director at the local community foundation.  At the end of 2015, I plan to retire and  spend a lot more time in my sewing room.


  1. Welcome Barbara! Whenever I see a “newbie” with an address close to someone I already know here, I wonder if there’s a connection. It’s nice to know that quilters find this group something worth sharing. Good luck in the drawing and welcome to the block lotto.

  2. Hi, and welcome! I joined the community a year ago. It has been fun and a learning experience. Dena, in VA

  3. Welcome Barbra! As you can see Block Lotto is a ton of fun. I Joined a year and a few months ago. I was looking for a sit down hobby while recuperating and quilts seemed to interest me… I borrowed a sewing machine learned to use it and found something more then a hobby! This journey has been wonderful and I hope it lasts for the rest of my life. Happy sewing!
