Block Patterns

Note: This page is in transition from the old blog and will be updated/reformatted

We’ve made some great blocks over the many years of the Block Lotto. Here’s an alphabetic list. If you are looking for a block pattern or a design idea, you might find it here. The block names are linked to the block pattern instructions we used for the Block Lotto. Blocks with multiple commonly used names, like Sawtooth Star and Square & Points, will appear both ways.
