LOTTO - July 2012
Thank you for joining in the lotto!
You get to be even more creative than normal this month! Gather your blue and yellow scraps and prints, then put them together in any star pattern you would like to use. Use the same star pattern for all three or mix it up. It's up to you; have fun with it!
This lotto is open to all and new quilters are encouraged to participate. You will learn much and have fun doing it. Participate in as many or as few lottos as you want, but even if you don't like the current month's block think about doing at least one. The winner will appreciate your efforts!
Here's the drill:
> each month there will be a designated block or theme
> you can send 1, 2 or 3 blocks
> all blocks must measure 12.5inches x 12.5inches with no more than 1/4" variation, please
> with your blocks include name, mailing address, forum name and $1 to cover postage for the winning blocks (Any money left over at the end of the year will go towards prizes!)
> if possible, either attach your name to the back of each block or write your name in the seam allowance with a fabric pen so the winner knows who made the block (this is not a requirement, just a request)
> all blocks received by the last day of the month will be included in the lotto drawing
> you will have 1, 2 or 3 chances to win, depending on how many blocks you've sent in
> we have a clever way of choosing the winner, with a couple different quilters involved, to keep it fair
For July, you can use any star block, as simple or as complicated as you like. The theme is blue and yellow, but some white mixed in is OK as long as the overall impression is "Blue and Yellow". No juvenile or novelty prints. Please use all cotton fabric, with nicely pressed 1/4 inch seams.
I've attached pictures of the blocks I made for this one.
Don't hesitate to ask questions or make suggestions. This is YOUR lotto!
