Lotto question for 2013
Jeanne recently asked about the birthday groups for 2013 so I guess it's not too early for me to start the lotto discussion for 2013.
First of all, I'm having fun managing it this year and would be willing to do it again next year unless someone really wants to do it.
I would love suggestions for blocks or themes in 2013. I have some ideas already and by December I would like to be able to post the patterns for the full year. I want to keep the blocks simple enough so that even newer quilters can participate and the blocks can be completed in an evening or two. But I want them to be interesting enough so more experienced quilters want to join in. I know we all don't have a big stash of fabrics, so I've tried to keep the requirements simple enough so you could either use stash scraps or only have to buy a couple fat quarters. Classic quilt block designs are fun and important to the history of our craft, so I would probably continue to use those throughout the year. Stars, log cabins, flying geese... classic and fun. Maybe in 2013 we can even tackle a curve and do a Drunkard's Path block!
Do you like the 'quilters' choice' months with no set block? Color themes? Specific blocks, but no color direction? One theme to tie all the blocks for the year together? Do you want to try something new or stick with what we know? Should we do paper piecing one month? Here's your chance to make suggestions!
