LOTTO - September 2013

toolgrannySeptember 3, 2013

This month I've chosen another old favorite, Sarah's Choice, for or blocks. Use two blues and a cream background. See sample. Sorry its fuzzy- I only have one hand this month.

Follow the usual rules:

1. with your blocks include name, mailing address, forum name and $1 to cover postage for the winning blocks.

2. 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)

3. all blocks received by the last day of the month will be included in the lotto drawing

4. you will have 1, 2 or 3 chances to win, depending on how many blocks you've sent in.

Blocks are mailed to Valarie who will arrange the drawing at the end of the month. If you need her address, find her "ittlehelen" name on a previous lotto and send her (or me) a msg.

Should the blues read as solid or can they be prints?

Are you using a tone-on-tone for the cream, or an unbleached muslin?

I am going to try to participate this month ... gotta find that CREAM!!!

I think two of us used the same darker blue fabric. What are the odds of that?
It's a test for the rest of you to find them.....

Greetings,

It's time to pull the winning number for the September lotto blocks. First one to post a number between 1 and 14 will be picking the winner.

(to insure fairness, honesty and integrity and the american way :-) an email with the names and numbers was sent to my quilt lotto partner- Toolgranny)

So if you are on line...pick a number and post!

First, you will just look at them and admire them. Then you will fondle them. Next you will lay them out. And then you will lay them out again. Each time, giving them a light caress.
Have fun!
