LOTTO - October 2013

toolgrannyOctober 1, 2013

This month think PINK. Those of you with a little girl in your life will realize that if you win these blocks you could have a pink quilt together for Christmas. And, if you don't have a little girl in mind, this being Breast Cancer Awareness month, you could also create a wonderful quilt for the next fund-raising raffle.

In any case, this is a very simple block made in three values of pink. You'll notice from the samples that having a distinct dark and light makes a great difference.

Our block is Lover's Knot, link below. All the usual lotto guidelines still apply.

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.

Okay, I'm in. It has been a long time since I participated in the lotto and I miss the excitement! I'm going to commit to making 3 this month.

I don't think I have a single piece of pink fabric. I may have to go buy some, but I'm in too.

Hi Nanajayne: there's no email address on your garden web page, so I was not able to send you an email when you requested. I will watch for your email and respond asap!

This one went together well for me! and it was pretty neat, too, that I often thought about Breast Cancer Awareness month while sewing PINK!! I'll be mailing three of these sometime next week.

Thanks Beth. Those are lovely.

Meaningful month for us as daughter just found out the four lumps in her breast are not cancer after all. Pink now has special meaning in this family.

Unfortunately I didn't make any this month. I'm sorry - too busy with costume sewing.

The blocks look great.

oh my GOSH!! We have been away for a few days; just checked my email and found that I WON those gorgeous PINK blocks!! Thank you, THANK you, one and all...I can't wait to see them in person. I wasn't keen on the idea of 'pink' in the beginning, but once I made my blocks, well...I changed my mind! and then when the picture of the group together, oh my!! They are amazing. Not sure yet, but my thoughts are perhaps along the lines of getting my sisters to help....we could make a quilt for next year's Breast Cancer Awareness month....all four of us participate in some Breast Cancer charity or another..... Thank you all So much!! âÂÂ¥
