November 2010 Monthly Block Lotto
Here's how the monthly lotto works...
By the first of each month, the block lotto is posted on the forum.
You may enter from 1 to 3 blocks. For each block you send, your name will be entered once.
Please put your blocks, along with a slip of paper with your real name, address, and FORUM name, inside a plastic baggie. (A return address label inside or on the outside of baggie works well too.)
Please include one dollar to cover postage for sending on to the winner. If you live outside the US and would like to make other payment arrangements, please email the moderator.
We ask that everyone only send their best efforts! We are not looking for perfection, but please take your time, have fun, and send only the quality that you would like to receive.
Please note the following guidelines:
Use 100% QUILTING cotton and please - no fur, smoke or fragrances.
Selvage edges should be trimmed off before cutting for blocks and all seams should be 1/4 inch.
Your finished block should be squared up to be no less than 1/4 inch smaller nor 1/4 inch larger than the stated (unfinished) size for the month.
Blocks need to reach the lotto coordinator no later than the last day of the month. The coordinator's address is:
12026 Punch Bowl Rd
Mercersburg, PA 17236
The winner will be drawn on the first day of the following month and posted on the forum.
The winner may choose a block and/or colors for a future lotto that will be added to the list.
Our block this month is Squash Blossom on the Quilter's Cache, chosen by quiltpartner. It makes an 18" block, and Cindy asks that it be made in golds, rusts and browns with a tan background. This is an unusual looking block, but appears to be pretty simple in construction. And the colors are perfect for this time of year!
