Some for you; one for me!
I just came across an interesting idea while looking up block lottos. Several guilds do this and if yours does I would love to hear which blocks they use.
Here's the idea: each month when you make blocks for your group's lotto or swap, you make one extra to keep for yourself. You can follow the color instructions or select a different color plan for your blocks. At the end of the year you've shared in the lotto, plus you have 12 blocks to make your own quilt. Each month someone wins all of one block, but yours would be a sampler of all the blocks.
I'm thinking of doing that with our lotto this year and making a black/white block each month to keep.
