LOTTO - August 2013
I'll post this a bit early as I'm on my way out of town for a week.
This month the block is a bit more challenging than the simple one we used for July. It's the Morning Star 2 block made with three fabrics of the same color family and an off-white background. See the picture for samples. This should make up a lovely quilt with a nice secondary pattern. I used batiks but any bright fabrics will work. It looks best if we keep the color family thing.
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.
