LOTTO 2014 - September

K8OrlandoSeptember 1, 2014

Welcome to the September LOTTO!

The lotto is open to all and new quilters are encouraged to participate. You will learn much and have fun doing it. Participate in as many or as few lottos as you want, but even if you don't like the current month's block think about doing at least one. It's good practice and the winner will appreciate your efforts! Typically, the winner receives enough blocks to complete a nice size quilt. It could be YOU!

September - ANIMAL - Wild Duck block in animal prints with off-white. This is a fun block with an interesting secondary pattern. Try to use either two distinct animal prints, so the block pattern shows up, or use a dark solid for Color #1. (Color #1 is shown as dark green with a spiral in the image.)

This is the block:

Here's our inspiration picture! Let's make these blocks WILD!

This is the striking pattern you get when the blocks are put together:

The details:
- Each month there will be a designated block or theme; you can send 1, 2 or 3 blocks.
- All blocks must measure 12.5inches x 12.5inches with no more than 1/4" variation.
- Please include name, mailing address, forum name and $1 to cover postage for the winning blocks (Any money left over at the end of the year will go towards prizes!)
- 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.
- All blocks received by the last day of the month will be included in the lotto drawing, unless you request that your name not be entered. Some months you might want to participate, but don't really want to win the blocks. That's OK.
- You have 1, 2 or 3 chances to win, depending on how many blocks you've sent in.

Mail your block(s) to Valarie [littlehelen]. She will manage the collection of blocks and dispersal to the winner. If you need her mailing address, you may request it by sending her a message at littlehelen at comcast dot net.

Kate
Happy quilting!
(Next month - FIRE!)

Greetings everyone.....
I've not received some of the September blocks yet...so if ya'll don't mind, we'll delay the September drawing. I thought it would be fun to do the drawing next week at the retreat, so if there is anyone still thinking about doing Sept lotto, you have till my Tuesday mail delivery to get them to me OR bring them to the retreat! Will announce the sept winner next week!
Thanks everyone!

Great! Thanks, Val. I'll be watching for them. I love brown, and I've got a chunk of a jungle print that just might make a perfect border. I've already got several ideas. Thanks to everyone who made a block.
