October Block Lotto Sign Up

Posted by woodenzoo (My Page) on

Hi all,
After some discussion with Vicky, I'm happy to say that I'll be taking the block lotto over.
I hope that I can do as well with this as Vicky and Red have done. ;)
I'm open to suggestions for block choices. And if you have any questions, feel free to post them here or send me an e-mail. My e-mail address is listed on My Page.

Here's how it works...
You may enter from 1 to 3 blocks. For each block you send, your name will be entered once per block.
Please put your blocks in a baggie, please remember to put your real name, address, and FORUM name inside the baggie. The winner will be drawn on November 1st.
Please include one dollar for postage and return envelope.


This month's block is Shooting Star. This is a very easy block so new quilters are encouraged to join in and it also makes for a dramatic quilt that even experienced quilters will enjoy!
I think Scrappy with Cream or Cream on Cream as pictured on quilterscache.

It is a nice choice, and you can put me down for three. Thanks for taking over the lotto.

I've sent you ladies an e-mail.

I'm going to see if I can finish off my birthday blocks before I commit to joining in on this. If I do, I think it will be for only 1 block.

Thanks for jumping in ladies!
Hoping to see some new quilters jumping in also!

I haven't done this for a while either, but I don't think I can sign up this month. Really busy over here, and I haven't caught up yet. Just wanted to say thanks for taking this over, and keeping it up. I'm still looking forward to participating again, hopefully next month :)

RE: October Block Lotto Sign Up

Hi Cathy, Thanks for taking over the lotto blocks. It's been alot of fun, and I was lucky enough to win once! ;0) Sign me up for one, hopefully I'll get 2 done. The shooting star block has been in my must do folder- so maybe I'll get inspired to keep making more-or better yet maybe I'll win! Thanks again- Judy (JudyLee59)

Shannonmomof4, Welcome to the forum! Glad to have you on board here for the lotto. Hope more new quilters will follow your lead!

Judy, Congrats on your past win! You know, I have to ask if you posted pics of the blocks? lol If not, please feel free to post a pic here. ;)

Good luck to all!

RE: October Block Lotto Sign Up

For those of you wondering if you'll have time for the Lotto this month I thought I would share this: last night, while watching the new Survivor, I decided to just cut the muslin and scraps for this block. Then I thought maybe I would sew one or two squares to see how they would look. Before the show was over I had the whole block done, pressed and looking pretty! It was fast, easy and it's a really attractive block.

I'm glad you selected this pattern, Cathy - it's one I've wanted to try. It's a great block for beginning quilters too because it ends up looking intricate even though it's so easy to make.

Kate


 o
RE: October Block Lotto Sign Up

Cathy, thank you for taking over this lotto. I'll make at least two this month.

Oh look what Solstice made me do! lol I knew it was an easy block but Kate just talked me into it. I've gone through my scraps and will get started on this in the morning.
Cathy


 o
RE: October Block Lotto Sign Up

Cathy -

Please sign me up for one, and I'll update if I can to do more. Are we using unbleached muslin or quilter's cotton in creams?

Bonnie


 o
RE: October Block Lotto Sign Up

"Oh look what Solstice made me do! lol I knew it was an easy block but Kate just talked me into it."
I love it when I'm a bad influence! lol

BTW, I used unbleached muslin. I hope that's OK.

Bonnie, you have mail.

Kate,
Can you confirm the color of the muslin? On my monitor it looks white. (BTW... very pretty block! TFS!)

My first instinct is that if it's a natural/tan/beige/cream color I'd say muslin is fine. I did not specify quilting cottons, but I did say cream (solid) or cream on cream (tonal).
Does any one have a preference here? Can some be muslin while others are quilters cotton? If it all needs to be one (or the other) then has anyone else started their blocks yet or brought special fabric for it?
I'll go with majority rules here.
Thanks!
Cathy


 o
RE: October Block Lotto Sign Up

OMG that is pretty! the background does look white.
I started mine - tone on tone cream color - hope that is okay.
Sue


 o
RE: October Block Lotto Sign Up

I finished my first one last night, I used quilter's cotton cream on cream, but I love muslin and wouldn't have any problems if there are some muslin in the mix.


 o
RE: October Block Lotto Sign Up

No, it's not white. It's unbleached muslin. I had the bright light over my cutting table on and that blanched the colors a little. I've fallen in love with unbleached muslin when using scraps because of the old-timey look I guess. I'll keep this one and remake it if the group wants to avoid muslin. I have to admit I must have instantly forgotten your instructions after reading them the first time - I automatically reached for the muslin. I'll be watching to see what you all decide.
I'm OK with whatever the group wants to do.
Kate


 o
RE: October Block Lotto Sign Up

Don't redo it! I don't have a problem with muslin and cream-on-cream mix.


 o
RE: October Block Lotto Sign Up

Hi! Your block is very pretty-I don't have a problem with muslin either. I made mine last night-it really does go together fast. I had several 2 1/2 inch squares left from another lotto we did so that made it even faster! I LOVE scrappy quilts-the lucky winner is going to have a beautiful quilt! JudyLee


 o
RE: October Block Lotto Sign Up

Thanks for your thoughts on this.
We'll go with both the muslin and quilters cotton being acceptable.

This is what I did yesterday while waiting to hear the results.
Shooting Star in Black
Don't worry, it's not for the lotto! lol But I was curious to see what it would like like in black, and thought I'd share it with you. I think this one will get a black border and then made into a pillow.
I'll be sewing up the lotto block today.
Cathy


 o
RE: October Block Lotto Sign Up

Cathy - I love it! I really do like black in quilts. Nice.


 o
RE: October Block Lotto Sign Up

Very nice! The colors really pop with the black background. I saw one made with black points and I Spy fabric in the center pieces. That was very cool too.


 o
RE: October Block Lotto Sign Up

Cathy,
I am convinced. Please put me down for 2 or 3. I will see what I can get done. It looks simple and makes a great quilt.
Thanks, Nancy

Isn't it funny how different people view the same thing? I think my block is 'nice', but I really think Kate's white one looks much better! lol
But of all the black ones I've seen, I have to say that I really like Rebecca's the most. Love the border too! Thanks for sharing it with us Rebecca!

I hadn't thought about it before posting the picture, but I hope that doesn't confuse anyone. :(
We are making our blocks with cream or cream on cream, muslin or quilters cotton. ;)
Thanks!
Cathy


 o
RE: October Block Lotto Sign Up

Thanks! The border was the result of a goof. I should have left off the outer triangles on each of the outer blocks, but instead of redoing them, I just added the strips in the border to line up with the triangles. Sometimes a goof is a good thing...

RE: October Block Lotto Sign Up

Cathy ~

I just found the quilting forum and this sounds like great fun! I am a very new block quilter but the Shooting Star looks to be like an easy enough pattern for me... LOL

I would like to join this month, signing up for 1 but may try more.

I will need your address Cathy and is there any 'rules' that I need to know, other than what we are to make this month?
Thank,
Marie


 o
RE: October Block Lotto Sign Up

Welcome Marie! Here are the guidelines from the beginning of the thread:

You may enter from 1 to 3 blocks. For each block you send, your name will be entered once per block.
Please put your blocks in a baggie, please remember to put your real name, address, and FORUM name inside the baggie. The winner will be drawn on November 1st.
Please include one dollar for postage and return envelope.

Woodenzoo has been kind enough to email each of us with the address to which they need to be sent. It's expected that all material used in the lottos be 100% cotton. If you have kitties or doggies who may share your sewing space, or are a smoker, it is also asked that you sponge the piece out so that anyone getting them doesn't have allergy issues.

CATHY...... I mailed my blocks out an hour ago. They were fun.

 o
RE: October Block Lotto Sign Up

Hi Cathy - I have actually made 2 blocks to send. The one block I had a little incident with one unit and had to substitute a different background fabric from the rest of the block. Will that be a problem? If it is, I will just send the one block. Let me know and I should still be able to get them in the mail this weekend.

Edna


 o
RE: October Block Lotto Sign Up

For everyone entering the lotto, I think that general swapping 'rules' apply here, such as using 100% cotton, no pet hair/smoking and sending only the quality you would like to receive.
Edna, that said, if it's not very noticeable, I wouldn't worry about it. It is a scrappy block after all.
Though without seeing it, it's not a call I can make. How different is the new fabric? Is it quite obvious that it's different? Or does it blend well? If you feel that it would not detract from the overall quilt, then it should be ok.
If you still aren't sure, then how about posting a picture?
Other participants are encouraged to post their opinion on the matter also.
Hope that helps...
Cathy


 o
RE: October Block Lotto Sign Up

It would always be up to the winner of the Lotto whether they wanted to use the block or not. If it's nice but doesn't fit with the others it might make a nice pillow or could be used for something else.


 o
RE: October Block Lotto Sign Up

The backgrounds are both cream... thats about all the similarity there is. My thought was that all the blocks coming from different people will have different backgrounds so, I felt that it would probably still blend in.

I'm not sure how to post a photo and I haven't been able to find any information on how to do it. If anyone could give me the steps, I'd be happy to post one.

Edna


 o
RE: October Block Lotto Sign Up

Edna, there are several ways to do that, and I think this would be the easiest one for you. First of all, you have to have a copy of a digital image stored on your computer somewhere. Then to to the gallery section of this forum. In this section, it allows you to upload your picture files. Start a thread and type in the message and hit the preview button. When you do, the next screen will have a box on it above the message you typed and it allows you to browse your computer for the image file you want to upload to the site. Hit the browse button, find the file, and double click......then go to the bottom of the screen and hit the submit button. You won't get a preview of your pic, but the finished message will have a link to it.


 o
RE: October Block Lotto Sign Up

OK - I finally got a picture posted in the gallery! (and learned how to use a photo resizer LOL) Check it and let me know what you think.

Aww, thanks Bopeep! I figure it's something that I'd like to know if I were sending something out, so it's the least I can do.

I've been thinking about next month's lotto already... I'm really excited about it and hope that everyone likes it! It's a little bit different, but oh so easy and makes a great quilt too! But more about that in a week or two. :)

Had one more waiting in my mailbox this afternoon. :)

Would anyone like for me to take pictures of the blocks and either post them here or in a flickr album? Or shall we just leave that choice up to the winner of all these beautiful blocks?
And please don't forget that I'd love to have your block suggestions for future lottos! Please e-mail me with your ideas.
Thanks!
Cathy

RE: October Block Lotto Sign Up

Well, you sure had a rip-roaring response to this month's lotto. Some lucky person shall have nearly a full sized quilt arrive and it'll be extra special, because you can look at the blocks and feel the companionship and warmth of this forum.

I have a few blocks I'd love to ask you to consider, but was waiting to see if you wanted suggestions. There are so many neat ones out there to try.

My package went into the mail yesterday (Friday). I had a bit of trouble rounding up an American dollar bill! You know the banks don't carry anything less than US $20 and a money order costs $5 LOL I was lucky enough to find a friend who had some US $1 bills.

I received two more packages today. ;)

Calliope, please do be sure to get in touch with me about your block suggestions! (And of course, anyone else with suggestions!)

Edna, sorry you had some trouble. I was afraid of something like that... So glad you were able to find someone with some of them.
Bonnie, I adjusted the number for you.
Thanks to the both of you for letting me know they're on the way. I'll update the list as soon as they get here. ;)

Cathy,
I'm putting my block in the mail today. I've had it done for weeks but was hoping to do a couple more. Sadly I never found the time so you'll just be getting the one.

I do hope that everyone's blocks get here on time.
I'm getting so excited! I can't wait to see who wins!

Kate, I was hoping for the exact same thing, but it ain't happening here either. :(
Thanks for letting me know it's on the way. I'll let you know when it arrives.
