Block Lotto for October's Meeting

If you want to play here's the scoop on the Block Lotto for October's drawing...

Every month, we'll show a block at the meeting and post a link to a tutorial here and on our blog, along with a designated color scheme. If you want to give it a try, make the block and bring it to the next meeting with your name on a piece of tape on the back. Your block acts as your lottery ticket, and if we draw your name, you get all the blocks! If we have more than 20 blocks we'll draw 2 winners. You may make up to 3 blocks, giving you additional entries. If you win, you must show us a FINISHED QUILT (not just a top!) in order to win again, but you can still make blocks for future months.
The blocks might be a little challenging and out of your comfort zone, but hey, you have the chance to win lots of finished ones with a fraction of the work!

This month's block is Pick Up Sticks using this tutorial by La Bella Colori.  Our new block is an improv, and we'll use ALL SOLIDS this time. Let's make it interesting and have A GRAY BACKGROUND (any solid gray). This should make for a fun quilt!

If you are participating please bring your block lotto to the October Meeting.
