Block Lotto: May 2015

Since we had a small turn out for the April meeting (I blame the rainy weather!), we postponed the April block lotto drawing to the May meeting. So there is still time to make your Curvy Pinwheels!


And moving on to the May Block Lotto, it is a Disappearing 4-Patch. Another easy one with only 4 pieces to start out! Click the link for the tutorial.

As for the colors, please use a solid white for 2 of the squares and a solid color (your *favorite* color) for the other 2 squares. If you can't pick just one color, make 3 blocks and choose your top 3. :)

Here is an example of the block to get you started.




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 PROJECT (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!
If you have any questions, just ask!
