The Sunshine Online Quilt Guild members make quilts for Quilts Beyond Borders and Wrap-A-Smile. A monthly Lotto is one of the activities. Each month members have the option to make any number of pairs of 12 inch blocks of choice in the month's theme. One block of the pair goes toward a charity quilt and the other goes into a Lotto drawing. I haven't participated for awhile but decided to join in again. This month's theme is GREEN. From scraps I made two Tennessee blocks and two Nine Patch blocks and mailed them on their merry way.
My blue scraps went toward four 8 inch Broken Dishes Stars
I haven't won in awhile but it's fun to try at least one of the block of the month.
Of course my sewing machine is a year old today and out of warranty so what happens? It starts acting up...thread keeps catching in the bobbin....cleaned bobbin area, tried different bobbin, tried different spool of thread, changed needle, messed with tension...cussed a little...tomorrow is another day. Now I'm hand quilting.
