Just for something different I like to try to make a few Block Lotto blocks every month.
This month's Block Lotto block, Put a Frame Around It, calls for some bright solids.
While I was looking for some bright solid scraps I came across a lot of various sized pieces of pink solid scraps in a box of "girl scraps" - most left over from making clothes, quilts and pillowcases for the granddaughters when they were younger. Rather than just use a piece of pink in a Block Lotto block I decided to use the pink scraps to make an entire quilt using the Block Lotto block because also in the girl scrap box were some bits and pieces of princess/castle scraps. I had a bit of purple solid left over from making my pansy quilt top that was sitting out and so a little donation quilt top was born.
It's been too cold to go out to the clothesline to take pics so I hung it over the quilt rack in the guest bedroom. I should have closed the curtain...I didn't need a ray of sunshine in the picture.
It will probably be quite awhile before I get this quilted and before then I may add a pink/purple frame type border to the entire quilt similar to the frame in each block to make the quilt a little bigger. Right now it measures 36 x 54 and I usually like to make the donation quilts for kids about 40 x 60. I'm about out of pink solids so time will tell whether or not it gets a border.
