Block Lotto

Have you seen any of the new blocks that are being made for Block Lotto this month? I think I am in love!!

Last night I made this one as a trial and I know that I am going to have to make a lot more of them. ;) The premise is to use a starting orphan block that is 3.5" or less and then work your way into a block that will finish at 9".  The only other rule is that it must be made from scraps - no problem here. :)

For this block I started with the green/blue hst. These little orphans can be complex or as simple as a single hst. I don't know about you but I have lots of little orphans that need homes. I hang onto those little pieces thinking they will find their way into a quilt but not always sure that it will happen. Well it will happen now!

Kudos to Robin for coming up with such a great idea for the blocks this month!

Boy! do I have little orphan blocks for you! I keep all my 'oops' and sometimes, they are tiny little "oops". Enjoy! ;^)

Looks like a fun way to use up all those extra bits and pieces.

I think I see a big number 4 in those scraps. At least that is what stands out to me. Oh, what fun.

Hi Ellen

I think this would make a marvelous quit. I would love to see the finished product.
