February Block Lotto
The instructions provided by Sophie of Block Lotto were very clear and my blocks turned out the correct size.
I used a compass to help me make my circle template. There is a circle template included in the instructions that you can cut out and glue to your template material but I felt it would be easier for me to just draw my circle on a scrap of file folder.
I used glue to hold my fabric circles onto the backing fabric and that allowed me to remove the pins and it all stayed in place for me as I was sewing it to the background. After the blocks were cut in half, it was a bit of a challenge to align the two semi circles together to complete each block but it was easy to overcome.
I think these bead blocks would work beautifully with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge and I think I will make some each month.
