Everyone who participated got one ticket for each block they brought , a ticket was drawn and the winner got to take home all the blocks. I made these four blocks.
They finish up at 9 1/2 inches and were really fun to make. The lotto was organized by Berene who blogs over at Happy Sew Lucky and posted a tutorial here. I did not win the blocks but I was happy that Adrienne won them as she made 8 of these addictive blocks.
No worries as I will be making more, this time with variable grey backgrounds. It's a summer project for the small modern group at the Royal City Quilter's Guild. We will be putting them together in one or more donation quilts this fall.
Speaking of donation quilts. The community outreach group of the RCQG handed out block kits to all members at our meeting in June. Here is the completed block for the first of three kits I took home.
It's a really colourful block. All of these blocks are sewn with the fabrics in the same sequence. I'm really curious to see how they come together in the finished quilt.
The block below is from the Sea Star Pattern by Cheryl of Meadow Mist Designs. I participated in pattern testing for Cheryl this spring. I made the one block and I thought I would make it into a pillow cover but I I loved making the block so much that I think a lap quilt is in my future. You can check out other versions of the pattern here. It's amazing how different pattern choices change the look of a quilt.The pattern is on sale until July 6th and you can get the details on Cheryl's blog.
I'm one of the 70 or so participants in the 2015 New Quilt Bloggers Blog Hop hosted by Terri Ann of ChildLike Fascination, Yvonne of Quilting Jet Girl, Cheryl of Meadow Mist Designs and Stephanie of Late Night Quilter. My turn to post will be on July 12th and my blog has become a work in progress. Some of the participants made a lot of changes very quickly. I'm moving at a slower pace so we'll see what I manage to accomplish by then. I'm linking up to Let's Bee Social and Works In Progress Wednesday( Nope this one got cancelled this week). Happy Canada Day Everyone.
Oh Yes. I forgot to mention that Donna who likes the patriotic (U.S) colour combination of red, white and blue one the Grande Scrappy Tiles Pattern. Congratulations Donna!
