Block Lotto

A block lotto is a new program implemented in 2023. The idea is that everyone makes as many blocks as they want to, following the guidelines for that lotto. Then a raffle is held and the winner receives all the blocks! Each block you submit one entry into the raffle. We will hold several throughout the year. Watch this page for the details of each lotto.

2024 Second Block Lotto

The due date for returned blocks is the April 23, 2024 meeting.

Our Spring themed Lotto is bird blocks!

They are here already, chirping and staking out territories.
The pattern is quite versatile as the birds can be easily modified to face left or right and the height of the bird legs can be increased or decreased with the block remaining the same size. Lots of fun.

Not only does the block come with a pattern, but there is also a tutorial on YouTube with Jenni Doan of Missouri Star.

Fabric suggestions:  Please make the sky background in a very light blue fabric to resemble the sky. Choose bright colors for the bird bodies and wings. Batiks work well but any cotton fabric is okay.
