June Block Lotto!

Here is the skinny on June's Block Lotto!

Let's start with the block. Here are the instructions. It's a little bit more on the traditional side but still a fun block! It finishes up at 9 1/2".




And the color palette:


A refreshing mix of mint, tangerine, and lemon. Just look at that! Doesn't that get you in the mood for summer?

These are just a few fabrics I pulled from my stash for some inspiration:



How to play: Make up the block for the month following the pattern and color scheme. Make as many as your little heart desires! Leave the block untrimmed (as per request of some of the guild members). Bring all your finished blocks to the meeting on June 26th with your name pinned to each one. We will put all of the blocks in a big ol' pile and draw out a winner. If there are enough blocks to be divided, multiple winners will be drawn. Then the winner gets all of those blocks to make a quilt (or similar project)! You can't win again until a completed project is presented. Awesome!
