May Block Lotto

The block for May's lotto is here! This month is a basket weave block from Moda Bakeshop.
We're going to keep this one truly scrappy and not have a color scheme, so just pull what you have from your stash or scrap bin!

The cutting instructions are for an entire quilt so here is what you need for one block:

White Background: (2) 4"x8" 
Color Strips: All are 2.5" wide
                     (1) 8"
                     (2) 9.5"
                     (2) 11"
                     (1) 12.5"

How to play: Make up the block for the month following the pattern and color scheme. Make as many as you want as you will get an entry for every block you make! Bring all your finished blocks to the meeting on May 8th and we will draw a winner. If there are enough blocks to be divided, multiple winners will be drawn. The winner then gets all of those blocks to make a quilt (or similar project)! The winner can participate in following lottos but can't win again until a completed project is presented. 

Have fun!

Events Position

I have an announcement for you all. Jennifer Falkowski is, unfortunately, stepping down from the second Events Coordinator position. This position is now open for all of our members to consider filling. The Events Coordinators are responsible for the following:
  • Regular activities such as swaps, challenges, block lotteries, block of the month, bees.
  • Social events such as sew days, field trips, and other social get-togethers.
  • Special events such as quilt shows, speakers, and workshops.
These are the aspects of a guild that make it fun and worth being a part of but it can be a little taxing for one person to plan all of these things out. Please consider joining with me as an Events Coordinator and help make our guild even better!

We would like to have this position filled as soon as possible so if you would like to run for it please leave a comment below, contact us on Facebook, or send and email. Hopefully we can elect someone at our next meeting, this Thursday. If you have an interest, please make it known before 5:00 pm Thursday, April 10th.
