August Block Lotto

Here are the Block Lotto details for the month of August!

Like having a cherry popsicle by the kiddie pool in the soft grass.

The block is an x and + block and the tutorial can be found over here! I haven't made mine yet, so I don't have a picture but I can't wait to see yours. The size of the block for this pattern is 13" finished.

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 August 14th 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!

Summer Quilt Show

Our summer quilt show will be taking place July through the month of August at the Alicia Ashman branch of the Madison Public Library. Installation for this show will be Friday, July 11th at 5:00pm. Please leave a comment here, send an email (andria (dot) olson at gmail (dot) com), or let me know on Facebook if you plan on attending setup. If you have a quilt to display please bring it then or I will be collecting them the prior evening at our July meeting. The quilts do not need a sleeve for hanging but please have your information attached to the back of the quilt if there is no label.

Can't wait to see all of your beautiful quilts next week!
