This month's block palette is easy: black and white. Feel free to use a solid black or a print that is mostly black (tonal black on black would be great). Dark grey or charcoal would be fine, too. The background should be white.
The pattern is a an Old Maid's Puzzle variation (or School Girl's Puzzle) and the instructions can be found HERE.
*Edit: Follow cutting instructions for the 12" block, which actually gets you a 12.5" block.
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 October 9th 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.
