May 2010 Recap

In May, 26 quilters made 142 of the free pieced reeds blocks, two newbies made blocks for the first time–welcome again to Andi and Andrienne . . . and one of them countered herself among our three winners.  Congratulations again to Balinda, Andi and Pat.

Here's the list of quilters who made blocks this month.  Names are linked to their blogs if I know about them.

Thanks to everyone for making such a great set of blocks for May.

Blocks mailed

I sent off my blocks to Balinda and Andi tonight. Congratulations! Can't wait to see what you make!

Blocks to Andi

Your 3 blocks from me are packed up, going to Michigan. It will probably be a week before I mail them off, but you WILL get them, LOL! I promise.

A Quick Turnaround this Month

It's probably because it's a holiday for most of us today, but I've already heard from our winners, confirmed their information and put together the mailing information for your Reeds blocks.

If you made blocks in May, you should have email from me.  If you didn't receive it, check your spam folder, then let me know and I'll try, try, try again.

Thanks to everyone for trying a new block with me in this month.

The June block is ready to publish tonight–there's some more bias involved in this one, but in a much more traditional way ;-)


Congratulations! to the May "reed" winners! Balinda, Andi and Pat! Make something pretty!

And the May Winners are...

On this Memorial Day....the May winners for these fun reed blocks are....





Congratulations ladies. Can't wait to see your beautiful projects!


All In, All Done for May?

Each time I've looked at the blog this morning, there's been more blocks . . . I'm hoping everyone who wanted to post blocks has done so.  The deadline is here and I'm sending the list to Carrie to randomly choose the winners.

Quite a few people donated their chances this month–I've spread them around, with 8 extra chances going to our two newbies and 3 each going to anyone who has not yet won lotto blocks. 

We ended the month with 142 blocks which means we'll have 3 winners.  The first two names drawn will win a set of 48 blocks, the third winner will receive 46 blocks.

Good luck to everyone.

My two blocks...


Here's what I put together with my winnings of the spool blocks.
I've had the inner part of the top done for months, but wasn't sure what to do for borders. I looked through my stash this morning and added the narrow green border and the outer border.
Now to find backing fabric and get it quilted.
The picture doesn't do it justice but you get the idea.

3 additional blocks from lindaBigD

I finished 3 additional blocks, bringing my total to 7. It's interesting to play with the bias. Fingers crossed!
Linda from Big D

In the nick of time!

I hope!   These are my two blocks for this month.  I didn't want to miss out on an opportunity to have a whole quilt of these, they really are fun!
Thanks for a great block Sophie, I wish I'd had time to make more!

Saturday, May 29, 2010

Another three made

They are square, they're just very badly pinned to a loose curtain! Anyway these are my four for the month as I can't find any more fabric that's suitable as black (this is borderline as it's doubledyed with a very dark green underneath).  And I really don't like the lime on plain white and I don't have any WOW unless I print some up.  I'm not donating my chances this month, I love the blocks and would like to win!  Thanks for another great idea Sophie.

One Reeds Block made

I've made one block so far, but wanted to post it in case I don't have time to make any more, I think Sophie said we need 131 for the planned number of winners, which I'm hoping is this one? Anyway here it is, using home dyed lime and home dyed black.  It's quite sad how much of a sense of achievement I feel for this one!

And for a laugh, here is the first attempt at getting the half reed attached, a perfect mitre! Not what I was after....

Reeds - getting there!

I've dyed some fabric lime green - I'm using the top one as it's strongest, the middle two came out as mid-lime and the bottom one was minty-lime.  When I get more salt & more time (not til June) I'll overdye the others or half of them to see what extra depth I can get.

Anyway, I can now make some Reeds blocks....

Monday, May 24, 2010

My blocks are all here!

Saturday I received blocks from Trudi, and today my blocks from Krista arrived and so all my blocks are present and accounted for. I have almost finished a UFO...just need to bind it in the morning and then I hope to have some time to play with making some June blocks.

Next year at this time I will be frantically sewing wedding dresses as my DD, Katy will be getting married August 5, 2011, and the plan is for me to make all of the dresses: Bride, 3 bridesmaids, 1 jr, bridesmaid and 2 flower girls...and mother of the bride (ME!). I may try to keep up with the lotto anyway, just to have some simple stress free sewing....quilt blocks fit if you make them the size of the pattern, but dresses...well, patterns don't fit everyone, so I am going to be drafting my own patterns to the girl's measurements...

Have you made something from one of the patterns here?

Seeing the great totes that friends were making inspired me to create a Gallery for this blog to showcase some of the wonderful projects it has inspired. 

If you've made a summer tote, sewing kit, or quilt or other project inspired by the quilt blocks or other information here, I'd love to include it.  My contact information is on the (also new) About Me tab.

Without further delay . . .

The sneak peek email has been sent.  If you have made and posted Reeds blocks this month, you should have email from me with the advance information for June.  If you haven't received it, check your SPAM folder . . . and if you still don't have it, let me know and I'll resend it with a smaller attachment.

If you have NOT made blocks this month OR have donated your chances and would like to volunteer to choose the winners this month, please contact me.

Edited to add that Carrie (Crickets) has volunteered to be our random winner picker for May.  Thanks, Carrie.

I received my final 3 blocks today...

... from Trudi! Thanks everyone. Here they are waiting to be assembled into something fabulous.

My May Entries

I had worked with bias in my old days of garment sewing, such as setting in sleeves or easing collar facings, so the bias part wasn't too bad (and a good steam iron cured a number of ills). I just don't have the right brain freedom to do skillful drawing with the rotary cutter. I hope to make some more before the end of the month, but wanted to get my 4 in for the sneak peak.

New to the Group

I'm Andi, a high school teacher and quilter in the Phoenix area. Here are my two blocks for May. I really had fun with the free-form piecing.

Tote bag from lotto winnings...

Sophie's tote bag inspired me to follow suit. I won 16-patch blocks last year (or was it the year before?). I made the heart in a snowball blocks patterned after the ones I won last year but needed to make them so that when they were on point they were straight up and down. I'm going to make another bag with all 16-patch blocks. I love this pattern, very easy.

Sophie, the instructions/photos for this tote are great!!

Lone block

Here is the one block I managed to finish this month. I've worked with bias before, but for some reason I had a hard time with this block. Must be my frame of mind!

The Month of May ...

The month of May is flying by for me.

On Monday, I'll be sending out the sneak peek email with advance information for the JUNE lotto block.  If you have made and posted your blocks by noon (East Coast time) on Monday, you'll be on the list for this mail.

2 of the 4 April winners have now received all their wonky shoo fly blocks.  Yay!  Thanks again to everyone for making this happen and getting the blocks to the winners in a timely fashion.  In a little more than a week, it will be time to do it all over again ;-)

I received blocks today...

Thanks Trudi for the beautiful blocks.

Debbie E

Now I can get started on putting all of them together...

This week I've received blocks from...

Lisa (thanks for the postcard)


Thanks, ladies!

Reeds blowing in the wind

Well here they are. I lucked into a bag of scraps at my LQS. it had three of these background fabric in it. Yeah.
I really had a hard time with this block but I really like them now.

May Blocks from Janet

Kathie's Final May blocks

I finished 6 of these blocks for the sneak peek, but have only had time for 1 more. These 7 will be my final count for the month. They were great fun, and I look forward to next month's challenge. Kathie L in Allentown

*Final* Wonky Fly Blocks Received in San Diego

Just came home and found an envelope from:
  • Lisa (3) Montana

Thank you all - it will be fun to make a quilt out of these colorful and fun Wonky Fly Blocks!

Another pkg arrived

Thank you Manuela for the surprise pin its so cute.

I love the blocks...

Thanks again.


Mea culpa - Change in Fabric Shopping List

They say that it's easier to ask for forgiveness than permission ... but to avoid any unpleasant surprises, I wanted to give you a heads-up that I had a change of heart and tweaked the fabric guidelines for June. and have updated the post with the fabric guidelines for the next few months.

The change is in number #3:

JUNE *** REVISED ***  will be scrappy blocks made of:

  1. YELLOW or GOLD (solid or TOT) background
  2. Scraps of your choosing (which could be those off cuts from March)
  3. RED (solid or TOT)
For multiple blocks, you may use the same yellow (gold) background and the same red. You can repeat fabrics in the scraps among all your blocks.

FYI, this now makes 3 of the 4 sample blocks that I made ... wrong, but I think it will result in a better set of blocks for our winners.

I also added a link to that post to the left sidebar ... I had a hard time finding it again and thought you might be similarly challenged ;-)

Future Fabric Guidelines

Blocks (hopefully) flying over the pond

I'm just back from the Post Office, my blocks are on their way Laura, Debbie and Michelle.  Hopefully they won't have to fight with the Ash cloud for airspace.  It is hoped to have cleared by tomorrow.  I hope you like them.  My sincere apologies for the delay.

Blocks in the mail

Sorry for the delay, been a a tough month so far and completely spaced it.  But they were mailed on Saturday.

Debbie's Lime Reeds

After taking a few months off from the Block Lotto, I'm back to play. I love anything lime green, so couldn't resist this one. Here are my four blocks.

Debbie in Jerusalem

Finally had a chance to make some more of these (I made two for the sneak peek) - such fun and a lovely block. Please pick my name this month (hmm, perhaps if I offer a sacrifice to the god of the block lotto?)!

reed blocks

Here are 6 reed blocks from me. These were fun to make, and like a few other people have said, I felt like I was getting the hang of it by the end. Ginny

Saturday, May 15, 2010

More blocks received this week from...

Belinda - thanks for the postcard and chapstick!
Kim - thanks for the fabric!


Blocks Received in San Diego

Just as I came in after going out for lunch the postman rang the bell - for me to sign for envelope from:
  • Manuela (3) Carregando Portugal - the fabrics are great in the blocks and I really like the little pin you made too. It's a great idea!

Blocks arrived in tornado torn Oklahome today

Today I received blocks from Lois (UK) and Linda (Dallas, TX). SO nice to get cheery blocks with the dreary weather we have been having here. It's been raining pretty much since Monday, when the tornadoes came through. We came through unscathed...the nearest tornado touched down 3 -4 miles from us...actually 2 tornadoes...and wiped out the grocery store where my 21 yr. old daughter was going to work this summer. Now if we need something from the grocery store it will mean a 20+ mile drive each way. Hopefully they will rebuild quickly! Today I went to Barnes and Noble to spend the gift cards my kids gave me for Mother's Day and bought Liberated Quiltmaking 2, by Gwen Marston. Maybe it will provide inspiration for using the blocks I won! I had previously decided I didn't need the book enough to justify the cost, but since I can't buy groceries or pay bills with a Barnes and Noble Card I splurged. I think that's what the kids had in mind when they chose that gift!

May block

This is my first "wonky" block of any sort that I've actually done on purpose!

Just one this month; I look forward to seeing everyone's blocks.

Adrienne L


Lois Addy I am so sorry , I only saw the name on the envelope.
And couldnt see what the name on the post card.

Also, I wanted to thank you for the post card I collect them....

Again thanks for the beautiful blocks.


blocks are on their way!

The lady at the post office was NOT happy with me when I brought my crate full of things to mail (I'd been procrastinating because of how much I had and how I hate to part with $ of course unless it's related to fabric!) during my lunch. Included in there were my blocks to the winners. Sorry it took me so long but I wanted all the pain at once at the post office! They were sent first class, so 5ish days?

Recd blocks from Addie

Thanks for the beautiful blocks..

Especially the colors...

Thanks again Addie from UK

Came home and there was an envelope waiting for me:
  • Sarah (2) Ontario, Canada
And the newish neighbor across the street just came with an envelope that had been delivered to her place in error. (It must be important - it's from Canada - she said as she handed to me. Turns out she is a nurse and likes looking at quilts.)
  • Coralie (3) British Columbia, Canada
Very pretty fabric - thank you!

Reeds for May

Here are my nine blocks for this month.  I am not a fan of lime green and would prefer to donate my chances this month.  This block was challenging at the beginning, but fun by block 12 (you can't see the first 3).

Liberated Log Cabin Quilt

I just posted pictures on my blog of possible border fabrics for my quilt. Please take a look if you can, and help me decide. You all played a part in the blocks and I'd appreciate your input here too. Thanks.
Quilty hugs,
Pat from FL & MI

Wonky Flys Mailed

My wonky fly blocks were mailed to June this afternoon.

Block in the post

June, your wonky fly from Derbyshire (UK) went in the post today. Look out for it landing in about a week!


More Eye Candy (with lots of curved strips)

I just discovered this new-to-me quilter (via a link from Brenda's blog, Scraps and Strings).  As I was looking through the Gallery of Art Quilts made by Marilyn Stewart Stothers, I found so many cool examples of using curvy strip insertions, I had to share.

Her quilt, Rest by the Summer Sea and Rest II, shares a lot of design elements with our Reeds.  Just about all the quilts inspired me to think about other ways to use this technique.  (Whether she made her quilts in the same way or not ;-)

May blocks

Greetings from Canada. I sent off the April blocks today to Laura, Debbie, and June. Congratulations girls. Here is the nine May blocks. One of the blacks has gold dots. I hope that is okay, if not I will make another to replace it. I'm short of blacks it seems.

Blocks fly from New York!

Sent my wonky shoo-fly blocks off on May 2nd...just got to post this. Hope everyone enjoys!


oh yea and my April blocks are in the mail

I mailed my blocks to Laura, June, Debbie and Michelle yesterday. 

It was an interesting trip to the PO and back because they were setting up to film a new TV show (The Good Guys, with Bradley Whitform and Tom Hanks' son, Colin Hanks) a block away from my building–photos on my blog, sophie junction

Some Reminders About Fabrics and Guidelines

Since it looks like a couple people have done this, I want to be clear about what I meant (and didn't mean) in this statement in the guidelines for this block:

If you make multiple blocks–the maximum number of blocks for entries in the drawing is nine (9)–you may repeat fabrics as long as each block is a unique combination of background fabric + lime fabric.

What it does NOT say and you should NOT infer is that it will be OK to use the same background fabric with the same lime green fabric IF you cut the curves and inserts differently. It is NOT.  I'm sorry if that was your interpretation, but you CANNOT enter blocks which have the SAME background fabric and the SAME lime green fabric no matter what you do with them.  I thought the statement above was pretty clear, but obviously not.  If you are in doubt, please ASK.

And since I'm on the topic of fabric . . .

Someone recently asked me in email if fabrics had to be "quilt shop cottons."  While it's OK to purchase your cotton fabrics anywhere, they should be 100% cotton and of reasonable quality. 

If you aren't sure if your fabrics are 100% cotton, you probably should NOT use them.  That your possibly poly or poly-cotton-blend fabric may not be obvious to you, but it will probably be clear to the winner that receives your blocks along with a bunch of 100% cotton blocks, which will make yours the ones NOT like the others.   If you have never seen a cotton quilt with a few poly-cotton-blend fabrics in it after it has aged a few years,  I'll tell you what the quilt made from your possibly poly-cotton-blend fabrics will do in an otherwise cotton quilt.  The cotton fabrics will fade over time, but your blocks will stay nice and bright and stick out like a sore thumb.  They may also pill over time.  If the quilt stays with the winner/quiltmaker, she'll look at the quilt and always be reminded that someone didn't care enough to follow the rules.  Though she might possibly realize the blocks aren't cotton before she uses them; in that case she'll just come up short because someone didn't care enough to follow the rules.

Even if your fabric is 100% cotton, we all know that cotton fabrics are produced with varying quality.  If you have cottons that are too thin or too loosely woven.  Please don't use those fabrics for your lotto blocks.

Like it says in overall guidelines (found on the About the Block Lotto page):

The golden rule of swapping also applies to the Block Lotto: Enter blocks that you would be happy to receive if you won.

Almost everyone in this fabulous group of quilters does exactly that and makes lovely, appropriate blocks month after month . . . but the feedback from the winners about the blocks they receive has included some information about bad fabrics and blocks which don't follow the rules and it seemed it was time for a reminder.

May Blocks Made

EDITED TO :Here are my 2 blocks for May! (Thanks for clarifying, Sophie!)
My technique improved with each one - my first one ended up a 1/2 inch too small(and is not in this photo.). I really enjoyed drawing with my rotary cutter. I hope I can find more fabric in my stash to add to my chances before the end of the month.

Blocks Sent from San Diego

I sent my blocks to Debbie and Michelle this afternoon!

blocks mailed

I mailed off my blocks to June and Debbie this morning. Congratulations!
Ginny in Brooklyn

Blocks are on the way

This morning I sent my blocks to Debbie, June, and Michelle. Hope they arrive quickly and safely.
Quilty hugs,
Pat from FL & MI

blocks mailed

Posted my blocks to Laura and June today.

May "Reed" blocks

I managed to clear enough space to cut and sew 9 blocks for May. I had a good time...all about how to manipulate the fabric and get those nice gentle curves and not a lot of lumps and bumps.
So, without further ado, here they are:

And since I won in April, have an overflowing sewing room, and a wedding to prepare for next summer (Sewing dresses, wedding quilt, etc...) I will be donating these this month...I don't need another UFO right now!

April Shoo Flies taking Flight

My blocks are packaged and waiting for the post office to open.  They will be mailed to Laura, June and Michelle this afternoon.  Make something pretty.

Mailing April Wonky Fly Winners!

later on this morning to the lucky winners - Laura, June and Debbie ! Make something pretty!

Debbie's Reeds

Debbie emailed her photo to me. Here are her four blocks. Unfortunately, three of the blocks seem to be the same background fabric combined with the same lime green fabric.  Until I have clarification or confirmation from Debbie, we can only count 2 of these.

These bring our total-so-far to 50 blocks.

Kathie's Reeds ( or Asparagus)

I loved making this month's block, and hope to be able to add to these six. The picture doesn't do justice to the greens I used. They look a little washed out in the sunshine. My husband's asparagus bed is supplying us with fresh stalks at this time of year, and to me, this block looks like asparagus. Some are tall, some are short, some are fat, some are thin. I've got my fingers crossed to be a winner this month, because this would just look great in my youngest daughter's apartment! Have fun making your blocks.

Some Eye Candy . . . and the inspiration for this month's block

I just surfed past this quilt on Elizabeth Hartman's blog, Oh Fransson! and thought it was a nice example of this month's colorway used in an entirely different way.  I'd love to find some of that ginormous gingham–it makes a great backing.  The cat looks a lot like my Johnny, so I had to share a photo of the quilt. 

I first started thinking about how to make a block like this work for the Block Lotto when Amy and I met for lunch in Grand Rapids, Michigan, a few years ago and she shared some blocks made in a workshop with Carol Taylor that had skinny curved inserts.  Those blocks became the border for her quilt, Sensuous Lines and Curves

And then, last summer, on Tommy The Material Girl's blog, she blogged a series of "Tunes" quilts, using similar blocks in a wide range of sizes.  They are neamed for the tuning forks she sees in the shapes.   Here's a couple of them-the images are linked to associated posts on Tommy's blog:

Tuning #1 is 41 by 29.5 inches.

36 Tunes is made of squares that are between 5 and six inches.

Check Your email for April Block Maiing Information

I've sent out the mailing info for the wonky fly blocks.  If you made April blocks,  check your email for my message.

If you didn't receive it, let me know ASAP.  You also might want to check your SPAM folder  . . .  some mail systems don't like me ;-)

Thanks to the winners for getting back to me quickly, so that I could get the information out to everyone right away.   I was going to suggest that we try to get our blocks to the winners by Mother's Day and then I realized that it is next Sunday, quite early this year. . . . so how about MAILED by mothers' day?
