Another Lotto Inspired Quilt

Mary–who recently rejoined the Block Lotto–emailed these photos to me just before my move . . . and I realized this morning, I never posted them.  (Sorry, Mary.)

She made Watermill blocks for the lotto in September 2005.  She didn't win, but because her mother loved the blocks, she made some duplicates and others and put together this quilt

I know I sound like a broken record when I say that if you didn't win blocks you wanted, you can make some for yourself  . . .  but here's a beautiful example of someone who did exactly that ;-)

I love the fabrics in this quilt and the pieced border.  It looks translucent, like stained glass.  (And the quilting is VERY nice, too).

Thanks for sharing it with us.


  1. Very nice, Mary!

    From the whole quilt view, I really thought they were somehow placed on white circles and that in 2005 the BlockLotto was into applique. Wonderful fabric choices!

  2. Isn't it interesting how our minds see circles and curves, when it's all straight lines ... kind of like our roses this month ;-)

  3. I think because I made it, I never noticed the circles. Thanks for pointing out this.
