The liberated twist on our sampler blocks will the scrappy strings added to each side and used to put our purple and white blocks on point, for a final lotto block size of 12 1/2 inches (to finish at 12 inches in the winners' quilts).
This beautiful example was made by Christina.
This is a great month to share your favorite blocks, try a lotto block that you missed or suggest a block that you think would be great for the lotto in the future.
Block Guidelines and Directions
As usual, you may make a MAXIMUM of 9 blocks. Because of the larger size, I am thinking of a target set size of 36 blocks for the winner with a minimum set of 20 blocks. The larger size also means that they will cost more to mail–something, perhaps, to keep in mind when you are decided how many blocks you'll make this month.
Labels for Blog Posts
For all blog posts related to this month's block, please add the label "sampler 10." If you are posting a photo of your blocks, please also include the label "nov 2010 photos."
The Virtual Quilt
These twenty-eight blocks were made by sneak peekers Caroline, Christina, Ginny, Janet (S), Kasey, Kim, Linnea, Maree and Me. (Links go to blogs, for those that have them and that I know about.)
We have a nice selection of techniques and styles already ... and I think they are playing beautifully together.
