Blocks and introduction.

My first lotto blocks!

A little bit about me.
I live in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. I am married and have 2 children, ages 13 & 9. We also have two foster kids, a brother and sister ages 17 & 15. We have been parenting foster children for 15 years, we mainly have had teenage boys. I also work part time as a dental assistant/receptionist. I have been quilting for 14 years, it is a way to keep sane in my crazy household! I make a lot of scrap quilts, I love scraps! My husband is supervisor of the Youth Emergency Shelter, a 16 bed facility for homeless youth, so I donate some of the quilts I make to them, and am hoping to do a pillowcase drive for them soon. I love making the rolled pillowcases and the shelter is always in need of bedding.
I am very excited about the block lotto's, I have been lurking on the site for quite awhile. I think it is a wonderful idea and a great chance to use up some of my growing fabric collection.
Let the fun begin!


  1. Welcome, Vicki! Hope you get to win! I've been enjoying these blocks, too ~

  2. Welcome to the block lotto, Vicki! It sounds like you live a busy and interesting life--I'm glad you found some time to play with us.

    I've added your blocks to the list.

  3. Hi - welcome! what is a "rolled" pillowcase? Do you think I know it by another name? I may have some students willing to make some. I teach high school sewing and I like to have community projects aimed at letting my students help people close to them in age. You can respond off blog to if you want. Blessings!

  4. I replied to your email address. Let me know if you require any more info.
