Finally I have one block made. The cutting and sewing was a lot of fun and much easier then I thought. I am so happy I was "forced" to try this. Without Block Lotto I would have never attempted it. Thanks!
Deciding on the fabric was the difficult part but I think I managed to get it right. The colors in the photo are not quite true. The blue is vivid with a turquoise tint. I love it. I made a second exactly like it to save for my sampler.
