MAY Lotto - SPRINGTIME FLOWERS

Post by TeresaK » Sat May 01, 2021 3:04 am

Welcome everyone to May Flowers Lotto Month!! I told you that April showers bring May Flowers and I hope I did not disappoint anyone. I Love this block. It’s an easy one but watch out for ending 1/4” seam allowances and scant stitching first. Please make a sample first to get your measurements right. Trim each section carefully giving you a 12.5” block with beautiful 1/4” seams at the end. I do hope you all enjoy the Block
Image Image3 different sections of 4.5" unfinished. Do not undercut your sections or you won’t get a 12.5” sq.

FABRICS: Flowers and Coordinating Fabrics; Please No Solids. Prints are more festive for Springtime
BACKGROUND: Soft White on White
SIZE: 12.5" Sq (Not a forgiving block so please cut a bit bigger (use Scant .25" first on your sample please)

CENTER SIDE sections:
Cut (4) 4.5/8” Flower fabric. Sew a 2.5/8” Sq. of Bkgd fabric to each corner. Trim evenly to 4.5”

CORNER LEAF sections:
Cut (4) 2.5”sq's each of Leaf and Bkgd fabrics
Cut (2) 3”sqs, draw line down each center, stitch Semi Scant on opposite sides leaving big enough seams on each side when you cut down center, open and iron to the dark side to make (4) 2.5” HSTs
TIP: Cut 4.5"sq of Bkgd and Flower fabrics, right sides together; sew scant 1/4” seam around the edge and cut diagonally to get (4) HSTs for the whole block.
Stitch sections together. Trim to 4.5”sq.
Be back with #

CENTER FLOWER section:
Cut (4) 4 5/8”sqs of Bkgd fabric; Cut (4) 2” flower fabric. Sew to corners. Trim evenly to 4.5”sq

See picture for placement and fabric changes for 2nd block. You do not have to use the same Flower fabric as in 1st block, only if you have some, but I would like the center to be Flowers with coordinating SPRINGTIME fabrics

Wonderful Izzy. Hope you can join us this month

Valerie. I got the pattern on Etsy from Creek Side Stitches for $4.87 BUT they had to mail it to me. Grrr
So I waiting and tried to figure out if there is another name for it. Was looking for a name someone else used but couldn’t find anyone so I wrote the instructions myself.
I should have done it in Word because I lost everything when I hit submit. QIAD had logged me out and I couldn’t get back to where I was.
I will do it up today and post it. It is pretty easy. Each section is 4.5”

INSTRUCTIONS are up and RUNNING. Please let me know if you need assistance. Still trying to find the inside paper of instructions UGH!!!!

I’ll need to bow out for this month I’m afraid as I’m super busy and also away for a period of time this month.
Hope to get playing again with you all next month!
Happy sewing ladies 🤩❤️

Jacquie - so sorry to loose you this month but I know that life doesn't always revolve around the Lotto. Be safe and well and traveling mercies said for you and your family.

Velda - YES I always LOVE Pictures and you get an extra ticket for it unless I mistakenly took it out. THANK YOU so much for sharing your delightful creative blocks.
LOVE your fabrics and Blocks especially the bottom one. I could just lay down on the flowers for sure. Thrilled again you were able to join us. What a treat it is for me and the other Lotto Angels.

Valerie - The instructions are up top and you can get a better picture from the blocks Velda posted. In my instructions I had you cut a bit bigger because this is an unforgiving block. You need to
sure all the sections are NOT UNDER 4.5 each
ENJOY!!!!
