*******************************************
WELCOME PALS to The FEBRUARY LOTTO MONTH which celebrates St. Patrick's Day and my Grandson, Spencer's 8th Birthday! Everyone is WELCOME!
5 REASONs TO JOIN?? (1)IT IS FUN!! (2)Never any pressure. The choice is always yours as to how many blocks you have time to make (3)It is a great place to practice and get ready for joining in a Swap (4)It is FUN TO WIN and/or to see a PAL WIN and be able to make a quilt that will be loved and hugged or used in any way they choose and (5)If you make a block to keep, you will have a Sampler Quilt at the end of the year :) :)

We will be making the Summer Porch block from A Quilt for ALL Seasons book. PLEASE, PLEASE READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS as well as earning bonus tickets!!!
TIP: Fold your triangle and mark the center. Fold your strip to find the Center. Place Center to Center, Pin and sew with a Scant 1/4"

SHARED FROM VELDA: Even though this is an easy block, we all have to pay attention to the 1/4" and centering our strip and lining up the two triangles to be balanced. Here is a link to how she makes this block https://vimeo.com/27274021'>https://vimeo.com/27274021

BLOCK CUTTING INSTRUCTIONS:
* SQUARE - SCRAPPY Prints or TOT - 5" Squares
* CENTER STRIPS - CUT 1.5" x 8" for the center strips as close to a Light Tan TOT's or Tiny Prints. (I picked up a Primitive Gatherings for Moda pattern 1158 to use with mine. Sort of a Dark Creamy/Light Tan)
* You will be making 4 BLOCKs to a SET. DO NOT TRIM OR SQUARE UP :)

Here are a number of Jacquie's blocks although Photobucket is not cooperating at the moment. The centers are cream. The photo makes them lighter. DO NOT TRIM your TIPS

For me I spend St.Patricks Day celebrating Spencer's birthday. He was born a few hours before this FUN day! WHen I was working I would always wear green to avoid being pinch - OUCH!!!!

*** If you are making a block for your End of the Year Quilt you will need to make a 3.5" unfinished block to enjoy a very pretty 12.5 unfinished Year End block. This block is in the Egg Money Book but I wanted to see more colors in the fabric block than in the center strip. Very doable.

ENJOY and HAPPY STASH DIVING!!

I have several cut, (i didn't count) and 3 made up. Still sewing away.

Second post-4 set made need to press. 21 more cut (yes I know I should have counted as I went!). Need to find some more cream.

I am thinking, it may easier for the winners if the tails were left intact?
Have a great day! Valerie

I should clarify - 21 of the small blocks, that would be 5 more sets. I found a cream yesterday so will get to going on the rest.
Have a great day! Valerie
