****************************************************************

WELCOME to the LAST LOTTO Month of 2018. IT has been a Wonderful Year with a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS and a HAPPY NEW YEAR just around the corner!!!
As always these are the simple rules:
* Sign-ups to let me know who wants to enjoy making this block if Life Happenings don't get in the way.
* COMMUNICATION as always is the biggest Key. Let everyone know how you are doing. Don't leave the hostess hanging at the end of the month wondering if you were or were not able to make some beauties because there were soooo many parties to go to
* There are NO stupid questions, so please ask away. I know many will be able to answer if I don't see it first.
* Enjoy the journey of anticipation :) :)
*****************************************************
Do you remember all those Christmas Strips and 5" blocks we traded last Christmas?? This is a Great Block to use them. We will make a beautiful Easy Christmas Block. I don't know the name of it so I hope some will help me with it. It is easy to make and will make a beautiful quilt.
Image
* Make a TEST BLOCK to find your quarter inch seam and MEASURE your 2.5” STRIPS. NO SOLIDS PLEASE. Think Christmas Swirls, snowflakes etc ...
Start with a 4.5” WoW Christmas style square.
Add 2.5” Christmas strips to opposite sides of the square.

Repeat again with the other sides of the square.

Square to 8.5”. Do Not Undercut.
Give yourself a few fibers depending on how thick your thread is.

Cut a 5” WoW Square. Fold in half diagonally and fold again. Open it up and place the center of the square on the TIP of the Center Corner. Make sure it is the proper position then begin diagonally stitching checking to see your stitching goes across the tip. See picture.

Repeat for the next set of 2.5” strips and corners.

So - Let's Get Started making some MERRY Blocks.

BEFORE MAILING - - -
* Attach your Address Label PLEASE to the FRONT CORNER
* Place ALL blocks in ONE LARGE BAGGIE.
* PLEASE add $2-$3 to help with Shipping to the WINNERs

DIFFERENT WAYS to RECEIVE your WINNING tickets …
* 1 ticket for each block

* 3 extra tickets - For Each coordinating FQ

I am a little confused with the directions. I will have to try this with some fabrics and see if I can figure out the sizes to use, etc.
Will not commit just yet. See if I can do this one???

MEASURE your 2.5” STRIPS.

Teresa, where did you find the pattern for this block? I'd like to try and find it and see if I can make it before making a decision. Thanks.

Teresa photos of the process might help. This does look and sound a bit confusing.

But my WOW may not be Christmas style, just Every day. Will that be ok? With chemo avoiding large stores.
