April Lotto.... - -Postponed

Post by maryq » Thu Mar 21, 2019 3:00 am

. . . . Bring May Flowers

EDITED 04/17/19

Looks like everybody is super busy with other projects this month, so I have an idea to de-stress every one from making blocks this month. Let's COMBINE April and May---since it's "April Shower Bring May Flowers" If you've made some April Blocks, hang on to them and send when you make May! I'll post May under a separate topic. I figure this way... winners will get a nice assortment for April & May---the showers and the flowers.

Thanks for all your support


Good Morning Lotto Lovers.



Here's the April Lotto! Put on your thinking caps as this month is a quilter's choice. But the theme is APRIL SHOWERS!

Your block can be anything that says RAIN!
Umbrellas, rain drops, storm clouds, lightening, mud puddles, goulashes. Below are a couple ideas. Blocks can be applique, paper pieced, pieced.. what ever you'd like. Might be a little more challenging this month... but go for it!

I found a lot of great directions and ideas on Pinterest.
Blocks should measure up to 12.5" unfinished, but don't square up.

As always, one ticket for each block, and an extra ticket for binding strips. Please enclose $2-3.00 for postage.

If you have any questions, just give me a holler. I'll be home from my trip on April 3

And as a little hint.... May Lotto will bring the flowers!

This "rain" theme has stumped me. I just made up a possible block. Let me know if it isn't going to work. I have another idea, and we have a bit a time to search. Here it is for scrutiny from the masses:

Here are my 4 blocks, (if Mary OKs them). I used to do stained glass pieces (when I was younger), and found the duck and umbrella patterns in one of the few books I kept. I had an idea of a cloud with a lightening bolt, but the bolt would not co-operate.
