DECEMBER LOTTO - Double Slice Layer Cake + Strips: EVERYONE WELCOME!!

Post by TeresaK » Wed Nov 27, 2019 7:37 pm

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVE!!!!!! We had a great month with lots of splendid colors!!!! Thank you all for enjoying some festive sewing 🧡
The Winners are...
Maryq and Valerie for the Blocks and
Katy for the Strips.
CONGRATULATIONS πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠπŸŽˆ

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU ALL!!!!
I am looking forward to a New Year of Lotto Blocks. Hope to see you there πŸ˜β€οΈπŸ‘πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘πŸŽŠπŸŽ‰πŸ™πŸ˜

Hello Lotto Pals - Yes! We have arrived in the magical time of the Year - Christmas!!!

* This block we are making is the Double Slice Layer cake from Missouri Star Quilt Company. It is a FUN, FAST and EASY block with NO SEAMS to match and they will stitch up very quickly, hopefully with no ripping out the last seam.

* After you watch the Tutorial please make a SAMPLE BLOCK for Placements of your further blocks. This Block is TRICKY. If you do not pay attention you will sew the last 2 sections backwards. Use pins to open it up before sewing. This has been known to happen to many so please WATCH the Tutorial carefully. I really DO NOT like to UNSEW - Ugh


STRIP: (2) WOF Christmas Strips. Please place ruler ON FOLD to avoid Curves
BLOCK: 9.5" Double Slice Layer Cake /Missouri Star Quilt Co.

Watch Tutorial FIRST Please. Take a Picture of the Block for reference as you stitch some beauties together
FABRIC: Christmas Prints and Coordinating Fabric. NO SOLIDS, Please.
FABRIC: After you make the 1st Cut, sew and Cut you will see that you can use smaller sections of Christmas fabrics from your stash before cutting many more 10" squares
STITCHING: Use a Scant 1/4" so it can be trimmed BY WINNER to 9.5"

MAILING - - - - Please PM me if you DO NOT have my ADDRESS
* Attach your name label to the upper FRONT corner of EACH block
* Attach your name to EVERY SET of 2 Christmas Strips
* Send ALL blocks in one baggie
* Send ALL Strips in one baggie with your name on every set of 2
* Mail blocks with a TRACKING # as soon as possible while enjoying Christmas Festivities!!!
* My KITTY doesn't have any money so I will NEED $2/3 to send WINNING Blocks/Strips to WINNERs


WAYS TO EARN TICKETS - - - - -

I have eight blocks done. But maybe I need to clean my glasses. I don’t see how wide the strips should be. I think in the past they have been 2 1/2 inches. Is this correct?
