February LOTTO - QIAD Whirligig - The WINNERs Are!!!!!

Post by TeresaK » Mon Jan 27, 2020 1:06 am

IT's PICKING TIME!!!!
Congratulations to you all for sending in some very Springtime Flower Blocks. I LOVED them all and I know you will also. These will make a very Special Quilt for a Loved one for sure.
After putting them up on the wall I saw that I could pick 2 winners for the blocks and 1 for the 4-patches. It makes a smaller quilt for a child but these blocks are so quick and easy to make you will have no trouble in making the quilt a Lap size.
CONGRATULATIONs go to - - The WINNERs are !!!!!!
For the Blocks - - Maryq and Valerie
For the 4-Patches - - Teresa (me) I am excited to use these in the same way we made January's Blocks or on point to make the quilt bigger. Thank you all for agreeing to send them in with your blocks.

I can't wait to see your arrangements of these blocks. EXCITED!!!!! Now on to MARCH. Sure hope you come see and enjoy making these BIG BLOCKs!!!! Chriss suggested them and I agreed :) :)
______________________________________________________________________________________
WELCOME Pals to the FEBRUARY LOTTO BLOCK FUN!! The Whirligig block is another quick one after you have made the first set. This is a set of (2) Mirrored Imaged 8" Blocks using a scant 1/4โ€ seam.
Definitely a Fun one but a winsie bit harder. It is my hope that you will be able to find some time to enjoy making these blocks and possibly WINNING ENOUGH to MAKE a WHOLE QUILT plus getting to know more about your Pals. I am looking forward to seeing some New Pals join me along with all our Faithful ones.

LET's get started!!!
** BLOCK: Whirligig block - Very Easy and Quick after the first one made. USE a SCANT 1/4โ€ seam ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™

Here I am, asking questions.

Is there a pattern for this block?

Are you wanting a 2.5 inch strip in addition to the block? I believe I have lots of WOW and lots of floral. I like the idea of making mirror image blocks.

Teresa, I have to ask, too - do you have a photo of this block? Pattern? And it's early and I've only had one cup of coffee, but I'm not sure what you mean by "mirror image".... Same fabrics, but reverse the white & floral to floral & white? Or reverse the spin of the whirlygig? Or??

Wonderful that you both have the pattern ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ I have it somewhere also but couldnโ€™t find it in my mounds of patterns so I made them to her tutorial. She does go quickly but I took pictures as she went through it so I could use them as I made my first set. Got to LOVE digital phones that take pictures you can delete later ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘
I have one made plus got all the way In the next 5 where all I need to do is sew the 4 sections together ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

Happy Stitching ๐Ÿงต!!!!

Yippee!
I have 6 sets ready to mail! Once you get the hang of them, they aren't hard, but took me a little while to get the pieces going the right direction!

Will post a picture of mine later.

WOW Mary - 6 sets? How wonderful!!! Will LOVE seeing a picture of them. Hope you didn't mail them yet.

I was also going to include - if everyone sends in the the 4-Patches I will choose a winner for them also but everyone needs to do it.

So I will ask the question: Will everyone send in the 4-Patch blocks??????
