February Block Lottery


At each month's meeting we have a block lottery or a quilt block swap.  If you are new to our group or blog, you can read all the general information about our block lottery here. 

For February we will be making Fractured Star blocks designed by Nancy Miller.  Here is a link to her tutorial. The blocks will be 12.5 inches unfinished.

I used HSTs rather than following Nancy's tutorial, however for directional fabrics I would suggest using this tutorial.  Blocks should use Kona Chartreuse paired with black and white fabrics.  If you make more than one block (three are allowed), please try to change up your fabric selections or positions so that no two blocks are identical.

Our February meeting will be Thursday, February 21st at 6:30 pm so you have lots of time to sew up your entries.  Don't forget to share a photo of your completed block in our flickr group! (It is always fun to see what you can win!)

  1. Hiya! Looking forward to making this (and suddenly thankful for that 1/2 yard of Kona chartreuse I got for Christmas!) I noticed this wasn't under the Block Lottery tab but thought a link there might be helpful too.

    1. Yeah, it has been a rough week with everyone still sick and trying to get ready for the dyeing class on Sat. I am a little behind! It is up now.

    2. One more thing... Does the chartreuse have to be the background or can we use black and white for that?

    3. I think you can arrange the colors any way you want. I also think you can use solid back or solid white for part of it if you want.
