March guild meeting

It has already been more than a week since the March meeting of my local quilt guild. But I made some blocks for the block lotto held that evening that I've been meaning to share.

Block lotto is an optional activity for guild members. We are each given a piece of fabric and a theme and we make blocks (supplementing the given fabric with our own). All of the blocks are collected and then grouped into sets. For every block one makes, one receives a ticket. Over the course of the meeting, there are drawings and winners receive a set of blocks.

This month, the themes were '30s and pinwheels and 8.5" blocks. I actually managed to make three!

Pinwheel blocks are so fun to make, I couldn't help myself.

Alas, I was not a winner this month. But there's always next time!


  1. What a fun game! I would have loved to win a stack of 30's pinwheels.

  2. I love doing pinwheels too. Yours look great!

  3. Very cool, my favorite is the one on the left.

  4. Oh how fun! These are great blocks. I'm actually pulling purple and yellow/gold fabrics from my stash for a project right now! The block on the right is one of my all-time favorites.

  5. Some lucky person won some really great blocks.
