What is a lotto block you ask? Every month we are given a block or blocks and you make it and bring it back to the 1st meeting of the month. We hang your block on the wall, you sign a slip and enter a drawing for the entire wall of blocks. If you are drawn...walaa! you have an instant quilt! If you didn't get a pattern at the meeting you can print them from the links below. It's a ton of fun and if  you are lucky enough to win you have a great start on a new quilt!This may help you stretch your skills to try something you haven't made before so HAPPY STITCHING!

2018 Sew Along
Pleasantville by Kimberly Einmo

Starting with the first meeting in January we will be starting a new Sew Along for the New Year. The quilt is called Pleasantville, designed by Kimberly Einmo. It is a row by row quilt with a variety of blocks in different sizes. The finished size of the quilt is 76” x 88”. BUT, if you are interested in something a little smaller, Ginger is calculating the measurements for a miniature of the original. The miniature size will finish at approximately 38” x 44”. Each month the pattern, including the miniature measurements, will be emailed to the participants. The Final row will be emailed in June with the final assembly instructions in September. We are planning for a reveal at the first meeting in November. Kimberly Einmo gave her personal approval of this sew along and is excited to see the finished quilts. (Due to copyright laws, and the designer’s have requested the patterns not to be posted on the guild’s website.) Ginger Marshall and Renee Miles are chairing and co-chairing this sew along, so if you would like to be added as a participant, or have any questions you can e-mail either one of them.
