    Lotto blocks

    I won a January on-line forum lotto and received 23 beautiful blocks. I made one more and sewed them together. A couple of the blocks had red in them, so I decided to add a thin red inner border and then border and bind it in black. Although I would never have chosen this pattern myself, I really love this quilt. For having about 10-12 contributors, I think it came out quite cohesive. And it reminds me of my on-line friends.

    Great way to get ready-made blocks and the colors are wonderful. I just finished a red, white, and black quilt top for one of my nephew's graduation gifts. I need to sandwich and quilt it yet - my least favorite part of the process.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Really great quilt. No one would guess that it had been made from squares from so many people. You did a marvelous job of pulling it together. The red is perfect as you used it. Good fun.
