Here are my blocks for the Block Lotto this month. We were supposed to do the block of our choice that's a heart or has a heart in it, using pink, cream, orange and grey. Very Modern Quilting colors! I've always disliked orange and pink, especially together, but these new citrus-y oranges are winning me over. And I think they look OK with the pink too, although pink still isn't my fave. Hmmm, funny how your taste changes over the years, isn't it? I'm really liking these blocks!
The top block is from one of my old Debbie Mumm books, and the second one is using some pink/heart fabric I've had for quite a while in the center. It's not really as crooked as it looks here - I just can't seem to get a straight photo of it. These are all I'm doing this month, and so my fingers are crossed that maybe I'll win in spite of not making enough to have more chances.
Here is the latest photo of my Halloween trips - 15 blocks now! I only need 5 more - one more column - and I have 2 in the works and another one to fix. I had cut one of the strips at 3 1/2 inches instead of 3 and didn't notice until I started sewing it together. So, a little time with my seam ripper will be in order this evening.
Now I'm down to picking fabrics carefully to get the color balance I want (hopefully!) and to include my favorite fabrics. I've decided this needs more green, for a start, so I found and cut more today. I've getting excited about this, and am already thinking of what to do for the border and the back. I'm hoping I can finish this by the end of the week.
Back to the Quilt Studio while DH fixes Ginger Chicken and pot stickers for dinner. Yum!
P.S. When did Blogger change the look of the pop-up comment form?? Weird - it must have been overnight. It just kinda blew my mind. LOL!
