Wonderful to have Arianna with us this month!! Looks like she had a great time stitching with you. I hope she will come back again sometime soon

Hello ALL - When Eleanor moved Quilt in a Day from her garage to its present location, the party began! Sit back, relax, and watch as Eleanor makes positive and negative Nine-Patch blocks.
Summer is almost here sew I want to jump into some FUN Bright summertime colors for the Month of May along with a Favorite Beginner/Fast Block. So LET GO stash diving and if you can't find some FUN Fabrics then it will be a great time to go shopping!! ENJOY!!!!
What a GREAT Quilt you will have if THE WINNERS add some Corner triangles OR Set the blocks on a Diagonal adding 6.5" Squares in between. YOU just SEND the 9_Patches

* BLOCK: Nine Patch Party QIAD Block. El's 8"sq Block Method. 1 print/1 solid white. Instructions are a FABulous new way to make a Nine Patch that you just have to try!! WOWsers! or you can use the 2.5"x8" strip method. You will need (3) strips of 1 print and 1 Solid white. Your choice depending on Scraps.
You will be making sets of 2 from each 8" square. Block 1: Prints in the Corner; Block 2: White SOLID in the Corner. DO NOT sew them TOGETHER, PLEASE :) :)

Watch how you iron so that your blocks will lock seams when stitched together. Here is a picture of my backs

BLOCK SIZE: 6.5" blocks: This block uses El's 8"sq BRILLIANT Method (see video) or if you already have 2.5" strips you can cut (3) of them and (3) of your print at 2.5"x 8" strips.
* FABRICS: FUN Bright (Not Neon) Summertime PRINTS
1 color print with background White SOLID per block.
* BACKGROUND: Kona Cotton (JoAnns does carry this) or any Very GOOD Quality WHITE SOLID

*** TIP ALERT: Sew Strips from opposite ends to avoid arcing, Test your 1/4" seam allowance and lock your Seams. These tips will ensure the stitching of a great block. Measure after you stitch to check that your blocks are 6.5" and your center's measure 2" going top to bottom and side to side. ABOVE ALL - ENJOY !!!!!
You can make as many sets of 2's as you would like using many different bright summertime FUN colors - ENJOY!!!

* Place your Name Tag/Address label in the FRONT- UPPER LEFT - CORNER of each set of blocks (opposite blocks using the same fabric)
* Place ALL blocks in ONE Plastic Bag
* Send $2-3 to help with shipping blocks to winners.

WAYS to RECEIVE your WINNING tickets ...

Can the 9 patch prints be mixed with the white or do you want them all the same prints like the picture?

These will be fun and quick to make. ;)

Great question. Thanks for asking.

1 color blocks: One print with one background White SOLID per block.

You can use the fabric for multiple blocks sewing the 2 different styles.

The more variety of Prints we have the more FUN the quilts will be.

Here are some of Flo's WOnderful blocks - She made more of the blue but I wanted you to see to fabric so I made the picture less blocks, bigger pic. I couldn't make the picture lighter without washing out the white.

I'm going to have to wait until I can get some Solid white. I have white on white, but nothing solid. Lets hope I get in to town before to much time goes by. This looks like another nice scrappy quilt.

Hi all, It's lovely to see pictures of your blocks already made!

I already have the Kona white, but I've been rooting through Ebay to find some bright coloured fabrics and have happened to find some priced at less than £4 a metre for good quality end of line fabrics!!!
This is amazing when usually the shops here are asking for something in the region of £14 a metre here in the UK!!!
Wow!! I'm looking forward to it arriving then I can make some of these lovely 9 patch blocks!!

Teresa I love the method El uses!! She's 'sew' clever!!!! And I think it's great how you're using QIAD patterns for the lotto... Perfect!! There are 'sew' many super patterns and great ways to make the blocks!!

This is why I LOVE the lotto, it's like having our very own 'quilting workshop' each month where we learn a new block!! Even is we've make these blocks before, we're getting to learn a new easier method to make them!!

I'm sure I speak for everyone here at the lotto when I say "Thank you Teresa!! We're 'sew' lucky to have you as our host"!!

Happy stitching everyone!!
Love and hugs, Jacquie xxx

I will try this month. No open weekends but you never know. Biggest problem is no Kona white (or any other white for that matter) and no fabric shop within 25 miles! My Wal Mart doesn't sell Kona. Going online shopping!

Teresa, Top fabric is just something I had a little bit left over from a few years back. I really have no idea what the name of it was.

Hi All,
I've been at my Mom's with no cell service. So excited that I won in April (can't wait to make my quilt). I'm in for May, will go to Joanns and get some Kona. If we can stop running and field tripping long enough, I will do with my granddaughter (a budding quilter). Hope she and I can do together (she's only 9), but would be great fun!

Your welcome Lori. Hope you found some with using the 60% off. Silly me I should have purchased more.

Linda H - I love the moments when there is no cell service. More time to be with the ones you love. Less time on the phone.
Welcome back and now have some Happy stitching with your Granddaughter on some May blocks. 9yrs old is a great age to start sewing.

Just heard from Linda S who has been a busy stitcher enjoying making her blocks - YEA!!! Wonder what they look like???? I know they will be very pretty!!!!

I didn't, but I already had Kona white. It's one I always have on hand. I made a couple sets today. It's was fun to make a simple block again. I will make a few more before sending them off. Using up my scraps. Lori
