HI ALL - Last December I asked you to give me ideas for this year.
This is what I have. Please ADD on to the LIST if you have any others.

There are blocks that I would LOVE to make BUT I don't know if you have the RULERS to make them like the Honeycomb. Can you tell me what rulers you have and what blocks would be easy for you to make.
Looking forward to hearing your news.

Civil War era (quilter's choice) Civil War/1800 reproduction fabrics.
1930's fabrics
Eleanor's Egg Money Quilts
Tennessee Waltz
Autumn at the Whitehouse (Fall block)
Dutch Windmills
Hearts and Gizzards
El's Honeycomb
Scrappy Dresden plate (what month)

Dear DEER!
Teresa, I have so many rulers I am almost sure that any block you choose I can utilize one of them to work.
My goal this year..like EVERY year๐Ÿ™„..is to use the fabric I have and not buy more.

I would LOVE to see a scrappy 36 square block. I think it would be neat to use up scraps and would be fun to put together either with sashing or alone. I think maybe we make them a charm block..or no more than 2 or 3 of the same fabric in the block..and if need be use solids but minimally. I know you are going to be surprised to hear this from me but no white, cream, beige OR black can be used as solids...just an old fashioned 36 patch using 2.5" squares...

Those are my thoughts..

It was hard to miss last month's Lotto...I almost joined...probably good I didn't ..

Anyway...I think I'm ready for March!...Bring. It. On!

((((Hugs)))) Sonya

Dear DEER!
Oh I just thought of something else...
Thinking outside the box..what about cathedral windows made with green printed fabrics and the center prints in lovely prints for the flowers...around these parts we call that a "secret garden" Quilt..(there would be some handwork, I think...to sew the petals back..I have seen it done by machine (the petals) but I have always done the petals by hand.

Also, what about a yo-yo Lotto?...Ok..my brain needs rest now๐Ÿ™„.

((((Hugs)))) Sonya

I don't have a lot of special rulers. Some of Eleanor's, like the flying geese and fussy cut, etc. Guess I should get them out and take inventory. I also bought some diamond/triangle rulers years ago. Hmm... I really should take note.
Will do that later today, after church.

I have a few of QIAD rulers. I did make a list. I figure if the pattern requires a special ruler that I don't have, then I would just sit that one out. No big deal.
Sometimes you still can make the block, just harder to do without special ruler like the Day and Night quilt I made last year.

Civil war sounds fun. I don't think we've ever done that as a lotto block.

I have most rulers and Eleanor's books.
