Quilting tidbits

First of all, I have to tell you, that I am incredibly lucky.  I actually won the Block Lotto again this month.  Two months in a row!  That is amazing. In April, 50 quilters made 372 Modern Clover blocks–enough for eight winners and one of those winners was me!  Aren't these little flower blocks cute?  The block was designed by one of my cyber-quilting friends, Kate.  She plays Block Lotto but she also is the brains behind my Stay-at-home-Robin.  I will be setting these on point, and I think I'll space them with small borders.  Very exciting.

This is the block for May.  They're calling it pineapple blossom.  It's scrappy but if you look closely, every block has two grey squares and two yellow or gold squares.  Those are the unifying colors that every quilter will be using.  They make for a subtle and warm constant that I think will be great.  I'll be donating my blocks this month as I have both the disappearing 4 patch and now the modern clover quilts to finish.

Oh boy!
