Happy July everyone! We are taking it summer-easy with the next block lotto challenge: Bijou Lovely Design’s stash-busting, stripy wonders.
Dig through your leftover strips, chain-piece (always!), and the more blocks you make, then the more you can mix & match the sides. The more blocks you enter, the more chances you have to win the whole block lotto shebang at the August VMQG meeting. And, they are a good sized block, so I’m hoping the winner will have enough to get a bed-sized quilt out of this one.
Quick instructions: Sew your strips together until you have a piece big enough that it can be trimmed to a 12” square. Cut on the diagonal. Sew mismatched sides back together. Voila! Done! Repeat!

Just sayin’: I got a bit improv with some of my strips and found these blocks look better when the strips are the same width across.
