i have had a request from one of our swappers ...


could everyone please follow the pattern ... which has ... a 4 1/2 inch centre square ... 2 x 2 1/2 inch whoops !!! two 2 1/2 inch x 4 1/2 inch strips and two 2 1/2 inch x 8 1/2 inch strips ...

apparently some are arriving with four 2 1/2 inch x 6 1/2 inch strips ...


so to make all the blocks uniform ... please follow the cutting instructions ...

thanks everyone ..

I am guilty as charged! Embarassed I am sorry if this has upset anyone and if that person would like to personal message me regarding which swap they won I will remake that person's blocks again as needed.

the lotto blocks should be 4 1/2 centres and 2 1/2 X 4 1/2 borders. You need the borders to be 2 1/2 to give the 1/4 inch seams. that way they work out. When I do mine I cut the borders at 3 X 4 1/2 that way I can be sure they will be wide enough then I cut them down to 8 1/2X8 1/2 inches. Hope that all made sense.

Cheers Ann

perfectly Annie .... and great idea about the extra wide strips .. i seem to have the tiniest bit to trim off when mine are done .. i would rather have more than less ...

i have fixed the top post ... seems i didn't get it too right at all ... haha

ok, I love that idea of making the border bigger and cutting back to size!
