The 6 x 8 inch (finished) blocks theme for this swap is .. Under the Sea .... and the borders to be a light blue tone on tone ... so this could be fish ... shells .. coral .. mermaids ... i think you get the idea ... can't wait to see what you all come up with ... the block centres may be a charm square .. appliqued .. embroidered or paper pieced .. that bit is your personal choice ... don't rush them and remember to make something you would love to receive ...

You must have your photos posted no later than midnight March 31st ... please post all photos in the gallery which you will find at the bottom of the home page ...

Remember .. no photo .. no entry ... ... no entry .. no chance to win ...

also please note ... we may have some international members joining in this swap .. which means you must be prepared to mail overseas .. the cost of this to the US would be between $2.35 and $4.70 ... depending on your fabrics and packaging .. i have sent similar in a plain envelope and can more often than not get it under the 50 grams and can send it for $2.35 ... you will need to fill out a customs declaration for it also ...

but you may not have to worry about the postage .. cos you may be the winner .. which means you get to keep yours and get a whole lot of squishies in the mail ... woohoo....

Winners will announced on the 1st of the next month .... I will contact the winner to get a snail mail address and then will let you all know what that is ... via email ...

it will be lovely to have you all join in ... and don't forget to have lots of fun picking out your fabrics ..... flower

Thank you all, we enter these things hoping to win but never expecting to and it is such a lovely surprise if we do! I did say I had been planning what to do with them if I won, but what I didn't say was - I have more than one plan! Laughing Maybe, in the spirit of things, I will number my plans, put them into a hat and draw out the winner?

Because I was only dreaming of winning the blocks, I haven't gone past planning what I would do with them and so I have not thought of a theme or colour scheme for the next swap. I will be back in half an hour ... watch this space please?

After much deliberation, I have chosen:

Theme: In My Garden
Borders to be: any shade of green


After the unexpected pleasure of winning the blocks today, I found it to be a tad overwhelming to have to choose a theme and colour on the spot! So, I thought I would play it 'safe'. Hope you all approve?

(Note to self (insert your name here): Make a list of themes and colours in advance in case I (insert your name here) am lucky enough to win the Block Lotto next! That way, the winner will have a theme and colour ready to post!!)

Just an update on my "Under the Sea" lotto block winnings:

These lovely blocks have been waiting patiently and "look at me" every time I open the craft cupboard and I have FINALLY come up with a plan for them. There is to be a local sew-in weekend happening in September to make quilts for children in need and if I make 3 more blocks I will have enough blocks to make 2 quilts the size the organisers specified (including sashings and borders of course). I am going to make one each for a boy and a girl. 

The girl's quilt will feature the cute embroidered mermaid block and paper pieced dolphin made by Jan. 

I am in the process of choosing fabric for sashing and borders.

You can see all the blocks here to remind yourself what they looked like:
