At the March guild meeting we announced a new swap . A swap like no other swap. It’s all or nothing ya’ll. It’s risky, I know…and typically, I’m not lucky.

I’m participating in the CLMQG block lottery.

  • The block lottery has rules and rules must be followed!
  • The block must be a 12-1/2″ unfinished.
  • It needs to be a star. Not just any star.
  • A polka dot star with a low volume background.

Any polka dot. Any low volume.

If I make 2 star blocks, I get two chances to win. If I make three blocks, I get three chances. And I bet, even if I made 10, I still probably wouldn’t win…like I said…not lucky. But I’m doing it anyway, because it’s fun!

My first block pattern was a freebie from Craftsy and I had enough different Kaffe dots to make it scrappy. Scrappy dots. One low volume print.

My second block was a really good tutorial from LaineyBugDesigns. This time I used a variety of orange dots for the star and mixed up all of my fun, low volume prints. I fussy cut the little “good works” birdie. Cute, huh? Orange dots. Scrappy low volume.

If you’re a member and need some quilty star inspiration to join in on the fun, check out my Pinterest board! I’ve collected a few for the girlies in the group.

I’m going to take my chances…are you?
