Made and Quilted with love

The Block Lotto members got together and secretly made a quilt for the Lotto's creator, Sophie, as a way to say Thank You.

I have enjoyed being part of this group very much and had no hesitation in making a block for this special project.

The group members were asked to contribute blocks selected from a past Block Lotto block.  We were to follow the color rules of the original Block Lotto block, but size it to 10".

I made a 10" version of the Violet blocks we made for the August 2011 Lotto. 

The quilt has been received, so now I can post about it ;-)

Here is a pic of the quilt just before it was posted to Sophie
My block is on the right edge, 4th row ;-)

I cannot get over just how great it looks - it has exceeded my expectations.  The quilt was organized by Laura and quilted by Cathy S - they did an awesome job with getting this together so quickly.

Sophie has posted a pic of it on her red sofa HERE
If you are interested in the Block Lotto, the January block complete with instructions can be found here.

I have been extremely lucky with the Block Lotto Gods smiling on me and I have won 3 times.  Making quilts out of these winnings is officially on my 2012 TO DO LIST ;-).

Thank you for visiting my blog today - I hope you have a good day. 
Remember, any day doing something you love makes it a good day ;-) 
Doing what you like is freedom. Liking what you do is happiness.
