The Lotto Block for August is called Nine O'Clock.
We'll be making this block in the summery color combination of bright yellow sunshine and clear blue skies on a crisp WOW background.
Referring to Marcia Hohn's original pattern on the Quilter's Cache site for color placement:
Color 1: tone-on-tone or print fabric that reads as yellow or is a yellow/white or yellow/blue/white print
Color 2: tone-on-tone or print fabric that reads as any shade of blue
Color 3 (background): is white-on-white (WOW)
This block really goes quite quickly and is easily made from any 10" squares you may have collected through swaps. When I was making the sample, before I knew it, I'd two more:
The yellow in the block on the left is my first attempt at shibori hand dye; the blue and yellow print in the block on the right is fussy cut from a mostly blue fabric with suns and moons and clouds. I used a range of blue prints in my blocks to add variety to the scrappy blocks this month's winner(s) will receive.
