January Block Lotto
I joined the Block Lotto in August of last year, and have had fun making the blocks each month. This year starts a year of “liberated blocks.” January’s block is called Tic-Tac-Toe. Sophie posted the instructions here. I made the first few as she instructed, starting with a 10 inch square of background and making cuts to it. After four blocks, I ran out of WOW fabric. I'm not supposed to be spending any money on quilt stuff and I was NOT going to load up four kids and go to JoAnn’s for ½ yard of fabric, so I devised a scrappy method. It worked, and I took pictures, so I’m going to attempt to write a tutorial. After lunch. When they’re all supposed to be resting.
