I was eligible for the Block Lotto sneak peek and got right to work on the June blocks.
The goal was a simple block in a tight color palette of green, blue and purple. When I went to pull fabrics, I grabbed a light, medium and dark of each color.
Then I cut the pieces and sorted them out so each block would have 1 light, 1 medium and 1 dark AND 1 green, 1 blue and 1 purple. The sewing went very quickly! I think these simple blocks can make a very effective, stash-busting charity quilt.
Here's the dark green from the year 2000! It is definitely time to use this one up.
