Lately, quilting has taken a back seat to life . . . but the block lotto marches on and means I will always be doing something quilty, at least a few times a month ;-)
Today, I took the wonky shoo fly blocks I made for April off the wall and mailed them to the winners.
I walked the long way to the post office and took the straightest path home. I wasn't sure I was going to be able follow that path, when I came up a closed road and a bunch of people setting up for a film shoot.
They were letting pedestrians through–some, including me, couldn't resist taking a break to watch the crew in action from the sidewalk across the street.
That's a very tall ladder those guys are scrambling on, installing a camera at the top . . . and it's a very windy day.
I chatted with one woman who had the scoop. They're filming for a new show on Fox called The Good Guys, which will star Bradley Whitford and Colin Hanks.
What remains on my design wall are my lotto blocks for May. They're kind of abstract and very organic feeling–I'm calling them reeds.
Over the weekend, I blogged the directions for making the block and the guidelines for May Block Lotto–including a virtual quilt made from photos of the blocks made by the sneak peekers.
One of the lotto block makers noticed that this block looks like asparagus. I really like the abstract, organic feeling . . . and am thinking I need to make more, for a bigger tote for the farmer's market.
