It's a Little Bit Ironic ...

June Bullseye Blocks for my graduated samplerA funny thing happened after I decided to align the Block Lotto blocks and their fabric guidelines with the Rainbow Scraps Challenge ... I stopped regularly checking in and linking with the Scraphapppy Saturday posts. It has nothing to do with one or the other ... just me and my life struggles.

I'm trying to get back in the habit, so I thought to share my progress with my scrappy rainbow sampler, which will be made from this year's Block Lotto block patterns with a setting of lots of scrappy rectangles.

This is June's Improv Bullseye block, surrounded by some of the green and aqua/turquoise/teal rectangles that will surround it in the quilt.

Each of the blank squares in the drawing is filled with 4 of the monthly block. I have made all the blocks so far this year ... but need to play catch-up on cutting the setting rectangles.


I am itching to pull out all the cut rectangles and blocks and throw them on my design wall to get a better idea of how this quilt will look ... but at the moment, the Lemoyne star blocks I blogged about earlier this week are parked there, in their very specific order and this dyslexic quilter is a little afraid to take them down until they are firmly sewn together ...

I know a few quilters are also quilting along and making this sampler. You can find the basics for this quilt and the Old MacDonald's Mystery Sampler (#OMMS) here:

I've seen Block Lotto like the flowers here and there, so thanks for helping me to the source patterns. Your June block is a real winner in the teals. Thanks for stopping in at RSC16 today.

All of your blocks are great and I love your setting plans! I saw this month's bullseye block on someone else's blog, too, and now I want to try it myself!

Получается очень интересно! Сложные блоки, гармоничная цветовая гамма!

I've fallen behind on a couple of months for the other sampler, but I'll either catch up, or my sampler will be different. =) I did enjoy the bull's eye blocks, though. I plan to make some more when Moira is here this week. We're sewing on Wednesday!
