Blotto: Block Lottery

Thank you to our Blotto Coordinator: Gwen JeSchonek

General Information about Blotto (short for Block Lottery):
 Participate as little or as much as you want—but we hope to inspire you to sew a few
blocks and take a chance of winning more!
 Make one or more of the presented blocks, following the design, theme, and color
palette presented, and bring them to the designated meeting to display, which will
include the drawing.
 Enter your name in the drawing for each block you bring—the more blocks you make,
of course, the greater the odds for winning!
 One name will be selected at each drawing and that person receives all the blocks
brought to the meeting.

“Symphony of Stars”

Blotto Schedule for 2021-2022:

Block #2 – Rainbow 8-Point Star

Drawings: January 24 (evening) and February 1 (afternoon)

This 8-point star block uses 12 half-square triangles (HSTs) and four plain squares arranged to resemble a much more difficult block, the LeMoyne star, that uses “y” seams. The directions use squares to make the half square triangles, and thus you have enough HSTs to make two blocks for two entries! But, of course, you can make even more!

Block #1 – Woven Star

Presentation: October 25 (evening) & November 2 (afternoon)

Drawing: November 22 (evening)
