She tried again this morning and it worked. Yay! Our total-so-far this month is 131 blocks–enough for THREE WINNERS!

I have a meeting tomorrow morning and won't be back until a little later to check for last minute entries before I finalize the list for the drawing and email it to Jill, one of our winners from last month who will be choosing our winners for June.
Welcome Marie! We're glad you found us and decided to play.
Marie's blocks and Rho's bring our total-so-far this month to 122 blocks. We're 10 blocks away from enough for a third winner . . . anyone else thinking of making any last minute blocks besides me?

If your name is on the list in the right side bar, you should have received sneak peek email from me this morning. If not, please let me know ASAP.
If you have entered blocks this month and your name hasn't been added to the list, also please let me know ASAP.
Thanks and also thanks for understanding while I struggle with my current dose of LIFE. I hope all the sneak peekers think the wait was worth it. I'm really excited about July block . . . tease, tease, tease ;-)
. . . speaking of delays, last month's winners should also have received email from me because I discovered last night that the stamped envelopes with their blocks were sitting on the table next to my door (oops.) They will be going out with me, the next time I venture out into the heat and bad air we are currently "enjoying" in Dallas.

I have received blocks from:
What wonderful quilters you all are, the blocks are perfect. I can't wait to put them all together.
Thanks a bunch,

I didn't hand piece my 3-D bowties, so you go right ahead and make yours. I did hand piece a different block but for some reason it turned out kind of wonky so I had to scrap that.!

Here are 4 blocks for this months lotto. The bowties are 3-D and I enjoyed making them. I'm not sure if I will have time to make more blocks before the end of the month. I'm going to the MN Quilt Show in Duluth and will be there for 5 days!
My apologies to the winners (and everyone) for my tardiness in both posting these photos and mailing the blocks. As I posted the other day on my own dusty, rarely updated-these-days blog, sophie junction, looking for work has become more time (and energy) consuming than any job I've every held and lately I often feel like I'm dancing as fast as I can ;-)

There are some GUIDELINES for your choice and they are a little complicated, so please read the rest of this message CAREFULLY.
First, for the fabrics, If you are unclear about what 30’s reproduction fabrics look like, check out this pool of photos on Flickr:
Note: If you do not have 30’s repros in your stash and do not want to add 30’s repros to your stash, but have fabrics that you believe will blend with these fabrics, feel free to use them–look for some example of no-30's fabrics that work pretty well.
For the blocks themselves:
- When choosing block patterns, please keep in mind that our overall theme for the year is traditional block patterns. Our winners next month should end up with a nice stack of traditional looking blocks for a nice 30’s sampler quilt.
- Pieced blocks must consist of at least 7 pieces. So, you cannot make a 4-patch or a snowball block, for example, but you can make a framed 4-patch, or a block made from 4 snowball blocks.
- Appliqué blocks may have fewer pieces. All edges must be turned under.
- You can make the same block pattern for up to three blocks, for example, three stamp basket blocks, three house blocks, three framed pinwheel blocks for the usual maximum of 9 blocks.
- The usual rules of NOT making identical blocks (same fabrics) apply. If you repeat fabrics, be sure to do it in a way so you don’t end up with matching blocks. We want the winner(s) to be able to make great scrappy album style 30’s repro quilts. Pleasee mix it up in your blocks and keep them nice and scrappy,
Here are the blocks made by sneek peekers Barbara, Debbie, Ginny and Sharon . . . how about a virtual row wall quilt:
