I realize that I might be the only person who thinks of the Block Lotto this way. & I admit that I have been known to start out thinking this way & then sort of fallen off the....wagon? This is not the first time I have won Block Lotto. It is not even the second time I have won. It would be the fourth or fifth time I won except that once (or twice, I forget), I had donated my blocks & they got scrambled in & I won! But I threw them back.
Flash back to a completely different situation. Well, not completely different, it is still a quilting situation. My first Bird Trap block quilt top is ALMOST finished. Flash further back: I made so many bird trap bocks & I get a lot of inquiries about the swao but notso many commitments I thought maybe, just maybe a completed op would show what potential the block has & then
Then this month's Block Lotto block arrived in my mailbox & I want it. I don't necessarily want to win, I just want to keep my own. So I made two for the swap & uhm a dozen in the wrong size(s) & wrong color(s) so I guess they just don't count. Guess I will have to keep them. Leaving my debt to the Block Lotto society hovering at -18.
