October Block Lotto: Autumn Pick-Up Sticks

pickupsticks1Just because we don’t get a lot of fall foliage here in Southern California doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy a little seasonal color. Your local quilt shop is full of splendid autumn color ready for your sewing pleasure.

October’s Block Lotto is Autumn Pick-Up Sticks, a quick and easy fun modern quilt block. You can find the tutorial on the Empire Quilt Guild of NYC’s blog. Our color palette is bright red, orange, and yellow sticks on a white or off-white background.

  1. Each block you make and bring to the October meeting gets you one entry in the lotto. If you aren’t able to be there, you can send your blocks to the meeting with a friend. You also have the option to donate one or more blocks for charity quilts.
  2. We’ll hold a drawing for those who entered and the winner gets all the blocks. If there are enough entries, IEMQG reserves the right to split the blocks between more than one winner. Donated blocks get you an entry for special prize drawings that we will hold randomly.
  3. You do not need to be present to win.
  4. Winners must bring a completed quilt (or other project) to Sew & Tell in order to be eligible to win again, but may still contribute to the block pool each month.

Have fun and good luck!
