Moving it Forward Monday -- Another Block Lotto Block

Have you ever tried your luck at the Block Lotto?  It's a fun way to learn new skills, use up those scraps, meet new quilters, and possibly win blocks.  Sophie, of Sophie Junction come up with beautiful blocks and color schemes for the month.  We make blocks sometimes up to nine.  Each block is an entry into the "lotto" for that month.  At the end of the month someone does a random draw.  If you win, others mail their blocks to you.  If you don't, you mail your blocks to the winner(s).  It rocks!

Here's the block we are making this month.  It's called Dutchman's Puzzle.  You can find the info to make this block this month here.

 It doesn't matter where you live!  It's not just a USA thing.  I LOVE making a quilt with blocks from all over the world.  I was so excited when these blocks came in that I embroidered the first name of who made them and where they came from on each block for this quilt.  It makes it so special.

Eclipse, finished 3/6/12 -- one of my personal favorites that is always on the couch (if it's not taken)
Here's a close-up of some of the blocks:

Here's France, New Zeland, Maine, and Utah...  Yes, when you get so many blocks from different makers, they don't line up perfectly, but look at the beautiful effect in the quilt above!

I was so excited when the country of Oman was announced in the opening ceremonies of the Olympics.  I immediately showed my husband that I had something from Oman!

I see England, I see France... I see somebody's underpants -- Sorry, couldn't help myself.

There's another linky party at Em's Scrap Bag.  Moving it forward, Monday!

And of course I've linked my post as an entry into the Block Lotto.  Come play with us!
