BlockLotto - July 2010 - FireworksDirections for making the block:
Photos of Examples:
I again got a sneak preview for the BlockLotto pattern - I actually finished these the last week of June - but am on my honor to not spill the beans on the pattern before Sophie publishes the pattern on the BlockLotto blog so am just now releasing photos of my blocks.
It wasn't until Sophie posted the directions that I realized that she was thinking fireworks - what a clever lady she is! On other sites this is referred to as * asterisks * - but Sophie realized also that *'s have only three bars....
The requirements were very dark background - bold color - end up 8.5 inch square.
First I did one block:
I did four blocks - then four more and then took these photos after adding the second and third bars...
Fun block to make. I can see lots of possible variations too. Some of these look like dragon flys instead of fire works...
I showed the blocks to A's friend (Ma) - she prefers the ones that are less wonky... (She really liked the baskets for June 2010 though!)
