August Block Lotto

Image result for watermelon slice

This block is for everybody who loves to use up scraps, make easy blocks, 2.5" squares, pink and green, a chance to win, and watermelon.  That should cover most everybody, shouldn't it?


The above photo shows two of the same 12.5" block, in slightly different colour palettes. 

Fabric for this block is tone on tone or solids in the noted colours, pink, black, green, and white.

Your will need to cut 2.5" squares of :

-8 green
-6 white
-2 black
-20 pink


 
Lay out your squares to match the photo. If you look at the top photo of the completed light and dark pink blocks, you will notice that the black (seed) squares are not in the same spots.  This is intentional.  When you lay out your squares, place the black ones wherever you like amongst the pink to give some randomness to the blocks.
 
From there it is straight forward sewing.  I made four 9 patches first, then put them together.

At first I quite liked the pastel version




But after some queries, I decided to make a brighter version, and liked it even better. Use whatever shades of the designated colours you like.


Completed block is 12.5" square, unfinished.

One block equals 1 ticket, so make one, make two, make an entire melon!  Have fun.
