Block lotto blocks

So, here are ten finished blocks for the March block lotto - five lean left and five lean right. I actually have started some more of these for myself (great way to use up scraps, and I had lots of stuff out, ready, anyway).

Just for your interest, I thought I'd show what the blocks look like before and after being trimmed...

They were approximately 12" squares before I trimmed them - but as you can see, the edges aren't necessarily straight or even - it doesn't matter, really. I trimmed them to 9" (finished) for the lotto. The ones I do for myself, I might trim a little less - perhaps to 10". It will mean I can only lean them over gently, but that's ok, they will still be lovely blocks and make a nice baby quilt or lap quilt (depending on how many blocks I do). Look for more tomorrow, as I am hoping that one of my Mother's Day presents will be some sewing time!

Interesting. I liked the before ones, but the trimmed "leaning" ones are just awesome. Thanks for sharing that trick. I will add it to my bag!
