Lotto Winnings!

I was one of three winners for the June baskets.  The Mail Lady was kind to me today and brought lots of blocks.  I took my new blocks to the sewing room and they shouted that they wanted to be joined with some bright blocks I'd been sewing yesterday. I added a border to make the 6.5 inch blocks to 6.5 x 8.5. This is how some of them look! I'm saving some of the more subdued ones for the other idea I had, but this is going to work. I'm thinking some kind of black/white sashing and little red squares inbetween that--dunno for sure, but these brights are working together, I think! There's going to be 2 quilts from these blocks--and they will be so-o-o different! The "holes" are where I still need to make some crumb blocks

What is the pale green square partially on top of the basket in the top row, right end?

Funny! That's a post it note with the name of a contributor. So far, I've only received 18 of 52, so I won't be sewing them together just yet. I was so anxious to try them out and take a picture, I forgot about it!

Looking bright and funky so far and I'm loving the sound of your planned sashing :)
