Hi everyone! I am so excited to be joining the Riley Blake Block Challenge for the second year. I love being part of the Riley Blake designer team and these challenges have become a favorite of mine every year!
About the Challenge
Every year, Riley Blake Designs bring together some of its designers to create a wonderful sampler quilt.
Each new, FREE (!) block is released one at a time. The challenge officially started the first week of January and we are now about half-way through, and it's time for my block!
Meet Star Blossom
My contribution to this year's challenge is Star Blossom! When designing this block, I wanted to play around with the classic Sawtooth Star block, but make it... more. I wanted to change it up a bit while maintaining a recognizable sawtooth star. So, I added some fun sashing to break up the shape and broke up the center with half square triangles to add more movement.
For my sample block I used some of my favorite prints from my South Hill fabric collection. I adore how the blues and pinks go together.
