Hi everyone! I am so excited to be joining the Riley Blake Block Challenge for the third year. I love being part of the Riley Blake designer team and love taking part in these challenges!
About the Challenge
Every year, Riley Blake Designs bring together a group of designers to create blocks that are released one at a time. The challenge started last month, but there's still plenty of time to join in on the fun!
The 16 block patterns are being release once a week and will come together into a gorgeous sampler quilt by the end of May.
Meet Framed Star
My contribution to this year's challenge is Framed Star! Similarly to last year's block, I wanted to play around with the classic Sawtooth Star block, but add some fun twists.
I broke up the classic Sawtooth Star shape and then added a fun "back" frame that peeks out between the points of the star.
For my sample block I used some of my favorite prints from my Moonchild fabric collection. I adore how the blues and purples play off each other in the design.
Join the Challenge
To get the Framed Star block pattern, as well as all other block pattern release up until now, head over to the Riley Blake Designs website.
This is where you'll also get the new blocks released each week in the future. And make sure to share your block on Instagram using the hashtag so you can join in all the fun! #rbdblockchallenge!
