It’s Week 1 of the 2021 Riley Blake Designs Block Challenge and I am excited to get started on what I hope will be an amazing quilt! Today’s block is the Pinwheel Star Block, by Amanda Niederhauser @jedicraftgirl. The fabrics used in this block are Chive, Curry, Lodge Pole and Le Crème Confetti Cottons.
The block was released on Tuesday, but it took me a few days to complete. It was great seeing everyone’s first block posted on the group page, but also made me feel like I was out of place and not sure I made the right decision in starting this, but I’m not giving up yet.
The first block was a challenge and I had to use a seam ripper more than once, but in the end, I think my points look good and I was proud of myself for getting this once completed. I’m ready for the next one!
