Quilting is something I have always wanted to do, but always made excuses for not really getting into it and accomplishing something. I started two or three quilts back in the 80’s, but never finished them. My Granny used to quilt by hand, and she made some beautiful quilts.
I saw this block challenge by Riley Blake Designs and decided now was as good a time as any to start and it’s designed so that you make one block a week, so in my mind it doesn’t seem as daunting and maybe this time I can make it until the end.
The challenge will run for 16 weeks, starting February 2nd through June 22nd. A new block will come out each week except for the last week of the month. I do not see where they have posted a pic of what the finished quilt will look like, so there is no telling what I am getting myself into. Each block will be 10″ finished size and there will be 19 different colors within the quilt.
Since I’m not sure about fabrics and designs I decided to go with the Confetti Cotton fabrics that were recommended and ordered all the required fabrics at one time online. My fabrics are supposed to be everything that I need to the top including sashing, binding and corner stones. Once I’m done and I see how it all comes together I’ll decide if I want to buy the backing and have it quilted or not.
