2021 RBD Block Challenge – Week 13

It’s Week 13 of the RBD Block Challenge and as much as I have enjoyed learning everything that I have, I am ready for this challenge to be over. It’s probably due to the fact that I have so many other projects I want to start, and I’m scared to start too many at one time and end up with a lot of unfinished quilt tops.

This week’s block is called the Dizzy Pinwheel block and is brought to us by Lauren Brewer. Lauren made her block featuring fabric from her Strawberry Jam Collection. You can view her block on the Riley Blake Blog or follow her on Instagram @laurnebrewerdesign.

My version of the Dizzy Pinwheel quilt block features an earthy color palette of Moss, Avocado, and Le Creme Confetti Cottons.

2021 RBD Block Challenge – Week 12

It’s Week 12 of the RBD Block Challenge and I can’t say enough good things about this challenge as it has been a wonderful experience thus far. It has inspired me to reach beyond what I think I’m capable of and really develop my quilting skills.

This week’s block is called the Nine Patch Star block brought to us by Gerri Robinson. Gerri’s featured block was designed using fabric from her Gem Stones Brights collection. You can follow her on Instagram @plantedseeddesigns for more project ideas featuring her fabrics.

I used the recommended classic color palette of Oxford Blue and Le Creme Confetti Cottons for my block.

2021 RBD Block Challenge – Week 11

It’s Week 11 of the RBD Block Challenge and things changed up a little bit as the original block for weeks 11 and 12 were switched up. The RBD blog posts marks all the updates so if you are tuning into this at a later date everything should be updated accordingly.

This week’s block is titled the Glint block and is brought to us by Melissa Mortenson of Polka Dot Chair. You can follow Melissa on Instagram @polkadotchair  to see project ideas as well as how she completed her block this week by using fabric from her brand new Spooky Hollow collection.

My fabric choices were more earthly colors, Cape Verde, Swamp, Moss and Le Creme Confetti Cottons.

2021 RBD Block Challenge – Week 10

It’s Week 10 of the RBD Block Challenge and I’m excited to share another completed block. This week’s block is called the Lady of the Lake block and was provided by Amanda Castor of Material Girl Quilts. There were only two fabrics used in this block. Amanda’s block featured fabrics from her Winterland collection, Snowflakes and Flurries while I chose Oceanside and Le Creme Confetti Cottons.

Not all of my points match up, but I am still proud of how these blocks keep turning out and looking forward to seeing the finished project.

To view Amanda’s block and more of her projects you can find her on Instagram @materialgirlquilts.

2021 RBD Block Challenge – Week 9

It’s Week 9 of the RBD Block Challenge and I think this was the hardest block thus far. I know I had to use the seam ripper again. However, I feel like I have learned a lot from this experience and am looking forward to what the finished product will look like once all these blocks go together.

This week’s block is called the Sugar Candy Block and was brought to us by Jill Finley. Jill shows two blocks on the Riley Blake blog, both of which feature fabrics from her new released Grove collection. You can follow Jill on Instagram @jilliystudio.

The colors in my block include Pebble, Bark and Le Crème.
