RBD Block Challenge - Block 1

I am so excited to be joining in the Riley Blake Designs Block Challenge this year, not only as a participant but also a designer!


You are invited to join myself and 15 other Riley Blake Design designers as we share 16 NEW and exciting 10" quilt blocks! It is fun and free and the final quilt is a surprise!!!


We are starting today (January 4th) and ending May 17th! Every Tuesday, a NEW block pattern is released, except the last Tuesday of the month when we take a moment to catch up, get inspired and really enjoy all the awesome work happening on the Block Challenge around the globe!

Block 1: Daisy Chain by Lori Holt


Block 1 of the #RBDBlockChallenge is designed by Lori Holt of Bee in My Bonnet and is called the Daisy Chain.


You can dowload the FREE block pattern HERE.



I made mine using a combination of a new RBD fabric line called Hibiscus and some coordinating Confetti Cottons (see my fabric list at the bottom of this post).



Last year I wanted to add some hand stitching to my blocks and did some outline hand stitching in my background fabrics on my 2021 #rbdblockchallenge blocks. I did this BEFORE I assembled the blocks into the final quilt and before I quilted it. I just love the hand look it gives the blocks and so I decided to do this again in 2022!



Quilting together is all about community, friendship and creativity. I hope you can join us and share your progress.
