I'm so excited to be sewing along with the 2024 RBD Block Challenge! It's such a fun way to prioritize sewing each week, connect with other quilters, and play with fabric!
It's Week 2! This week's block is called "Sparkle and Shine" by Beverly McCullough. I love how this block radiates color from the center. This block uses half-square triangles with a twist to get the fun effect.
I'm sewing along using fabric from my upcoming To Grandmothers House Fabric Collection with Riley Blake Designs! This fabric collection (in stores February 2024) has sweet colors, cute prints, and lots of fussy-cutting fun! It was so fun choosing reds and pinks to get the ombre effect across my block. And isn't that text print just darling?
I can't wait to follow along with everyone's blocks! It's going to be such an inspirational few months. I hope you join in! Follow me on social media @sewastory_jenniferlong on Instagram and Facebook, so we can connect more.
I'll see you next week for Block 3!

To Grandmother's House Fabric
Do you love this fabric? My To Grandmother's House fabric collection is coming February 2024 and we have so much fun planned!
Here's a sneak peek at one of the quilt patterns I'll be releasing that use To Grandmother's House! It's called Little Red and showcases the fairytale character walking through a woods of trees and mushrooms. You'll love sewing her! Make sure to sign up for my newsletter at the bottom of this page to be the first to know when the patterns are released (plus, more fun content, discounts, and more!)
