RBD Block Challenge 2023 - Block 15

We are nearing the end of the Riley Blake Designs Block Challenge, and this week we are already on Block 15! This block has endless possibilities with color blocking and you will have so much fun sewing it together. Don't forget to use the hashtag #RBDBlockChallenge.



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 began on (January 3rd) and will be ending May 23rd with the finishing instructions! 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 RBD Block Challenge around the globe!

I made mine using a combination of my Forest Friends fabric and some coordinating RBD 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 2022 #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 2023!



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