I was really excited to try out a quilt block challenge with Riley Blake Designs! Quilt block challenges are a great way to interact with other quilters and get some encouragement as you sew. Anyone can join! See the link below!
This block has some great techniques! One is SNF – or sew and flip. This isn’t a new quilting technique, and many probably know it. But if I saw just SNF in a pattern, I’d have to look it up, in other words, I sure didn’t know the acronym for it!
You simply mark a diagonal (or use seam tape on your plate), lay the block on the side the pattern states, and sew the diagonal line. Trim the allowance. Flip and iron.
I wasn’t sure about my colors at first but loved the bright and cheery layout. My plan is to do the first 4 challenge blocks in these colors and finish it vertically or in a square to hang. I want to mix it up and make a few mini quilts rather than one large one. I’ll put all my instructions here!
