Sweetheart Block - RBD Block Challenge 2022

Sweetheart Block - RBD Block Challenge 2022 Janelle of Dotty and Grace

So each week I say I am excited about this challenge and this week was no exception. The designer this week was Bev of Flamingo Toes - and she definitely set us up for a challenge! 

This is my version of the Block 2 of the RBD Block Challenge for 2022!

It is the Sweetheart Block, which was designed by Beverly McCullough of Flamingo Toes!

For my fabric choice this time, I am using the Notting Hill collection from Amy Smart of @DiaryofaQuilter. I am teaming my blocks with Kona Cotton Lapis from Robert Kaufman

This free quilt block pattern is a fun way to experiment with the fabrics and colours to see how the blocks come together.
