Pinwheel Star Block - RBD Block Challenge, Block 1

It is week one of the RBD Block Challenge.

The first block is the Pinwheel Star Block, which was designed by Amanda Niederhauser or you might know her better as @jedicraftgirl.

It was my first time fussy cutting these little dancers. And of course when I finished I did have one of those lightbulb moments when I realised I could have made it easier for myself.

So this year I am trying to use my fabric stash. Really and truly, just ask my husband how the credit card is this year.

This fabric bundle I am going to use is the Wintergreen Riley Blake Blends, curated by the Fat Quarter Shop. Unfortunately there are none currently available but some of the individual fabrics are.

To explain a little more about the Riley Blake Designs Block Challenge.

This year Riley Blake Design is hosting their block challenge again.

And each block is part of the Riley Blake Design Mystery Quilt.


Riley Blake Designs Block Challenge 2021


The challenge will have 16 blocks. The blocks are designed by the Riley Blake designers. Each Tuesday of the month a new block will be revealed, except for the last week of the month when it is a catch up week. The blocks for the project will work together to make a quilt sampler at the end of the 16 weeks.

The project will be running from 2nd February until 22nd June, so a great pace to join in at anytime.

If you are interested to join the challenge but have not yet started, here is a link to the patterns - click here
