It’s Week 2 in in the Riley Blake Mystery Quilt along and that means it’s my turn! This is my Shining Star Block – RBD Block Challenge!
Riley Blake is hosting a new mystery sew along! The RBD Block Challenge just kicked off last week so there is plenty of time to dive in! Every week for next few months (except the last week of the month) Riley Blake will be releasing a different quilt block designed by a different Riley Blake Designer! At the end of the challenge they will release the layout so you can put all your gorgeous blocks together!
Riley Blake is showing the blocks made up in their new Confetti Cotton solids and you can find kits made up in some stores. Several of the designers are sewing along as well, all in different collections. It’s so fun to see the blocks made up in all different fabrics.
This week it is my turn!
Shining Star Block – RBD Block Challenge
My block is called the Shining Star! It has a star “floating” in the center. I love that you can have fun fussy cutting this one, or adding decorative stitching around the star!
I added some Sashiko stitching around my center star, I think it really sets it off! I am adding stitching to all my blocks with my Baby Lock Sashiko machine.
For my fabrics, I’m using my new Stardust collection that comes out next month. I’m sewing with digital yardage for now, until I get my actual prints. I’ll redo these early blocks when I do, the real fabrics will be a bit more vibrant, but I don’t mind. I can use these for cute pillows!
I can’t wait to see your versions of the Shining Star Block! You can share your blocks in the RBD Challenge Facebook Group and on Instagram with the #rbdblockchallenge hashtag.
