4th of July Challenge Block

My local quilt shop has offered up a challenge to customers. They provided us with a 14″ square of either red, white or blue fabric (I chose the gorgeous batik red) and our job was to stitch a block (using our own stash for the other fabrics) which measured 12.5″ X 12.5″.

Everyone who turns in a block by July 5th gets 20% off of one item in the store…and is entered into the block contest. A winner will be chosen at the end of the contest period and will get ALL the blocks to make their own 4th of July quilt. Fun, right?

So here is the block that I made – it is a modification of a star burst block which I thought fit the theme perfectly.

Wish me luck!!

Please follow and like the blue thistle

    Oh well done! It reminds me of strawberry shortcake by the lake. I DO wish you luck!

    It looks great and completely fits the theme. Good luck!

  3. ooh, I like what you’ve done with that red batik fabric (and bonus for using up some of your stash so nicely). Good luck with the contest, and enjoy that 20% off item, whatever you choose!
