Have you tried the Big Block Challenge? We’re giving you patterns for jumbo-sized quilt blocks and ideas for how to turn them into a quilt or project. Big blocks are so fun for making fast quilts and showing off large prints.
Each pattern will take two weeks.
- The first week, the block pattern instructions are given. You whip up a few awesome blocks and share them.
- Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to create a project using the block, it can be a quilt with lots of the blocks, a pillow with just one, or whatever you can imagine.
- The second week, we share a free pattern that we came up with for the block and you share your ideas too. Send us a picture and we will post your creation here.
Let’s take a look at the challenge patterns!
