BLOCK 2 With Block 2898, we tried out the different display options and printed the templates. BLOCK 3 We used all the fantastic Search options and printed the foundation pattern for Block 1638. BLOCK 4 For Block 785.7, we used Zoom in the Block Toolbar and learned about the Block print option.

Dream – Winners Announced

Posted 07-01-2021 by Christine | Posted in: Congratulations

If you haven’t looked, go see all the cool entries we received for June’s design challenge here! Thanks to all who participated! Winners Two winners were chosen… one by Riley Blake Designs and one by the designer, Kristy Lea. Riley Blake’s Winner: Sarah Chimblo! “This 60″X72″ quilt features the “left and right” and “Washington’s Puzzle” block alternated to create movement. Using two different shades of the pink/red creates shading with the rainbow blocks. I think the light purple/purple and light blue/blue would be good choices too.” - Sarah Chimblo Kristy Lea’s Winner: Claire K.! “I wanted to come up with a design that took advantage of the range of colors in this fabric line.” – Claire K. Thanks again to all who participated in this challenge. If you’re looking for another chance to win fabric, check out July’s design challenge!
