It’s week 8 of the Riley Blake Designs Quilt block challenge, and I have to say that I’m pretty excited that I’ve managed to stay caught up on my blocks so far!

About the Garden Charm Quilt Block

This week’s block is straightforward but can be customized in many different ways. If you like to fussy cut the fabrics in your quilt, then I think you will love this block since it offers several spots to add a bit of charming fabric.

Even though this block is straightforward, I seemed to have messed up and had to unpick my seams several times! It’s all user error; I wasn’t paying close enough attention to the instructions.

The block is called Garden Charm and was designed by Fran Gulick of Cotton and Joy. If you haven’t checked out Fran’s quilt patterns, then you need to! She creates gorgeous modern quilt patterns. I’m smitten with her latest pattern, Copihue.

Quilt Pattern Progress

I took a moment to lay most of my finished blocks out this week to double-check my color and value placement. I’m happy with how they are progressing. I noticed that I need to watch my color value placement on a few of the blocks since I’m using a few colors with different values of the same tint.

My blocks are made with Sparkler Fabrics by Riley Blake Designs in Mediterreanean, Jade, Bleached Denim, Songbird, Bear Lake & White.
