Block 8 in the 2024 Riley Blake Designs quilt block challenge is a unique star quilt block designed by Jill Finley of Jillily Studios.

One of my favorite things about the Riley Blake block challenge is seeing how many different ways there are to make a star quilt block! Star quilt blocks are some of my favorite quilt blocks. The shapes and angles make for such interesting patterns. They are also great if you love to fussy cut your fabrics since most feature a large center square.

At the beginning of the challenge, I decided to fussy cut as many of the fabrics in my blocks as possible.

For this block, I fussy-cut the center, the cow print from Tulip Cottage, and the four pink squares surrounding it.

All of the Block Challenge Patterns

Since I’ve got quite a few quilt blocks at this point, I thought I’d take a moment and lay them out on my design wall! I like to check for color balance and variation midway though a quilt project. That way, I have time to change or reevaluate the direction in which my design is going.
