RBD Block Challenge Block 16 & The Finished Quilt

After months of anticipation, I’m so excited to share with you both the last block in the RBD challenge AND the layout of the finished sampler quilt!

I hope that you’ve enjoyed participating in the Riley Blake 2021 Quilt Block Challenge. This will be my last post in the series. However, I will be sure to share my finished quilt with you as a part of our Finish it Friday series later this summer.

Before we chat about the final quilt layout let’s “meet” this weeks’ quilt block pattern.

Block 16 was designed by Lori Holt and is called Checkerboard Star. Before you begin, I have a tip for you as you create this block.

After you’ve sewn the 9 patch block for the center, please take a few minutes and trim and square it up. I didn’t do that and had some when it came time to sew my block together. So don’t make a mistake I did, LOL!

How to Get the Pattern

You can get all of the blocks emailed to you by filling out this form.

Finished Quilt!

Are you ready to see the finished quilt?! This quilt was constructed using Riley Blake Designs confetti cotton solids.

In addition to the 16 sampler blocks created uring the quilt along, the quilt top features checkerboard cornerstones and a creative sashing.

The quilt measures 62 1/2″ x 62 1/2″ when finished.

My daughter has already claimed this quilt for herself. However, she’d like to use it on her full-size bed, so I plan to add a small border of solid fabric and a wider border of white fabric to the outside to make mine a bit larger.

All the Blocks!

If you missed it, here are all of the blocks that were a part of the block challenge. Again, I hope that you enjoyed playing along.

If you’re not done with your blocks yet, don’t worry! I do not plan on removing the patterns from the Library.

  1. The material for your quilt is no longer available. I am a beginner and would love this challenge! Do you think that the fat quarters in the colors of your quilt will be available at a later date?

    1. You could use any Liberty of London fabric. They all have a similar look and feel.
