Welcome to week one of the National Quilters Circle Quilting for a Cause Quilt Block Challenge! The first block is ready, are you? Let’s get to it!
Over the course of the next 7 weeks we will be releasing blocks for you to make throughout the week. Our managing editor, Ashley Hough, has designed a unique quilt pattern for this special challenge. When finished, the quilt will be 48’’ x 60’’ and each finished block will be 6’’.
In this week’s instructions, there are three different blocks (Block A, B and C). From the three patterns you will make 4 of Block A, 2 of Block B and 2 of Block C.
Click the button below to download a PDF with instructions for your first block. And make sure to share your progress in the Quilting Block Challenge Facebook Group – we can’t wait to see everyone’s work!
For this challenge, we partnered with Project Linus, an organization that will accept your homemade quilt and distribute them to children in need. We know how sharing a quilt with someone can make the whole experience even more worthwhile and we hope to donate as many quilts as possible. However, you can still participate in the challenge if you choose not to donate the finished quilt.
Find your local Project Linus chapter for donation here!
If you haven’t signed up for the Quilt Block Challenge, there’s still time! You can sign up here to make sure you get the block assignments delivered to your inbox each week.
