Mysterious Challenge – Applique Block

October 1 is the deadline Susan and I set for me to have the 18″ x 18″ applique block drawn. This is my rough sketch. I was playing with two ideas at the same time. I liked both; Susan preferred the bottom, left iteration. You’ll probably see the other side of this drawing in a quilt at some point in the future.

Here is the link to the finished pattern. It is a PDF file and will print out onto 6 pages that you will need to trim and tape together. I used a ruler to keep the center lines straight.

Susan and I both have finished sewing the blocks we are going to share with each other. Rather than wait until November 1 we are going to go ahead and share them. I’ll post more photos once my design wall is free and I can put them up.

Happy stitching!

    • Whatever you want it to be. I’ll show you what Susan and I are each doing but this isn’t a ‘pattern’ in the normal sense. For example: we each made pieced blocks in finished sizes of 3”, 6”, and 9”. I won’t be writing instructions for these blocks. You can make some like it, or not.

      Each of us is figuring out what we want as we go along. That’s the ‘challenge’ part of the challenge. And it’s all mysterious at this point because we don’t exactly know what we are making :-).



  1. Thank you for sharing this little pattern! I have ideas flowing of what I like to do. Looking forward to seeing what both of you come up with!


  2. Thanks for sharing your cute little pattern! I have ideas flowing already! Looking forward to seeing what you and Susan come up with!
