2021 Antique Block Challenge

 What a great response to the challenge! Thank you all! 

PS Claret strips are gone1 Thx!

Here are the "rules" 

  • Challenge will be completed by May 30.2022 (before we get summertime busy)
  • Make it any size you want. We will not be exchanging quilts.
  • Please take a photo of your block prior to making your challenge. It will be fun to see the block and challenge quilt side by side.
  • Feel free to slice, dice, deconstruct your block. 
  • It can be pieced or appliqued, or both!

If you want an antique block, please send $5 with your mailing address and I'll get the block in the mail! Thank you

Please use send money to a friend option so neither of us pays a fee.

I hope everyone is having a great week!


  1. Looks like fun, Lori! I have several old quilt blocks so will sign on for this! Thanks!

  2. Well I went through my closet and cannot figure out what I did with my old blocks so I probably won’t join but I will watch the fun. Love your videos too.

    1. Maybe you will find the old blocks before May 2022?

  3. I always enjoy your videos. This one was interesting bec you showed the fabrics and things about the old blocks that attracted you.

    I sent payment for my block. I don't mind reasonable holes. And I love that pink dot from the Chimney Sweep top you are dismantling.

    PS you look so pretty---blouse, hair! <3

  4. Planning to participate this year - I had chosen a block and some additional fabrics late in the game last year, so thanks for another chance!

  5. My block arrived today and I love it! I can’t find a name for the block, the best match was called’ Give this a Name’ page. 35 in Maggie Malones book but the 4 patch was oriented differently. Also looks like
    2/3 of a Jacobs Ladder. It is so fun! Now to think about how I am going to use it in the quilt!
    Thank you so much Lori
