Happy Summer to everyone.
Our Red, White, & Blue block challenge is underway
and we have some great blocks turned in already.
This is a Red, White, and Blue challenge, but with a bit of a twist. We have 5" squares of red and blue for you to choose from. The challenge is that if you pick a red square, you need to make a blue & white block with just a little bit of red in it. If you choose a blue square, you need to make a red & white block with just a little bit of blue in it. The blocks need to be 12 1/2" unfinished (to finish at 12") and they need to be turned in by 4 pm on July 4th. We will draw the winners at 4pm on July 4th.
