A Challenge (instead of a topic) in July

Posted by on July 1, 2014 in block lotto community, Linky Party | 2 comments

Linda suggested this idea and I liked it … probably because I’ve been planning to make a star block for this project for almost a year and have never gotten around to it.

Maybe you’ve already made a block for Astronaut Karen Nyberg’s Star Block Challenge … or, like me, you meant to, but never got around to it?  The deadline is August 1, which makes it a great challenge for July.



You can download the flyer from Quilts Inc, with the guidelines and info about where to send your star block, here:

Astronomical Quilts! Block Challenge

Basically, you just need to make ONE 9-inch (finished size) star block, in any pattern or colors, with no added embellishments.  I’ll update this list with star block patterns we’ve made as part of the block lotto, but you can use any star block pattern of your choice.

If you have already made a block for this challenge, you’re all set–just share it by blogging about it and adding a link.  If not, you have until the end of the month to make your block and send it to Houston.   You can blog about it here (use the category block lotto community and the tag star challenge) or on your own blog.


  1. I’m so glad you posted this challenge – I’m going to make a block!
    Thanks Sophie!

  2. Well isn’t this fun!! Great idea! Thanks Sophie!
