St. Jacobs Quilt Challenge Blocks

I made the trip over to St. Jacobs to see the challenge blocks. They are hanging in a different building this year (The Mill)  but they were easy to find.
I always like to take my time voting for my favorite... drives my husband crazy! I have to look at each one and think about it. I loved the block on the top row second from the right, but they added black and you were supposed to use just the colours on your paint chip, so I couldn't vote for it. The piecing was amazing on that block! I always worry about how they will be able to put the quilt together, especially with so many different colours this year, but they always do an amazing job. Can you guess which block I voted for?!?
I'll send a Fat Quarter to the first three commenters who correctly guess my favorite block!

  8. Just checking out your blog. There is some great "stuff" going on there. I love the orange peel blocks. What a terrific idea to put them like a pinwheel. Lots of movement. I think you voted for #11. Lots of pieces.

  12. They are all great blocks. #17 is great, but not sure the colors are a good match. My guess would have to be #14, the points are amazing and the colors look right on.
