Congratulations to Sally Best for her beautiful Sugar Plum Tablerunner!  She turned the block on point, added patchwork setting triangles, and the total effect is pure elegance.

And finally, for the first place winner with the most votes … Congratulations to Myrna Barnes!  Her rainbow quilt is made up of carefully selected shades of Kona Solids and is striking with the white and gray backgrounds!  Beautifully made, wonderfully quilted and well-deserved!

Thank you to everyone who participated! We loved going through all of your entries and seeing how you turned our free Sugar Plum Block pattern into each one of your amazing projects! To see more entries for the Sugar Plum Block Challenge, check out #SugarPlumBlockChallenge on Instagram. And if you are feeling in the Sugar Plum Block spirit, be sure to check out our video tutorial for the Sugar Plum Block. We used the Hazel & Plum collection by Fig Tree Quilts for Moda Fabrics to make our version of the Sugar Plum Block.

We are so happy we got the chance to partner with Joanna Figueroa of Fig Tree Quilts and would like to thank her for designing the beautiful Sugar Plum Block.  We hope you enjoyed this challenge and stay tuned on the Jolly Jabber and our social media accounts (Facebook and Instagram) to see more Fat Quarter Shop fun!
