School Block Challenge


School Block Challenge - 2022

School Block Challenge is an annual quilt block competition and exhibit, sponsored by Moda Fabrics, for children grades K-12 nationwide. Moda generously provides three challenge fabrics that must be included in every block entry. Students can put their math skills & creativity to work in creating a quilt square of their own design. 

Entries are judged in the following categories: K-4th grade, 5th–8th grade, 9th–12th grade. Cash prizes are awarded to the teacher/parent of the winning students for arts/quilt education. All entries are exhibited in the Museum during the first quarter of the year and then returned once the exhibit closes. 

Students can make a block on their own, at school in the classroom, in a home school program, with a Scout Troop, in a 4-H club, as part of some other club/organization, etc.
