Top pieced. I've been so impressed that the blocks went together so easily thanks to everyone's quarter inch seam allowance. Next is basting the layers together. #bluerkblocks #patchworkbypaula.net #@craftycop

Hey local peeps! ๐Ÿ™‹ Join us in support of @craftycop and her mission to make quilts like this one for the families of fallen police officers. If you aren't familiar with the project, check out #bluerkblocks on IG. Go ahead...I'll wait. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ 
Ok. Ready to help?  You can drop off completed blocks at our shop over the next couple weeks, and we'll mail them with our completed quilt. It takes 42 to make a quilt....hmmm wouldn't it be great to send TWO quilts?! ๐Ÿ’™

Need info on the block? Email the shop, and we'll send you the link to the tutorial. Or stop by the shop on Saturday for a demonstration!

Admittedly, my design wall needs to grow. But don't  these #bluerkblocks look great, even doubled up?!? ...
Thanks to the staff at @thedancingbobbin and time at our recent retreat, we'll be able to send a completed quilt to @craftycop ๐Ÿ˜Š

Every block makes a difference. So if you want to join the #bluerkblocks bandwagon, look up the tutorial on heritage threads' blog and start sewing. These 12.5" blocks come together very quickly.

What goes around, comes around. I have been very fortunate to be a part of the project coordinated by @craftycop to make Quilts for the families of fallen police officers. @craftycop posts pictures of the blocks sent to her and progress pics of tops being put together. I had never seen a picture of any of my blocks in the finished quilt tops UNTIL I received the kit to piece and quilt one of these quilts. There was one of my blocks!  It came back to me and now proudly displays the label that will be on this quilt made possible by @craftycop and countless quilters. To be part of this wonderful project, please follow @craftycop on Instagram. #bluerkblocks #patchworkbypaula.net

Ok I started another Instagram page (@springquilts) that will be featuring all of my quilting/sewing. I figure I will keep this feed open for all of my family and personal stuff. However, it is already becoming a pain to switch back and forth. ๐Ÿ˜† So I am going to keep my feed how it is; eclectic! I like to quilt, and workout, and spend alllll the time with my kids, and eat and show it all off. So enjoy my messy feed. Also, l love my #bluerkblocks and I plan on making more and more!! ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ’™

After my selfish sewing today, I made a block for #bluerkblocks.  I should make this a habit!  I was hesitant to try, because, so many times, my blocks are wonky and mis-sized. But this block goes together soooo easily, and allows for trimming at both stages. Hard to mess up. If you've been hesitating, I encourage you to try it. It feels so good!

When you wake up at 4am and can't get back to sleep, you get up and finish the binding on the #bluerkblocks  quilt. Max, however, preferred to go back to sleep, under the quilt.

Day 2 of piecing this #bluerkblock quilt. Looks a little funky right now but with "web piecing" all I have to do now is piece the rows together horizontally. #bluerkblocks #@craftycop #patchworkbypaula.net

Starting the layout of blocks for a #bluerkblocks quilt that will be given to the family of a fallen police officer. This is a project started by @craftycop, a Police officer/Quilter, with the help of her many IG followers. To get involved, follow @craftycop or search #bluerkblocks to see what quilters can accomplish when they adopt such a worthwhile cause. The finished Quilt will be seven rows.

#blueRKblocks Update...I had to use my design floor for this one since my design wall isn't big enough and is covered with ufo's. ๐Ÿ˜ซ So glad Jessica sends a few extra blocks to help with layout issues. Thank you, Jessica!  I had a hard time following the 5th guideline of throwing perfection out the window when piecing, but I did end up with a few pretty points. ๐Ÿ˜Š And now, after passing my math final, I am sewing the rows together!  Thanks, Jessica for the honor of helping! Can't wait to quilt it! @craftycop

I am putting these four 12.5" blocks in the mail Monday to @craftycop. When I started my quilting hobby a couple years ago, I had no clue about the phenomenal quilting community on IG. Or that the words quilt blocks and fallen police officers would be used in the same sentence. Anyway, every stitch was done with thoughts of gratitude and more. Thank you, Jessica, for ALL you do. #bluerkblocks #generosityofquilters #raspberrykissblock

๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™Friday evening trimming of #bluerkblocks for @craftycop . Jessica is both a cop and a quilter who is taking donations of @heritage.threads  #raspberrykissblock (12x12 tutorial on her blog) and coordinating them into quilts for fallen comrades families.  Living in the lucky country we can hardly fathom a need for the 30 and counting quilts, but statistics say otherwise.

#bluerkblocks up on the design wall. I see a few I need to move around, but I wanted to get them up to see them all together. Everyone did an amazing job with their blocks! It's a birthday weekend at our house, so they'll have to wait until Monday to be sewn together.

My Happy Mail Box arrived today๐Ÿ‘. I have followed/participated in this project almost from the very beginning. Two or three times a day I check IG for new posts from @craftycop. Today I find it very difficult to even describe the feeling that comes over you when you open the box with all those squares and suddenly this project is SO REAL and the goal to provide comfort to a family of a fallen police officer is overwhelming. On a lighter note, I have looked at all of the pics posted and have never found one of my blocks. I found one today in this stack!๐Ÿ˜„. Guess which block the label will be on๐Ÿ˜„.

A glimpse of my first ever 12.5" Raspberry Kiss block made for the #bluerkblocks project organized by Jessica aka @craftycop. This is now a favorite, special block pattern (and easy)!

Yay!! My box of #bluerkblocks arrived from @craftycop ! I'm going to piece the top, quilt it on a Longarm machine at @meissnersewingandvacuum , and hand bind the finished quilt. My dad worked his way up the ranks in the Sheriff's department for 30+ years. I was fortunate that he was never seriously hurt on the job. My appreciation and gratitude will be sewn into the quilt with every stitch.  I'm honored to be given this opportunity. Thank you, Jessica!

It's amazing how much work you can get done on your pile of #bluerkblocks when your husband calls from work and says "do you mind if I have dinner with the people here from the Netherlands?" and you happen to like PB&J for supper! Yabbadabbadoo! My #pfaff is smokin' tonight! #sewwhatyoulove #sewforacause #quilting #communityeffort #ittakesavillage

When you sew the label on that final block, it hits hard, the reason we are all doing this. @craftycop #bluerkblocks

Squarin' me up some #bluerkblocks this morning before I head out to meet my BFSSF (That's Best Friend and Sewing Sister Forever) @catessewmodern quilt shop in Madison (she's on Etsy too). I'm in need of more fabric ๐Ÿ™ˆ. I can justify buying more fabric because I just used a bunch of it for these blocks, right? ๐Ÿ™Š#sewforacause #quilting @craftycop #fabrichoarder #fabriholic  #sewwhatyoulove #ineedmorefabric #quiltshops #thisquiltshoprocks #fabricaddiction
