This is my #favoritequiltblock for #missingmarket . I love putting together the color combinations for this special charity #bluerkblocks ! I have more color combinations cut out than I have sewn but whenever I finish one it brings a smile to my face and maybe even a little tear to my eye when I think of what these are for. Not to mention that these #raspberrykissblock are easy to make. Tutorial at @heritage.threads. Thank you to
@craftycop for coming up with this awesome project!
@gogokim @thesewingloft @yardgrl60 .
My #missingmarket#favoritequiltblock is the #raspberrykissblock by @heritage.threads that I am making for @craftycop ‘s wonderful project to give a quilt to families of fallen police officers (check out her Instagram feed!). It is an honor to make these blocks and contribute to this beautiful project.
I made 80 cross blocks (out of the needed 120) intending to turn them into #raspberrykissblock but now I don't want to - just flying by the seat of my pants here people! Sooooo, I need to come up with plan B for all these crosses. 🤔 Any suggestions?
My precious 😍 So excited for the #libertyquiltswap2017 here’s a few extra ideas for my #swapteambetsy partner. The more Liberty the better and I love simple repeat layouts - hexies, postage stamps, checkerboards, pluses, #raspberrykissblock and #moroccoquilt A cushion cover would be awesome but I love minis to so pick something you’ll enjoy making and go for it! Makers tagged ☺️
#bluerkblocks on their final Tasmanian moment before sailing across the seas to @craftycop. Sharing The Spirit of Tasmania (Australia) with you. .
Jessica is coordinating what started as a quilt or two, for fallen comrades families. This project has grown to be a labour of love for so many. Feeling like we Aussies are so far away to be of much help, a few blocks towards this cause is the little we can do. #sharingiscaring#raspberrykissblock#greatcausetosupport .

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
💙💙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.
From our corner to yours Jessica, these are being made with love. #sharingiscaring ❤️ #igcommunityspirit
After giving a few #raspberrykissblock some love last night I started to mentally write my Christmas sewing list ... I'm considering pouches ❤️what are your go to hand made gift ideas.
✂️ do you have a go to pouch pattern that is simple enough for a 5 yr old to help with ?
⭐️ extra points if it uses leatherette or cork fabric as I picked some up at #festivalofquilts2017 that I'm dying to snip into!!!
I finally had a chance to send the #bluerkblocks I made to @craftycop, and guess what, I won a prize! 😀 @oneygirl50 offered to send a fat 1/8 pack of @cottonandsteel fabric to the person who sent in the 1510th block to @craftycop, and that lucky person was me. (Thats A LOT of blocks people!) Hurray! @craftycop is still collecting blocks so check out her page if you'd like to help.
Had to drop everything and sew these #bluerkblocks for @craftycop, who is providing quilts to the families of police officers killed in action. Pattern is the #raspberrykissblock by @rachelwoodenspoon, as biggered by @heritage.threads 💙 I'm so happy to be able to contribute
Hey CMQG members! Don't forget this month's charity project. Bring your raspberry kiss blocks to next Wednesday's meeting for @craftycop . They're going to a great cause. Use an assortment of blues for the "X" and low volume neutrals for the background. Feel free to send binding or backing as well! #cmqg#charityquilting#raspberrykissblock
I couldn't get @craftycop request for blocks out of my mind. I largely try to stay away from politics and current event on here because my RL deals with it enough, but some things are just wrong. My heart goes out to the family of #miosotisfamilia . Jessica, seven blocks will be in the mail for you in the next day or two. #raspberrykissblock#blueRKblocks
