Shhhh! 16 more blocks to attach corner overs (already cut) to! I'll knock those out tonight and tomorrow, and quilting on Wednesday! It's so very hard to do this with my husband in the house because it's for him! 😂I'll be sending him on a ton of errands this week #raspberrykiss#raspberrykissblock
I bribed my 3 and 5 year olds with candy to attempt to hold this #raspberrykissblock quilt top up for a picture before the bus came. It’s cold. And windy. So this is the best we could do! This was the quilt block of 2017 project that @axaemma and I assigned ourselves to finish before year’s end. Until last week it was 7 blocks on my design wall. Then I dreamed up that echo-y sashing and we’re gonna call this done(ish) with maybe a border to be added.
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?
Ok guys! I have had fun working on some #getyourquiltywishesgranted3 And I have been thinking that what I would like most is to pair up with a few people to make a #bluerkblocks quilt from start to finish to send to all of our favorite officer @craftycop 👮🏻♀️You know, this thing, this Quilty thing we do, is so much more than padding our stash. My 💙 is full every time she posts about these quilts. If you would be interested in making blocks and sending them to me to finish the quilt, message me here or send me a DM. And the other position I need filled is for someone to send me backing fabric. I will take it from there! Again, message me or send a DM. Let’s do this!!!

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
