Quilts (42 Blocks) to benefit families of fallen Law Enforcement Officers

12.5”  Bluerkblocks

Recreated by Jen Van Orman from her original pattern 12.5” Raspberry Kiss Block.  Posted on her blog on September 9, 2016 by heritagethreads.

Happy Friday!  I thought I’d do something a little different today and instead of a 6″ #jensfillerblocks, I’d share the cutting instructions for a 12.5″ raspberry kiss block on my blog. I shared this on instagram months and months ago.  I had honestly forgotten about it until I assembled my B&C Sampler quilt today and had some that my lovely friend Jessica had sent me as a thank you for doing the quilty math for this.  This was the beginning of doing quilty math to change the size of blocks, which then led to my filler blocks. Kind of a fun block for that reason.

(4) 3-1/2″ x 3-1/2″ background squares

(2) 3-1/2″ x 3-1/2″ pink squares

(1) 3-1/2″ x 9″ pink rectangle

(2) 7″ x 7″ green for the corners, cut in half once diagonally

Sew together the middle “cross” section. You will need to cut 1/4″ from each edge to make end up with a 9″ square.

Sew the green triangles onto the corners as instructed in the original raspberry kiss block.

Note from the Maus to JAXMQG and Coastal Quilters….

Good ¼” seam allowance; proper pressing and trimming the center to 9” are keys to perfectly sized blocks.    Also pay attention to placement of directional fabrics; saves spending any time with the dreaded Mr. Ripper!
