Raspberry Kiss Block Swap


Raspberry Kiss 12 ½” Block Swap

The Quilter’s Lodge is excited to host the Raspberry Kiss block swap.  
We will be using Jen Van Orman’s, from Heritage Threads, measurements for a 12 ½” block
and tutorial, which is based on the original Raspberry Kiss block from Wooden Spoons Quilts.


This swap is open to everyone from next door to our international quilty friends!

 

$10.00 non refundable sign up fee per set of 20 blocks.
Register at www.quilterslodge.com or in person at the shop.

If you wish to swap more than one set of blocks you will simply sign up again
and make a different set of 20 blocks.

Please use quilt shop quality fabric and it must be from a smoke free home.

You will create 20 of the same blocks to send in. Your blocks need to measure
12 ½” when complete. Please do not trim blocks down, we will leave that to
the recipient of the blocks. You will receive one of your own back as part of the 20.
 

Share your block progress with us on Instagram using the hashtag #QuiltersLodgeRKBlockSwap

 

Your blocks must reach us by Friday July 9th 2021, no exceptions.

Bonus project

The originator of this swap is a police officer and fellow quilter. 
This project has taken on a personal meaning for her as she now uses the Raspberry Kiss block
in blues and low volumes to make quilts to honor the families of fallen officers.
We are asking anyone that wishes, to also include one or more blue X blocks with their swap blocks. 
We will collect these and send them to her at the conclusion of the swap.
There will be a prize for the most blue X blocks donated.

­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­

If you have any questions before starting your blocks or at any time about the swap details, deadlines, what is considered low volume, etc., please email Becky@quilterslodge.com  subject: Raspberry Kiss Swap.

 

Please share with your friends, the more the merrier and the more variety of blocks!

 But wait…to add some more fun to the swap we will be doing some giveaways along the way.
