March – Raspberry Kisses

Perhaps it’s a bit early for berry season, but kissing is year-round. Let’s show each other some affection and make some X blocks.

Please do two parallel rows of raspberry kiss blocks, with two opposing parallel rows of a fabric that will create some negative space. Four sides in total.

The size and spacing of your raspberry kiss blocks is up to you.

The tutorial that so many quilters online refer to is at Wooden Spoon Quilts.

Heritage Threads then blew it up big, showing us that once you know the formula, it can be tweaked to your preference.

A review of posted photos makes me think that non-directional fabrics with lots of solid background work best for the X’s, as the two pieces then blend into each other more. For example:
