Modern Quilt group meeting – 8 October

Here is a message from the co-ordinators, Michelle, Jan & Jenny about this month’s meeting. Meeting starts at 7.30pm on 8 October in the CQ room at Cook.

We had a great “chillax” last month and have decided to have a chillax month every three months because it was lots of fun.

This month is not for chillaxing, although you are very welcome to do that if you like! I thought we could make the Raspberry Kiss block as per the Wooden Spoon Quilts blog –

You can elect to make a 4 1/4 inch finished or 8 1/2 finished block. I’ll be showing you how to do the 8 1/2 inch block (see photo for some examples), so if you want to join in, please precut the following fabrics:

  • 4 x 2½” background fabric squares (low value)
  • 2 x  2½” cross fabric squares (medium – dark value) CORRECTED
  • 1 x 6½” x  2½” cross rectangle (as above) CORRECTED
  • 2 x 5½” squares, cut on the diagonal (so 4 triangles) (low value)


Also bring your sewing machine and sewing equipment including rulers, mats and rotary cutter. The blocks are quite quick to make so perhaps bring along a couple of blocks cut out. Or else share your machine with a friend (there is never enough space anyway!) and chillax the rest of the time 😉

 If you don’t want to partake in the block making, then please BYO sewing. Also please bring along your show and tell.

  1. Please note the cutting directions in my email were incorrect! I have since sent am email to the group to amend them, but in the meantime, the cutting instructions should be:
    4 – 2 1/2″ background fabric squares (low value)
    2 – 2 1/2″ cross fabric squares (medium – dark value)
    1 – 6 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ cross rectangle (as above)
    2 – 5 1/2″ squares, cut on the diagonal (so 4 triangles) (low value) – note my triangles are bigger than the blog triangles. This is so I can trim to size better.
