Raspberry Kisses

I was finally able to connect with and join my local modern quilt guild in October. This made me very happy since the only other quilters I know are part of the blogging/online community. Of course, on the day of their October monthly meeting my little guy was home sick with strep throat so I couldn't attend but I was able to sign up for an upcoming retreat that is scheduled for this coming weekend. SQUEAL!!!!.

An interesting thing that they do at each meeting is have a block lottery. A specific block is selected each month and for each block you make, you get your name put into a drawing. If your name is randomly selected, you win all of the blocks made. For the November lottery, the Raspberry Kiss block was chosen so I made 2 of them.

Now let's hope I can attend November's meeting!


  1. Love this block, new to me Good luck on winning

    1. I think this block is adorable. Who knows, maybe I'll win and have a new project to work on during the retreat.

  2. Oh, the retreat sounds lovely and I hope you really enjoy connecting with quilters in person (I'm excited for you!). :)

  3. how good to have joined the group and what a good idea the block a month is fingers crossed you win on your first visit. Not heard of this block before
    Trust the throat is better now

  4. I am going on retreat this weekend too!
    (My guild is the non-specific kind: traditional, modern, art, contemporary ... all welcome.)

  5. That is awesome that you are able to connect with some local modern quilters. Have fun at the retreat!


Thanks for taking the time to comment! I love hearing from my readers. I typically respond directly to your email unless it's an answer that I think everyone would be interested in hearing. If you are a no-reply blogger (and I know that blogger doesn't play nice with other blogging platforms!), I will reply directly on my website. Thanks for stopping by!
