Could this be one of favourite projects EVER? Yes I think so!
As you might remember from this post, I found a gorgeous mini quilt on pinterest that used these blocks. After some detective work I discovered the maker and followed her information over to the Raspberry Kiss block tutorial by Wooden Spoon Quilts.
I ended up making 16 blocks, with the bright colours coming from scraps and off cuts from other projects. I’ve seen a lot of people use low volume prints as a feature in other projects but this is the first time I’ve done it and I can see why it’s so popular – I really LOVE the effect.
For the back I used this pretty aqua spot / stripe that I picked up recently at Spotlight. For my cushion backs I always use this method from a tutorial by Ms Midge which looks lovely and neat but is a super easy way to make a zip closure for a cushion.
Nice, neat and hidden!
I’ve been making a lot of cushions lately, they are a lovely way to feature a small scale quilted project. They also make really great gifts. This one I’m keeping, and I won’t even put it on the couch, I’m too scared the kids will touch it with dirty hands! I’ve claimed it for myself and it’s currently the feature cushion on my bed.
