Raspberry and Cream BOM {Block 4}

Hi there! Today I am ready to share my fourth block for the Raspberry and Cream Block of the Month!!


These patterns are not "free", so you will need to purchase a kit to receive the fabric + patterns.  The Raspberry & Cream BOM was designed & written by Marsha McCloskey.  We are simply sharing our progress and giving a few tips on completing your blocks as you sew along using your purchased pattern.

***We only have a couple of finishing kits left for this and we are unable to reorder fabric since the manufacturer is out of this fabric! Also if you would like your backing to match, be sure to snag some before we are completely out of the fabric! Purchase HERE

 For backing you'll need to purchase 5.625 yards (44" wide) or 2.5 yards (108" wide) backing. 


Cat's Cradle

For this block you will need to use fabrics A, B, E, F, and D from your Blocks Kit:

For this block you will use the Precision Trimmer 3 Ruler as well.  I used this ruler for the last block and you can find all the information HERE!

Also, I tried something a little different with this block.  I pressed my seams open to reduce bulk and it really helped!  Those pesky triangles can sure make a lot of bulk! Also, be sure to be very careful when pressing those triangles - you are working with bias edges and they can easily be distorted! So I try really hard to not do any back and forth ironing! Just pressing! That really helps when working with all those triangles!

Your blocks should measure 9.5" x 9.5" unfinished.  The best way to ensure you get that is to use a 1/4" presser foot!
