Raspberry and Cream BOM {Block 6}

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

Eliza's Nine Patch


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.

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

Block Layout:

I LOVE this block.  I think this one is my favorite so far.  I have never put a block together quite like this and I really enjoyed it.  I had no problems with this block, and I feel like it turned out great.  I will mention on that tiny 9-patch I did iron my seams open.  Other than that, I think the block is pretty straightforward and easy to put together.  

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!
