November Block of the Month

November's choice for block lotto is this cute little raspberry kiss block.  The blocks measure 4.25" (unfinished) and are quite addicting once you get to making them.

Rachel at Wooden Spoon Quilts has a wonderful tutorial for making these blocks.  She even has instructions for making other sizes, but for our block lotto follow the 4.25" size directions.

Bright modern fabrics make up the crosses; use white, cream, neutral, low volume for the background areas.

For fun, here are some links to projects made using these adorable blocks.

Have fun!


  1. Being new to the guild, I still have a lot to learn. Can you tell me more about the block lotto and the BOM? Do members make these for the next meeting?

  2. Yes, we have a new BOM every month, to be completed for the next meeting. You can make as many blocks as you like; you get a ticket for each block you bring in.

  3. math question here: OMQG's block is 4.5" unfinished, right? the wooden spoon block is 4.25" unfinished so I'll be recalculating, right?

    1. Jane, thanks for pointing out the discrepancy. No need to recalculate. The block size should be 4.25" unfinished. I will update the blog post to make that correction.

    2. I was going to ask the same thing! Thanks for clarifying.
