Scrappy Summer Quilt Blocks

  August is Jodi Nelson's (Pleasant Home)
month for our 
Bees Knees Quilting Bee
 Jodi selected 
Cluck Cluck Sew's
Scrappy Summer-
a simple block.
In fact, these go together so fast,
Jodi requested we each make 6.
 For our fabrics,
Jodi sent 
 a cute little packet of 4 1/2 inch fabrics
along with solid strips to make the 
4-patch sections.
 There were some pretty cute fabrics in there.
I loved the honey bees :)
 I laid out the 6 blocks together 
to get an idea of the overall look of the quilt.
This is a great way to use up scraps.
Hence the name 
Scrappy Summer!
Allison's pattern can be found
And I even had enough fabric left
to make a couple more 
4-patch's to send along to Jodi, too.

HI Nedra - Paige's girlfriend mentioned to me that a friend she's known for years is a quilter - I checked out her blog and discovered that she used to be a member of the Bees Knees - do you know Pink Suede Shoes? Guess she doesn't blog much any more, but uses Instagram more. Anyway, thought that was a fun coincidence!
