BOMs Away - Veggie Patch Bell Pepper

You know, these veggies don’t have cute and catchy titles like the fruits. Why? I don’t know. I can’t think of any fun songs or phrases with bell peppers in them. I’ve got “you say tomato” for that one, but everything else? Maybe an “earful of corn”? (Groan. I’m sorry.)

Anyway, it may not have a cute name, but it’s a cute block! And like the carrots, you have plenty of color choices! Red, orange, green, yellow - pick your favorite! I went with red this time, but spoiler alert - there will be more than one in the final quilt layout.

Get the printer-friendly instructions here! The block will be free for a month until the next one posts - but don’t be too upset if you miss one. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Hopatong Community Garden, so you’ll be helping a great cause run by one of my good friends.

I’m using a variety of Kona browns for the background fabric this time. I also use the Quilt in a Day triangle ruler to trim my half square triangles.

And so… Did anyone else work on (or start) a BOM? Or a project broken into {slightly} more manageable monthly pieces? Or a few blocks for someone else’s charity project? Link up here or at What a Hoot!
