Ah, summer time - time for summer squash! And your summer squash quilt block!

The best part about summer is how little cooking I actually have to do! Just marinate the chicken, toss the veggies in a grill basket, and hand it over to my husband. Twenty minutes later, he returns with grilled squash, grilled chicken, grilled whatever else. And we eat so many more veggies, because they’re just better off the grill!

And the squash quilt block is almost as easy! Just yellows, a bit of green, just a few half square triangles, and voila - a nice summer treat.

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.

If you’re joining me in these blocks, please use #veggiepatchquilt on Instagram or comment here so I can find your blog!

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!
