BOMs Away - Veggie Patch Jalapeño

Welcome to summer! In honor of it being hot - hot - hot - it’s jalapeño time! Seriously, we had a wet May and June (full of tornado warnings), but now it’s officially hitting 100º on a regular basis. And by regular, I mean daily. Before noon. Ugh.

So the block! It’s another easy one, just a few scraps. Because no one wants to be next to the hot iron very long this time of year. But you can mix up the colors - jalapeños come in red, green, yellow, orange, deep purple… You’ll need more than one for the final quilt layout, or you can make a few and have a summer BBQ table runner in no time!

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!
