Colors of Summer


When you think of summer, what colors do you see?

That was our assignment for May in the do.Good Stitches bee.  Make two blocks with this tutorial.  Choose summer colors.

Now that is what I call fun!  I really enjoyed picking the fabrics for these blocks.


And it will be great seeing all these blocks together with each person's color impressions all in one quilt.

Are there "official" summer colors out there somewhere?  What are the colors that sing summer to you?
