Description

Hive #9's block for the month of August is the "LynneBobSquarePants" block.  I hope the name of the block makes you smile because this block is all about bright, summery, happy colors.  My plan is to use these blocks for a lap quilt that will help to brighten my rather dark family room.  It's meant to be enjoyed, so grab a cup of tea and let's get busy on some half square triangles!

Colors: Bright, clear colors of your choice.  Please avoid greys, browns, or pastels.  The background should be a true white such as Kona White, not cream or ivory.  

Tutorial: The "LynneBobSquarePants" block by Lily's Quilts.  I chose warm colors (reds, oranges, and yellows) to make the large diamond and cool colors (blues and greens) for all the rest.  You are free to arrange your fabrics however you think best.  Please do not trim.

Any questions? Just let me know.

Notice that the fabrics in the top row are placed in reverse order of the bottom row. The second row is in reverse order of the fifth row, and the 3rd and 4th rows are in reverse of each other. Arrange yours to suit your fancy.

Love your LynneBobSquarePants block and the great colors you used. I have this block "pinned" with plans to use it someday. Nice job!

True Thanks! It's fun to pick out a whole bunch of little 3" squares!

Conniharns , I love this design too because it allows for just the right amount of scrappiness for me without confusing my eye. :)
