It Makes a Wonderfully Fun and Festive Quilt!
This fun block speaks to what summer is all about. It evokes images of warm summer days and 4th of July festivities, and makes us smile every time we see it.
Make one block into a mini quilt or incorporate several in a larger project. It’s a charming design that is sure to have a place in your summer decor.
Susan from Henny Penny added a 1-1/2″ x 12-1/2″ strip to the top and bottom of the block.
Instructions are provided for the following version in the quilt pattern. It finishes at 12″ x 16″ and will be wonderful on a wall or door.

The quilt is so festive and perfect for the summer. It’s 36″ x 38″ once completed. Enjoy it displayed on a wall in a prominent place or add more blocks for a throw or bed-sized quilt.
The block tutorial, from Laughing Yourself Into Stitches, is provided in two parts. Part 1 is for the watermelon section of the block while Part 2 is for the bird.
You’ll need the quilt pattern, available below, to make the blocks.
Once completed, the block is 12″ square.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
