For the August block of the month, let's keep it simple, as summer is a busy time. How about just some simple 9-patch blocks in a rainbow color scheme?
Using 4 1/2 inch squares, cut 9 squares all in the same color family but using 9 different print fabrics. Try to go with a Modern vibe for your choices. This is a great way to use up some scraps! Sew together into a 9-Patch. This will make a 12 1/2" (12" finished) block. You can use any color you want to, not only what is shown in the inspiration photo.
The inspiration for this month's block can be found at Quilting is More Fun Than Housework.
