Take 5 - Summertime

The name of this pattern is Take 5 because you take 5 fabrics, stack them, cut then move them around so each fabric is in each block. The strawberries and watermelon seemed to be so busy I used a solid and TOT for the other fabrics. I had some bulls-eye watermelon slices left over from a long ago swap so put those on, too. Twas a fun and easy quilt to do.

Thanks, Sally. It only took a couple days to make. It probably would only take you one day. @:)

Beverly, I thought those melon slices added a bit to it. The strawberry fabric has a blue background so used it for the narrow border to help break up the red. There aren't any plans for it, so it'll go into the stack.
