HIVE 4 JUNE BLOCK

June block for Hive 4 Block is the Great Granny Block, from the wonderful Lori Holt over at the Bee in My Bonnet blog!
It is a larger version of the granny block from Jolene at Blue Elephant Stitches.



It is an easy block to put together. 

 It is a 12.5 inch block and I would love to have TWO from each of you if possible! It is a perfect block to use up jellyrolls and other precuts, as the squares are all 2.5 inches!  (all except the background rectangles of Kona Butter)

There is a wonderful tutorial for it at Lori Holt’s blog-Bee in My Bonnet.

 I would like the background to be Kona Butter, as previously mentioned. For the palette, I have chosen a picture below for you to pick your fabric from.  I love these colors, especially the oranges and corals.  If you choose to use the warm plum please use it sparingly as I would like it to be an accent rather than a focal color!
 Also ignore the light-lights in the the palette-those will be the Kona Butter!
I love bright colors and rich, saturated colors, tone on tones, polka dots florals, plaids, text fabrics, checks, stripes, mottled fabrics, a few solids mixed in-they are all good!  I do not really like Civil War or 30’s fabrics.  Otherwise anything goes!
