Summer always makes me think of bright sunny colors and nice cold treats. So today I am sharing a fun bright quilt block with you and two delicious popsicle appliqué files to finish the blocks off.

Quilt Block Instructions

For each quilt block, you will need two colors of fabric. I used white and yellow, and white and orange. This block squares to 12″ and when combined with other blocks will be 11.5″ finished.

From the white cut –

1 – 6 1/2″ square

2 – 3 1/2″ squares

From the orange cut –

1 – 6 1/2″ square

2 – 3 1/2″ squares

1 – 12 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ strip

Assemble the block as described and pictured below. Attach the two large squares to each other. Next, attach the four small squares to each other alternating colors as you go. Attach the strip with large squares to the long rectangle.

Lastly, attach the strip of small squares to the other side of the long rectangle. Be sure to press and square the pieces after each step.

Now we are ready to cut the popsicle appliqués. Cut a square or use a scrap that is large enough for the popsicle and a smaller piece for the popsicle stick.

Then bond a piece of Heat N Bond to the back of each of the fabrics. Use your cutting machine or scissors to cut out the popsicle and popsicle stick.

Use your favorite heat source to attach the popsicles to the front of your quilt block. Now you have a fun popsicle quilt block that you can add to a quilt or quilt it, bind it, and hang it on your front door to welcome all your summer visitors!
