Believe Circle Quilt Plans for September - Fire and Ice

It's my turn to choose our quilt design for the Believe Circle. I was inspired this month by a quilt I saw on Pinterest. 

It's going to be a fire and ice quilt this month.

I know I'm early, but my first granddaughter will be making her way into the world sometime around August 30, and I know as soon as that action starts, bee blocks will be far from my mind. So here they are, early.

I did not have any particular block in mind, so I drew a few simple ones out and had some fun.

Lately, every time I sit down to play with blocks, some sort of chevron design shows up. I rolled with it this time and let the neutrals take the stage with this block.

For the mixed block, I went for an improv fire.

And since there were already some strips cut from the second block, this third, very hot block was created.

Instructions for Believe Circle Members:

Make three 6 1/2" blocks this month. You may use any design you like... nine-patch, four-patch, stars, half square triangles, paper piecing, improv ...anything goes. 
One block should be neutrals, one block should be a mix of neutrals and "hot" colors, and one block should be all "hot" colors. You can use solids or prints. 
Have fun!
