Scrap Happy Summer~ Block Party

Scrap quilts are the perfect way to take a simple block and make a stunning quilt.  Take the rail fence, what could be more simple than strips sewn together?
But when they get together in a scrappy rail fence block party they become a beautiful quilt.

 A 45* wedge block
 becomes a kaleidoscope of color. 
This simple block
When enjoying friends becomes this
And here is a plain little four patch
But when you get her with friends she can become quite stunning.

The list of blocks could go on and on.  This is just a sampling of riotous fun that can be had with simple scrappy blocks.  Now go have a party with your scraps.
