October Charity Bee Block

When my son was a little boy he loved going to the fabric store to look at the new novelty fabrics.  His favorites were superheroes, sports and anything with animals.  I still have an unfinished Pokemon quilt I started for him 15 years ago! He would have loved our October charity bee block, using a simple square novelty print surrounded by a border of blue or green.  Super fast and easy .. make a bunch!
