“Oh Beehave”

Oh Beehave is the Melbourne Modern Quilt Guild’s first Quilting Bee. My month has kicked off the Bee and I asked for these square blocks with a 6inch central square made up of geometric shapes such as triangles, squares and rectangles, and two borders. I provided 6 5 inch charm squares, a strip of brown fabric, and a scrappy border strip and asked everyone to choose the width of their two borders themselves.

 

The first three blocks I pieced to give examples of what I was hoping to receive.

And I have received 3 more back so far, and there’s still 2 weeks until the deadline :)

Apart from the brown solid and the kei honeycomb dots all the fabrics came from my scrap pile.
