2023 Block of the Month Program
This Garden is All A-Buzz! Create a garden filled with the sweetest little beehives you have ever
seen! There are five individual primitive style Beehive blocks, each with its own theme and made from “In Stitches” & “Woolie Flannel” fabric from Maywood Studio. There are 6 patterns to complete the quilt. The Beehives, Checkerboard Setting Blocks, Flower Garden & Leaf Borders are quick and are super easy pieced and appliqued.
Finished blocks are 12” x 12”. The assembled quilt is 62” x 56”. This is a great way to build your skills in piecing and applique. Do just one or all of them!
We will do a block every month and then assemble the quilt during the final month.
The Sea Island Quilters Guild has 20 pattern sets available for members who wish to participate and sign up in February. Members will need to purchase their own materials and the Honey Bee Lane Accessory Fabric Packet, if desired. Available for $12 at Honey Bee Lane (quiltcompany.com).
This program is for SIQ members only. Contact Andrea W or Cindy H for more details or to sign up!

Featuring the gorgeous gem collection created by textile artist, MJ Kinman, you’ll learn an innovative
method for paper piecing using freezer paper, not foundation paper piecing. The freezer paper pieces
can be reused, so no tearing away paper. Templates are applied to the RIGHT side of fabric, so no confusing reverse piecing and less fabric waste. Pick one or more of your favorite gems to make. As great for beginners as those seeking to add a new skill to their quilting quiver. Easy and fun results!
Kits: For this workshop, Ms. Kinman has generously agreed to provide kits at a discount as part of a group order. The price includes the pattern and a coordinating fabric bundle of Paintbrush Studio Fabrics to make (1) 17” square block. Each pattern includes instructions, a fully coded freezer paper pattern, and a regular paper pattern to use as a key. The cost for kits varies ($25-30) with the number of different fabrics needed to create each gemstone.
Whether you register for the workshop or not, can’t choose just one, or wish to try this kit on your own, feel free to take advantage of this opportunity get the materials you need to try a new technique.
