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 (
