Hanging Beehive FPP Quilt Block

The Hanging Beehive FPP Quilt Block pdf pattern is a wonderful block that you can incorporate into projects with a Spring, Garden, or perhaps a Farm theme. This delightful design is going to look great in your project.

This block will look great on its own but of course it also compliments the Flying Bumble Bee block perfectly.

With this Hanging Beehive pdf quilt block pattern you will get two different block sizes. There’s a 6″ block and a larger 10″ finished block. Both are great for any number of patchwork and quilting projects.

There are six places where you might want to match the seams. It may sound like a lot, but don’t worry, there is a handy illustration on page 5 of the instructions that shows you exactly where these points are….just look for the green circles!

:: Pattern pieces are laid out to on A4 or US Letter paper
:: Pattern pieces have a patterned/non-solid fill so that you minimise printer ink usage

In terms of colours that you can use on your Hanging Beehive quilt block you could go for the two coloured version like I have (blenders work really well with this design), or you could try out using just the one colour for the beehive. As I do so often, I chose a light blue background, but I think it also looks nice with a green or a more neutral beige. The choice is completely yours…don’t be swayed by me!

Which door will you choose?

There are two different door options for you to choose between. There is a round(ish) door and an arched door. Which one will you choose?

To be brutally honest I couldn’t decide which door style I preferred, which is why I included both of them in this pattern!

There are of course the pattern pieces for both styles in both block sizes, but I have also included colouring pages for the two different options. I’ve also shown both door styles in the construction illustrations to help keep you on track.

Here are some links to a few of the tools that I use when doing FPP…I really wouldn’t be without them!

Add a Quarter Ruler

I use my add a quarter ruler (and my add an eighth ruler) every time I do FPP!

This glue gets used every time I add my first piece of fabric (and for so many other things!)

Clover Glass Head Quilters Pins

 Pym glass head quilting pins, for me, are the ideal length and thickness for patchwork!

Sewing clips are always useful for so many different projects, not just patchwork!
