Honey Pot FPP Quilt Block

The Honey Pot FPP Quilt Block pdf pattern is the perfect compliment to the Flying Bumble Bee and Hanging Beehive quilt block patterns. They are all great options if you are making a Spring or Summer Garden themed patchwork and quilting project.

With this Honey Pot pdf quilt block pattern you will get two different block sizes. There’s a 6″ block and a larger 10″ finished block. You also have the option of making the Honey Pot without the label. Plus, if you are a fan of a little hand sewing, you can make a mini EPP honeycomb to add to your unlabelled pot!

It’s not a terribly complicated block to make and it comes together quite quickly. There are a few smaller pieces around the lid of the pot and there are only four places where you might want to match the seams.

The pdf pattern for the Honey Pot quilt block is now available to buy from the website. Once you have checked out you will receive an email with two links. One link is for the pdf instructions (which you don’t have to print if you don’t want to) and the second link is for the tiled pattern pieces.

The pattern pages have been laid out to print on either US Letter or A4 printer paper, so no matter where you live, you can print with confidence. Just remember to check the size of the 1″ test square before starting to sew.

The Honey Pot FPP quilt block pattern has a whole host of great features:

:: Full colour instructions
:: Coloured illustration of the block
:: Two blank diagrams of the Honey Pot, one with the label and one without. There are also placement lines for the optional mini EPP honeycomb. You’ll also find a useful key so you can plan your colours and fabric placement
:: Construction diagram to help with putting the block together and where to match seams.
:: Step-by-step illustrated guide to constructing the block (with or without the label)
:: Digitally drawn pattern pieces for accuracy, plus a 1″ test square so you can check your printer settings before starting to sew
:: Hexagon templates in two sizes for the optional mini honeycomb
:: FPP pattern pieces that have been reversed so that you make a block exactly the same as the picture
:: All pattern pieces are arranged so they print on A4 or US Letter paper
:: Pattern pieces have a patterned/non-solid fill so that you minimise printer ink usage

For my sample blocks I used some great Crackle prints by Kathy Schmitz for Moda. I really loved the texture it gave to the pot itself, but don’t you think that it would also look great with blenders and batiks?

I designed this block to be used as a Honey Pot, but who am I to tell you what to put in your pot? You could use it for jam, lemon curd or even some delicious pickle!

If you’re going for a jar of preserve rather than honey then wouldn’t the body of the jar look wonderful with some fruit themed fabric? You could even embroider on the name of the produce ‘inside’ the jar on the label!

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!
