The Beehive - Spiral Cabin for Karlyn

October is our last month for the Beehive and we ended with a wowzer fun block. Karlyn sent the best fabrics to play with. Heather Ross, Heather Bailey, Denyse Schmidt, Lecien... so much fun.

 

Her block style was inspired by Aneela's block from Fat Quarterly, but it's a quilt concept that's been around for quite some time. It's a pretty straight forward, yet fun block to make. Add a strip, trim it wonky, work around the circle. Add more strips as they feel right.

 

This block is 12.5" square. I wasn't sure if 12" included seam allowances or now so I erred on the big side so Karlyn can trim if needed.

 

Hooray!
