Not the best photo...pity about the camera strap. I was lucky enough to be the recipient for October's blocks for The Beehive. I decided that a stack of fabrics I mostly had collected previously and were destined for a quilt for my 6 year old son should actually be cut up! Revolutionary really! Especially a good idea before he turns 16!
Really he is still 6 and I hope this quilt is finished by his 7th birthday!! It is based on the Retrostarbust in the Material Obsession 1 book and uses some great Prints Charming fabric amongst others. One of the benefits of living in Sydney's inner west! The clever Beehivers sewed up the BIG blocks for this quilt. It is very vibrant.
