Beehive block for November

This is a close up of the 15.5"x10.5" block I completed for Meg for November's Beehive. I have to say I was initially skeptical of enjoying abstract piecing and I loved doing it!! If I made a mistake it didn't matter, I just made it work and I was pretty happy with the outcome. It also helped that Meg chose some gorgeous fabrics, especially the Joel Dewberry floral silhouette- my fave. I might have to get some for my Beehive!!
Under Meg's instructions I managed to iron most seams open- no small feat for so much small piecing.
Meg I hope you enjoy this quilt, I loved doing your block and it taught me alot that I had never tried before!!
