I’m not gonna lie. I have never seen — in person, in real life — what we always see represented as a beehive.

Have you?

My husband, brother-in-law, and I were sitting in my studio, admiring this quilt hanging on my design wall. We all agreed that we’ve never actually seen this type of hive in person. I was telling my brother-in-law how the addition of the entrance on this hive came later on, after my husband told me that it looked like a steaming pile of …you know.

Nice, huh? 😒 (Don’t judge him TOO harshly; he was just talking about the hive itself, not my work.)

Then I showed my sister-in-law, and she suggested the addition of the door or entrance to make it look less, ahem, pile-like. LOL. Oh my, I never thought there’d be this much potty-talk while writing about quilts! And, for what it’s worth, I’ve never thought that’s what it looked like.

Anyway, as usual, I’ve made y’all a PDF pattern (download here), and video tutorial to teach you how to do a lazy daisy stitch, which is really just a single “link” of a chain stitch. So nothing too complicated.
