This table runner has been pieced and basted together and set aside because I just couldn't decide how to quilt it. You know how that goes.... The big stitch solution was perfect and I immediately pulled it from the UFO pile and grabbed the perle cotton I had on hand.
It was fast, and it was fun!!! And when I wasn't quilting it, Lucy thought it was the perfect hiding spot to nap.
It was done before I knew it and I added the binding. Double fold binding that is hand stitched down on the back. What a simple solution for this cute table runner.
The bumble bees were hand appliqued, the legs and antennas were machine buttonhole stitched. It is based on a quilt, Honeybee, from the book Winter Rose, by Barbara Brandeburg. After a quick wash, this will be ready to go on my kitchen island.
However, Lucy looks disappointed that her hiding spot is gone. : - )
Great solution and it looks great! I have only done big stitch quilting fun and it was so fast and easy. I really need to do more.ReplyDelete
