Buzz...Buzz...Buzz.... Another UFO Flys Away!

I had an Aha Moment (a moment of sudden realization, inspiration, insight, recognition, or comprehension) a few weeks ago.  I was reading a blog where the quilter had just finished big stitching a quilt.... "easy to do..... fast.... nice result.... etc."  And then it hit me.  It was the perfect solution to a table runner I had started .... um... four years ago..??  (Yikes!)
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. : - ) 

Happy Stitching!



  1. 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.
