A Bee Happy Finish

 Back in early November, I shared a quick project I was making for a neighbor who wanted a gift for a friend who keeps bees.





She wanted me to keep it simple and relatively small.  I pulled out a panel I had that was filled with some fun bee panels and she picked a couple she liked.




I then went to my scraps and found some coordinating bits that I cut to 2.5" square.



I found a nice gray fabric for the backing and quilted it in a grid in a serpentine stitch.  I used a black fabric for the binding to match the frames around the panels.

My neighbor loved it and has already taken delivery of it.  I am glad I was able to use some of my exisitng stash to make something special for someone.

I know a few readers said they have the same panel.  I still have quite a bit of it left and may make a few more like this in the future.  This was definitely a quick and rewarding little project!

Happy December everyone!

That will BEE a very sweet gift for your neighbor's friend, Cynthia, and bonus points for using up some scraps and stash fabrics on the project!

I like that, and appreciate that your machine will do a serpentine stitch... mine is an older model or just does not have that option.
