Baby Bumble Bee.

Lily, an online quilting buddy had a beautiful baby boy a few weeks ago and although I made a few blocks for the group quilt that Emma whipped up for her, I wanted to make a little something as well for her to hang in his room. So I finished this little bumble bee hanger. Its from that UFO applique wall hanging I found back in June that I had totally forgotten about. Its too horrible to complete by itself but cut up, its looking good. It is the same hanger I got the house block from, its great cutting it up and giving it a new life. The bee is hand blanket stitched, back in the days when I had time to hand blanket stitch! And then machine quilted, a perfect size to practise some crazy swirls and stippling.
