Bee My Honey Table Runners or Window Valances { x Two }

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!

I love to collect odd works of art for the shelves above my windows in the living room.  The weirder the better!  The tall chicken in the red skirt, bowtie and hat was a gift from one of my sisters!  
Oh, yes, we're here to talk about quilts!

Two matching Bee My Honey table runners or window valances.   
 They coordinate with the Twisted Irish Chain Lap Quilt I recently made.
Isn't Mrs.Owl so happy?! 
 The HUGE red B no longer resides on the shelf.  She recently jumped off in the middle of the night, scaring the dog to death, and I can't quite figure out how to get her to stand up without falling down again.

Quilt Stats { x 2 }:
Pattern:  None really, 16 patches with some half-square triangles thrown in.
Size:  12.5" x 52.5" generous table runner length
Fabric:  Bee My Honey by Moda and Kona Snow
Batting:  Cotton
Backing:  Solid white with wide rod pocket for hanging
Quilting:  Allover small meandering stitch in white thread on Mrs.Bernina, my old 830 which was my grandmother's.
Binding:  Double fold, attached by machine in a Bee My Honey multicolor coordinate.
Value:  Won't you Bee My Honey?

I like all your unique decorations! Maybe you could nail your red B to a wide piece of painted wood to give it more stability. Thanks for sharing.

We have a number of Rs around our house - I love them! I also love what you've done with these runners. So fresh and fun.

Would some double-sided tape somewhere on the letter help with midnight leaps?

I like to put a little bit of plasticine, or play-doh, witch you can remove easily and if it matches the red on your letter you won't even know its there.
