I have been fascinated with quilting since I was a little girl sleeping under a Dutch girl quilt my grandmother made. Now that I?m a grandmother myself, I market my original and whimsical designs under the B. Bumble & Co. name. Most of my patterns are designed for a simple freezer paper applique technique, but will work with any method. They are not complicated and most are easy enough for beginners.
I have a blog at http://buzzingandbumbling.blogspot.com/ where you can keep up with my tutorials, tips, and other postings.
This little quilt depicts the Eensy-Weensy (or Itsy-Bitsy) spider from the nursery rhyme. The web is quilted in after making the "spokes" with a running stitch of metallic thread. The words to the nursery rhyme are embroidered along the border along with vines and leaves. This is basically the same pattern as the Halloweensy Spider, but with variations in the borders. The easy applique method can be seen in a tutorial on my blog, Buzzing and Bumbling, although any method, including machine applqiue, can be used. This is a pretty quilt for a nursery or girl's room!
