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 cute quilt is a large wall hanging (or a nice nap sized quilt or bed throw) that depicts Three Blind Mice from the nursery rhyme. They are joyfully strolling across the center panel and the words to the rhyme are playfully written in the inner border. The colors can easily be changed to fit your needs. You can also leave off the words or the outer border and make a crib quilt.
There is a tutorial on my blog, Buzzing and Bumbling, that shows my easy method of applique, although any method, including machine applique, can be used for this quilt.
