Old MacDonald is surrounded by chicks and the words to the folk song. Prairie points surround the larger border. This is a larger quilt good for draping across a crib or bed or snuggling in for a nap. It could be used for a large wall hanging. You can choose to embroider the words or write them using a paint pen. There are tutorials on my blog, Buzzing and Bumbling, for my method of applique as well as an easy method of dying your own flesh tones using coffee or tea. Check them out to see how easy this can be! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY simple sewing and quilting, simple embroidery, applique SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS approximately 60" x 54"

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 where you can keep up with my tutorials, tips, and other postings.
