This sweet wall hanging has been a big hit with churches who want something for their children's wing as well as with families with young children. The verse is from Isaiah 40:11, "The Lord tends his flock like a shepherd. He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart." Because the applique is large, it is very easy to do either by hand or machine. A tutorial is available on my blog showing the easy method of applique I use. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY simple quilting and applique, embroidery, basic sewing SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Finished quilt approximately 42" x 36"

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.
