Millie is Here!

I gave you a little sneak peek of Millie a couple of weeks ago, but she is finally really done! I just got the binding and photography done over the weekend. I love her- such a sweet little garden girl... and so wise, too... we should all remember to Bee Happy and Bee Joyful! I did machine applique and some simple hand embroidery on both the wall hanging and coordinating quilt. The border of the quilt has lots of little bees "buzzing" around.
The pattern is available here on my website. It has detailed instructions for both the wall hanging and quilt.

And, of course, I am now working on Tillie and hope to have her done in a couple of weeks (I would really love to have her done this week, but I have to be realistic here....)

The weekend here was gloriously warm (in the 60's!), and managed to melt away what was left of the snow. Yippee! Now of course everything is muddy, but who cares, weather in the 60's!!!

Happy Monday!


  1. Millie is very cute! You are a great designer.
    Have a Blessed Day,

  2. Oh my goodness. This is so cute. What level would this be for? I am just a beginner and for sure have never used a pattern but I love it.

  3. Valerie, I am so glad you like her. This project could be done by an experienced or confident beginner- i.e. if you have some sewing experience and have completed at least one quilting project and know the basics of piecing, etc. I would suggest starting with the quilt, and then doing the wall hanging. I provide a lot of detailed instructions and illustrations- for me, nothing is more frustrating than a pattern that reads like Greek with no pictures to explain it all!!
    Of course, if you have any questions, you can always email me and I'd be happy to help in any way I can.

    Happy Sewing!

  4. Both quilts are so cute! . . . But I must admit my very favorite part is Tillie's knees! Too cute!
    xo, Bren

  5. I'm lovin' Millie's cute knees! She is adorable....and so is that bee!
    (hey, I just rhymed!)

    I'm a little jealous of your weather though...we are in the 30's and had some snow last weekend.
