May In Our Garden Blocks

I finished up the May pieced In Our Garden block a day after it was published. 
Next I prepped the Heat and Bond lite for the applique and set them aside.  I finally took some time to fuse them last week, and had a couple of hours to sew them Sunday evening.

Still digging through my Riley Blake hoard stash, but did pull my favorite batik out for the iris, and a fun blue for the water in the bird bath.  I was also way to lazy to try to do little tiny black applique circles, so I cheated and did little tiny buttons instead for the eyes.

Since I was working the applique' I decided to also pull out April's bonus pattern provided by Amy at Sew Incredibly Crazy, and get it arranged and sewn.

I am really enjoying the patterns in this blog hop!

Hmm...guess I was lazy with the eyes too - I used french knots :) Yours are beauties, like the batik touches!

I just love your blocks. That pieced block is adorable. And your irises inspired mine (hope you don't mind). :)
