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! 


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

  2. Just the cutest blocks--love those little birds--just darling!! Nice fabrics hugs, Julierose

  3. I'm loving these blocks, too, and yours are adorable! Buttons work for me!

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

  5. Love your blocks! Just darling fabrics and colors for the patterns.
