with a fun garden theme.

Here are the May blocks

Flower Box
Block 7
May's pieced block

Click HERE for the pattern.

I design this pieced quilt block to show off a focus fabric in the large center.
I have lots of floral in my Riley Blake Botanique fabrics for this quilt and can't wait to make another one of these blocks to show them off.

Bath Time
Block 8
May's applique block

Click here for the pattern.

Every garden needs a bird bath and my irises are blooming. 
 I designed another bird for this one but went with the pretty birds instead.  I will make another with my funny bird later in the month.
I used my  Riley Blake Botanique fabrics, Aurifil thread, and Thermoweb Heat n Bond lite for this block.  The bird bath fabric is from a bundle of Riley Blake solids.

I'm enjoying the variety of blocks in this BOM and the skills needed to complete the applique, which is not a technique I've used in the past. Looking forward to the coming months' designs.
