In Our Garden Block Of The Month Blocks #3 And #4

Amy at Sew Incredibly Crazy has definitely created a fun blog hop for all of us
with flowers, critters, and other fun garden happenings for you to sew.
Thanks, Amy!


The first day of every month a designer will be releasing two patterns.
One pieced block and one applique block, all with a garden theme.

The garden blocks I designed have blooming flowers, a happy bird who's ready for 
warmer weather, and a worm (or snake depending on where you live.) It's a very busy garden!

The Busy Garden blocks


Pieced Block #3


Appliqued Block #4


Want to make these blocks? 
I've got a PDF available for free this month at Craftsy HERE or 
 email me that you'd like a copy and I'll send a PDF to you:


I was so lucky to get fabric from Riley Blake to sew with...thanks Riley Blake!


My fabric stash is full of their fabric, so this gives me a chance to use it in my blocks.
Chevrons, dots, blenders, stars, gingham, and stripes...I love them all!
