In Our Garden Blocks

Have you seen the awesome blocks Amy at Sew Incredibly Crazy designed for the In Our Garden Blog Hop?  She posted them February 1st.  You can find them here.

I made my applique block this afternoon.  I think it turned out so stinkin' cute!

I used my portable block design board to help keep my pieces organized and together.  You can read about the design board here.

I really went out of my box on the background fabric.  This gray stripe is definitely something I wouldn't have normally used.  I was really hoping it was just a little more subtle on the stripe but I think it turned out okay in the end.

Almost all of my pieces for the applique are from the Timeless Treasures fat eight pack I received.  I just love the "Pop"  bundle they sent me.  Timeless Treasures is one of fabulous sponsors in the In Our Garden Blog hop.  

 After I cut my pieces out, I laid them randomly in about the area they might go on my block that was laying on the board.

I arranged them to my liking, then I took the board and all to the ironing board ironed them down so that I could applique them.  Didn't it turn out cute?  

I got the pieced block cut out but didn't get it together before the Super Bowl Game came on.  I personally don't watch the game but the cheese dip, margaritas, buffalo chicken roll, and commercials were calling my name.  You'll have to come back tomorrow to see the pieced block.  



  1. Super, super cute in those POPs of colors.

  2. Yours did turn out super cute ! I haven't really sat a the machine since before Christmas....maybe today.

  3. That is definitely "stinkin' cute!" The background looks great with it!

  4. Nicely done. I love your addition of a fly flying trail. I added a frog tongue to mine.
