In the Garden Block of the Month Has Begun!

The first two free blocks in the new blog hop this year with a Block of the Month flavor hosted by Amy of Sew Incredibly Crazy have been released!  You can find the patterns here.
 These are my versions of blocks one and two...made with Riley Blake Fabrics.  I used mostly Calico Days but block one also uses 30s Mini Petals in purple and block 2 has Cottage Newsprint in Pink and OohLa La Dot in Aqua added in.
 A closer look at the cutesy frog Amy designed...I have a bit of trouble following a pattern to the letter and ended up adding a small butterfly to introduce the fabric from the first block.

In my actual garden news...hope to have better to report next month but the daffodils are trying to reach up through the soil as we have had unseasonably warm weather.  You can see a sprinkling of snow in the flowerbed but we haven't had enough to coat the ground in quite awhile.  I have been scolding these silly flowers as the weather is bound to change to thick snow before Spring...they are not listening and keep climbing higher!!

Those blocks are just delightful!!! I though I may have a go at this but with everything else on I think I'll have to leave it - but will look forward to seeing other's interpretations.

Great blocks. I love the frog design.

Love that you used word fabric inside the frog's mouth!

Cute blocks. Love the fabrics that you used.

I tend to wander off on pattern instructions, too, but stuck to the plan this time. I wish I'd added a butterfly! :O)

These blocks are so cute, Kris! I like the added butterfly. I am sure it is busy chatting away with the frog. Mother nature most probably whispered some secret about the upcoming weather to the daffodils, of course they are not listening to you :)
