May, one of my favorite month's of the year for so many different reasons. I get to play in my garden again, nothing makes me happier (besides quilting) then playing in the dirt and planting flowers and tending to my gardens. It's also my birthday this month. (Although it doesn't have the same charm as the number gets bigger.... lol) With birthdays, comes cake! I'm looking forward to having some cake. I will have a tutorial posted on the Doodle Blog along with links to the pattern included each month. The monthly patterns will be FREE during the month that they are announced, after that they will be available for a small fee. In December we will piece the sections together and put on borders and finishing touches. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY machine or hand applique SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 10 1/2" x 10 1/2"
