After our very successful flag-waving in April, we now invite you to the peace of your garden and whole different colour pallette.

Our theme "Pick It From the Garden in May" is a chance for us to let our imaginations run wild.

For those of us in the northern hemisphere, it is spring... flowers are beginning to appear at last. For those of you in the southern hemisphere it is fall and harvest time... so for all of us wherever we live, the garden offers unlimited inspiration for squares.

Do you love doing flowers??? Are you more inspired by fruits and veggies?? Do you like the ‘critters’ in your garden (caterpillars, butterflies, bugs)?.Does May make you think of dancing around a May-pole?? Are you a ‘Plain Jane’ square-maker??

Whatever you are... let the colours of your garden be your inspiration... lavenders, purples, yellows, oranges, reds, pinks... there’s no end to what we can do.

Once again, we are asking that you post photos of your squares, both in the Photo section and here in this discussion, to inspire us all

Mary Lokken has volunteered to set up a Flickr page for us where all the photos can be assembled. The address is

Let’s make May a "blooming good" month... I can’t wait to see what you creative souls come up with.

Four fruits.. we haven't even seen blossoms here in Canada yet, but they must be picking these fruits somewhere in the world!

A flower and a ladybug!
Well, it's a pompom dressed up as a ladybug.


Kiwi Fruit and Watermelon


Here are my First "Pick it from the Garden" squares. I had some left overs from the "Lovely in Lilac" blanket that I thought were "Flower" colours (Lilac, Pink and Blue). I also found a simple crocheted flower tutorial on You tube (link below) and here is the result!

I am really happy with these, the added flower detail makes them look much prettier I think. The crocheted flower was a lot of fun to make too, I can see myself doing quite a few of these!

A flower and a skunk!


It was supposed to be a porcupine, but it looks more like a skunk...


When will I be as tall as a Sunflower???

Citrus - orange, lemon, lime.  I do not like this square because every time I look at it, that kids' song "Oranges and lemons, the bells of St. Clemens" starts playing in my head and it gets stuck there for hours.. and I walk around humming it..... It's driving me nuts!!!

These are SO pretty, Maggie!

Love the hat!

Gorgeous hat, Sue... and definitely in keeping with the May Challenge!!!

sweet!  I love it!


Love that caterpillar... the kids will too!!
