Quilters love a well-tended garden almost as much as perfect piecing. Now they can have both!
Quilters can finally create their ideal landscape with no watering required! Use Amy Friend’s 40 adaptable paper pieced flower, stem, and leaf blocks (plus a snail and a butterfly!) to piece together a garden scene in any number of combinations: from tropical greenery using minimal greens and creams to a cottage garden packed with all of the bold hues of summer. Included are six colorful quilt patterns, and a cute tote, designed and pieced by the author to help get readers started with their planning, as well as inspirational digital layouts to showcase just how customizable these blocks can be. Perfectly pretty patchwork!

Started paper piecing again, I did it years ago and didn’t like it, but saw this book and bought it just because the cover was beautiful. I love this book very charming and what a great job at illustrating the way you can make different projects. Wish it came in a spiral book, would have been easier to copy the Pages.. it was packaged beautifully and signed with a note,,,,
This is a beautiful book by Amy! I spent some time with it and love the modules where I may mix and match for a good deal of creative expression. I love that many of the blocks are based on six inch blocks so I may mix in other patterns that I have collected into the mix. I have not decided yet if I will simply jump right in and start making flower blocks and units or take a dive and make a full sized dandelion quilt. I also appreciate receiving an autographed copy. That was a very nice touch!
I have been so excited about this book. I can’t believe how quickly it arrived and it is so beautiful. I can’t wait to start working on some beautiful quilts ♥️ Love the sweet note inside the book as well. Thank you so very much. Xx
I have purchased a number of quilt books in the past. Generally if the book has 2 or more patterns that I'm interested in, I figure it is a value.. I purchased this solely on the cover photo.. Went through the book last night and WOW.. this is the best book I have ever bought.. There is so much inspiration, possibilities, combinations that you can make from these patterns. I'm really looking forward to jumping into this!
