Book Description

Quilters can finally create their ideal landscape with no watering required! Use Amy Friend's 40 adaptable 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 colourful 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 customisable these blocks can be. It's perfectly pretty patchwork!

Quilting has become much prettier with this book by talented designer Amy Friend.

Each of the 40 blocks, comprise of flowers, leaves and petals, which can be mixed and matched to make a beautiful quilt, pillows or wall hanging.

I loved the variety of the designs, they each compliment the other, and depending on your fabric choice, you can achieve a contemporary or vintage vibe. There is a huge amount of templates included, each one needs to be photocopied and enlarged. Advice is given on cutting your fabric, placing your blocks together and there are some fabulous tips on how to get your 'Garden' looking good.

Not only is this book great for quilting ideas, it is also a fun and interesting read. From the introduction to the acknowledgements Amy let's us in on her expertise and how the outdoors sparks her creativity.
