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 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!
