Garden Quilt Books


Any time of the year is great for starting those garden quilt projects. Here are some books that will inspire gardeners.
instructions, including a color layout.

“Quilt This-Practical Patterns for Everyday Quilting” by Lynda Smith was published by the American Quilter’s Society. This has over 80 designs in all. This title is one of my favorite garden quilting titles. Eery garden quilter is going to love this title. Garden and plant themed patterns take up nearly half of the book. This title has quilting patterns to suit every situation.

Choices include everything from classical and elegant motifs to repeating geometrical themes and whimsical patterns for children. These quilting patterns are suitable for filling quilting blocks, backgrounds, and quilt borders. They can be done by hand or machine.

This also has basic instructions for using the patterns. This title features full size patterns along with sample layouts and color photos of the completed quilt showing the quilted design.

“Fat Quarter Friendly” from Fons and Porter’s For the Love of Quilting Magazine was published by Leisure Arts. This title is a must have for garden quilters as it features many things that will be of interest to gardeners. All in all, this features 30 of the most popular fat quarter designs that have appeared in the magazine over the years. Among the garden-themed quilts are ones with oak leaves, sunflowers, gorgeous flower baskets, whimsical pink flamingos, and beautiful nosegays.

For each of the quilts, there are color photos of the completed quilt, color layouts, color-illustrated, step by step instructions from start to finish, templates, a list of fabrics, and a cutting chart. In addition, this covers all of the basic quilt techniques, including the different methods of appliqué.

Very suitable for novices, this also explains how to make templates, use rubber stamps on fabrics, and use computers to print quilt blocks and labels.
