Some Craft Books for Gardeners


Garden-related crafts offer gardeners unique ways to decorate their home. For gardeners who sew or quilt, here are some inspirational books.

“Hearts and Tulips-Appliqué Masterpiece” by Margaret Docherty was released by American Quilter’s Society. This is the third in the Appliqué Masterpiece series by the author. Folk art never goes out of style, and gardeners who quilt are going to love these 42 original designs.

For each design, this has full size templates, a list of fabrics, and step by step instructions for doing the appliqué and embroidery. The author also suggests uses for each block. The featured quilt project uses 36 of the blocks as well as an appliquéd border.

This project has easy to follow color illustrated instructions with color layouts, a list of fabrics and supplies, and suggested quilting pattern for the background. This title covers all of the basic quilting and sewing techniques.

If you sew, you can decorate with garden fabrics. “Material World-Home Décor Projects for the Fabric Obsessed” by Cat Wei was released by Quarry Books. This is based on Wei’s DIY Network’s Material Girls show. It features inspirational ideas and 50 projects from 20 world famous designers.

This has all sorts of useful and decorative items for the home. There are items for every room in the house. Whatever sort of items you might need can be found here. Store your garden files and garden seeds in style with the hanging file folders made of floral fabrics or in the beautiful floral print boxes.

Floral related projects include a kimono flowered table runner, a water lily table runner, a dahlia pillow, and a shower curtain with ferns. Surround yourself with floral curtains, and other items throughout the house. For each of the projects, this has a list of tools, supplies, materials, and easy to follow, step by step instructions.

Throughout the book are boxes with quick tips. There are templates and an illustrated glossary of stitches and techniques. This also has profiles of the designers.
