Whimsy Garden Sew Along Row Three

Who does not love a fun sew along with friends? 

Earlier in the year (pre-pandemic), my friend, Amy Friend from During Quiet Time asked if I would be interested in participating in her upcoming Sew Along for her newest book Petal + Stem. Of course I said YES because of OMG! SO! MUCH!PRETTY!!!!!!


The quilt that was chosen was Whimsy Garden. It is a row quilt with four sections. I stitched up section 3! 

Here is a photo of the full finished Whimsy Garden Quilt by Amy Friend. It is really lovely and would be a perfect addition to any home or a fantastic quilt for a little's room.


The paper pieced patterns include a variety of different leaves, blooms, adorable critters, and quilts themselves. There are no rules to this book other than to have tons of fun! 

Amy has tips and tricks on her website to help you confidently grow your garden without pulling weeds (seam ripping 😂). She encourages you to make the quilt completely personalized with your favorite colors, stem, and foliage. The possibilities are almost endless. 

There are other projects in the book for you to sew if you don't have the time right now to sew a whole quilt. My favorite is the Farmer's Market Tote. 

Sunflowers are my number ONE favorite flower with a close second being poppies. 

I will be making it as a cushion cover instead of a tote to add to my Summer sofa 🌻🌻🌻



Each week has also had something everyone loves...GIVEAWAYS!  You can follow along with the giveaway action by visiting During Quiet Time.




So grab the Petal + Stem Book, your favorite fabrics, and a REALLY good Netflix show (I chose Jane the Virgin) and you will have a carefree garden in no time!!!!

Thank you Kim for fitting this in even in the pandemic world. I hope it was a pleasant distraction to sew pretty flowers. I loved Jane the Virgin! I paper pieced quite a bit to that show!
