If you feel like you have made a million geometric and pinwheel quilts and are ready to create a unique and interesting quilt, you will absolutely adore the patterns provided in My Enchanted Garden by Gretchen Gibbons. This book is full of enchanting, whimsical, adorable, and woodland quilt squares. You can create an entire paradise of flora and fauna on just one quilt with the quilt squares detailed in this book. No matter what squares you settle on, you are sure to craft a quilt unlike any quilt you have crafted before.

The animals and flowers on these quilt squares are unique, simple, and absolutely adorable. Rather than focusing on one central piece, many of these precious patterns display a scene. On one square you can see a squirrel munching on an acorn and a deer grazing; on another you can see birds perched on a flowering tree. With so much going on in these designs, a quilt created from the appliques in Gibbons’ book will surely become the focal part of a room.

One great thing about this book is that it can be used over and over again. The quirky animal appliques could be added to a plethora of other projects. You do not have to limit yourself to quilts. In fact, in addition to the quilting squares in this book, there are several other patterns. After you are done quilting, you can make a "Peacock Purse" or a "Run Rabbit Run Pillow." These funky accessories would make fantastic last-minute gifts for a new homeowner.

Whether you are looking to create whimsical wildlife quilts or are just in the mood to add some lovely appliques to already existing projects, My Enchanted Garden by Gretchen Gibbons is filled to the brim with curious and cute appliques, quilting squares, and projects. You will not regret having this collection on your bookshelf.
