Crazy Quilt Stitches" is a comprehensive survey of stitch combinations for crazy quilt embellishment. The easy-to-lay-flat spiral binding is a plus for convenience. A beginner might need to supplement their knowledge on how to execute the basic stitches, but from there you have an excellent inspiration for the variations in stitches so prized by the Victorian crazy quilters. This is a no-nonsense book that is a must for your needlework library.

Dorthy Bond has compiled a huge collection of embroidery stitches she's seen used in crazy quilts. She assumes you can learn how to do the stitches from other sources, although she provides a simple drawing of the steps for each basic stitch. The joy of this book is the wealth of combinations of those basic stitches. No other book on crazy quilt embroidery has offered me the same trigger to creativity that this book provides. It is spiral bound, ensuring that it will lie flat while you work from it. A great collection at a truly bargain price.

Ten stars!! This little brown book is a staple in my personal library and often travels with me as my first choice for design inspiration. It is a sad day to learn that it has gone out of print. May it only be temporary -- unless a second edition is on its way! Dreaming...
Yes, this and Carole Samples' Treasury of Crazy Quilt Stitches are the best books ever printed on the subject. No fluff, all substance. Each book is a wonderful complement to the other.
Thank you, Dorothy and Carole, for your contributions to the world of CQ embroidery.

This little book of embroidery stitches is so worth its price. I got it to make varied stitches for a faux crazy quilt that I made out of cotton (versus velvets etc). It has my favorite (which is why I bought the book) of a line with little birds sitting on it. Just too cute...

It had very stitch you could think off but the instructions were not good you had to do to much guessing on you won. I have found more convenient instructions on a laminated folded pocket guide copyright by Leisure Arts, Inc. [...] $4.95.

This book is a fabulous source of stitches and stitch combinations. The pictures are clear and precise, the ideas numerous. No hand decorative stitcher should be without this book in their collection.

This the one book that everyone else refers to. It was the first book to document more than 1000 crazy quilt stitch patterns on antique quilts.

This is a great collection of stitches and the illustrations are crisp. It is NOT a book that teaches you HOW to make the stitches however. It does show great combinations and will expand my "toolbox" noticably

A huge collection of stitches and variations, simple pictures and lots of ideas. This book is a great addition to a crafter's bookshelf.
