I am a dedicated crazy-quilter, too. Of all the books available on the craft, I would highly recommend this new book. Hers, plus Carole Samples' "Treasury of Crazy Quilt Stitches" are the two must-have books for any serious reference.
IT'S A TERRIFIC RESOURCE AND THE SIZE AND BINDING MAKE IT IDEAL FOR USE ON TRIPS.
THE AUTHOR IS SO KNOWLEDGEABLE AND EXPLAINS THINGS SO WELL THAT I'VE COME TO ADMIRE HER WORK AND USE HER BOOKS FOR REFERENCES WHEN I CRAZY-QUILT, WHICH I LOVE TO DO AT HOME BY MACHINE OR ON THE ROAD BY HAND. THIS IS IDEAL FOR PEOPLE AT EITHER BEGINNER OR INTERMEDIATE LEVEL.
For me, the most valuable thing about this book is that it is spirally bound, which means it will lay flat on my lap, or on my desk, or on my car seat, where ever I may be stitching. That's really important to me! Next, I have found it very easy to navigate my way through this book as it is compiled in an order that even a crazy quilter can follow!! (Pun intended!). After the usual introduction and basics, J.Marsha has investigated ten ways to patch a crazy quilt. There are options to crazy patch a landscape, using strip piecing, a collage method and stained glass just a few. From there you head into a wonderful gallery of achievements, some truly beyond belief. Then Embroidery by Hand is discussed, particularly mentioned are very useful embroidery tips.
From here there is a wonderful large section on Stitch combinations and variations and I think this book stands alone in it's presentation of stitches and how they can be used in a crazy quilting setting. From Back Stitches to Straight stitches (A-Z) and everything in between, each stitch technique is illustrated, and then variations are explored, creating very new and different patterns to inspire.Read more ›
