I like the spiral binding: it enables me to lay the book flat while following the instructions.

This book is the BEST that I have found on crazy quilting! I have quite a collection of books on this subject and if I could keep only one, this would be it! Beautiful, well illustrated, great explanations. It has all the answers. And to make it even better, it is ring-bound so that it lies flat which makes it so easy to use. This book gets an A+ (from a strict grader)!

A lot of information is packed in this compact, spiral-bound book. Its smaller size makes it ideal to pack in a tote. Marsha knows her medium well. Lots of eye-candy, good instructions, lots of useful instruction.

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.

THIS BOOK HAS GONE IMMEDIATELY INTO MY TRAVEL-TIME CRAFT BAG!
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.

Excellent book with clear instructions and drawings. I like that the book can lay flat so that one can follow the instructions easily. The size is also great as one can travel with it easily. A great buy, I highly recommend it.

I bought this book because I am making my first crazy quilt. The embellishing techniques explained in this book are easy to understand and the pictures are inspirational. I can't imagine making a quilt without this guide book.

I loved this book! I have several books with crazy quilting stitches, but this covers so much more than just the embroidery. The spiral binding (inside the hard cover) makes it easy to keep the book open to view directions while stitching. I'll be using this as the text for a class I teach in Crazy Quilting.

Glad I found this. I needed the info about finishing and backing as I have not been able to find it yet. Do not know if same info is in Judy Montano's first crazy quilt book, as I do not own it. The guide to stitches is not as comprehensive as Judy Montano's new small book that is just about stitches. I like the size. It is easy to carry around for reference so I can take projects on the road. It is perfect for what I wanted and needed right now.
