The Magic of Crazy Quilting...by Marsha Michler
This is a beautiful crazy quilting book by J. Marsha Michler.
I have had this book for quite a while, and apart from looking at the beautiful pictures over and over again, I have not really tried any of the stitch combinations....I seem to be stuck doing the same seam combinations that I'm used to doing and love.
This is what it says on the back of the book:
* There are clear instructions for completing an entire
* Four different piecing methods
* 1.000's of stitch variations
* Six new projects to try.
There are lots of coloured pictures of old vintage quilts.
There's a chapter called "Finishing Touches" with several methods for finishing a crazy quilt, adding borders, plain borders and mitred corners, and lots more.
At the back is a page on the meaning of flowers...every flower you could possibly think of is there.
I think it's a great book full of inspirational CQ and well worth a look at.
After looking at the book again it has renewed my enthusiasm to try some of the stitch combinations....
