Nothing shows off beautiful stitching and embellishments like the blank canvas of a crazy quilt. Jenny Clouston's gorgeously illustrated primer shows you how to make your own heirloom crazy quilts. Learn which fabrics, threads, and needles to use; how to piece crazy quilt blocks; how to embroider with thread, ribbons, beads, and other embellishments; how to assemble your blocks into a finished quilt; and more. Includes complete instructions for over 100 embroidery, beading, and embellishment stitches; full-size patterns for 9 hexagonal crazy quilt blocks; and 25 stitch keys showing proper stitch placement and thread and needle selection for 25 different blocks.

Author Biography
