Overview

Hardworked motifs and patterns of patch interiors are at the heart of a beautiful crazy quilt, and here's the first definitive book on these surface embellishments. Let author J. Marsha Micher show you all the secrets…everything you need to know about creating your own designs. Inside you'll learn how to transfer the original designs given, from flowers and animals to the alphabet and beyond - with techniques such as silk ribbon embroidery, punch needle, tambour work, beading, and cross-stitch. Included are a review of crazy quilting basics, embroidery stitches, and surface design techniques covered in her previous books.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Michler is the author of several books on crazy quilting, including the Magic of Crazy Quilting, an excellent introduction to the craft. This volume concentrates on surface embellishments for crazy quilts, teaching a variety of techniques that include appliqu , beading, punch-needle embroidery, couching, cross-stitch, creating dimensional clothing, making fabric flowers, outline stitchery, shadow work, silk ribbon embroidery, tambour work, trapunto, white work, and wool embroidery. Each technique is described and illustrated in some detail, but at the heart of the book are hundreds of motifs clearly outlined on light paper so they can easily be traced and used in making crazy quilts. Although the steps in the process are reviewed here briefly, readers new to the craft will want to start with Michler's earlier book or with Judith Baker Montano's Crazy Quilt Handbook. An excellent choice for all public library quilting collections. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
