This is, indeed, a complete resource for both the beginning and intermediate quilter wishing to indulge in crazy quilting, that 19th-century amalgam of patchwork, appliqu, and embroidery that is enjoying renewed popularity today. Michler takes the reader step by step through the creation of a crazy quilt and in the process teaches four different piecing methods, 15 embellishments, and more than 1000 embroidery stitch variations.
