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. Stitches are divided into broad groups and include stitch diagrams, color photos, and suggestions for use. Highly recommended for public libraries.
