This is a lovely book - just one quilt but worth buying the book for that. JC provides templates for a number of crazy quilt patches - in case you can't invent any yourself! - and then shows how to use different embroidery stitches in each one. All the embroidery stitches are shown in detail - which is a great bonus if you haven't got a good memory for stitches. Each block is different - so inspiring. To make time to do this quilt I am quite prepared to go without sleep! Fabulous book - if you love crazy quilting it will really inspire you.
This book is brilliant. To a total "how to", with such clear and well thought out structure and referencing...it is a joy! The author says anyone can crazy quilt...and I think with this book they can; it's what I've got started with. I adore just looking through and planning what I'm going to do next. Excellent...if every craft book was as clear and well thought out as this (and with such superb photographs) I'd take on a new craft every month.
it is very informative explaining hand embroidery to the novice embroiderer with clear insructions. Many ideas to expand on for the experienced embroiderer. No person informed me of the book I came across it on Amazon when I was looking for a different book, I am highly delighted with my copy of foolproof crazy quilting.
A beautiful and inspirational book. Clear explanations and instructions for all the steps. My quilting friends are enthusiastic and going to order copies for themselves! Our groups is already sorting out different fabrics to have a go!
I love this book. First of all it is absolutely beautiful to look at - Jennifers stitching is perfect and very inventive giving lots of ideas. The stitch maps are excellent and the stitch guides very clear. Highly reccomended.
