Award-winning artist Pillsbury details her own process for making crazy quilts and outlines basic instructions for a first-timer. Step-by-step directions for a variety of stitches, beading, and ribbon embroidery fill the bulk of the book . There are beautiful close-up photos throughout, mostly of Pillsbury s work but also showing the details of some historical crazy quilts, sure to provide inspiration for the reader s own crazy-quilt creations. Booklist Textile artist and instructor Betty Fikes Pillsbury has won hundreds of awards for her homages to the elegance of Victorian crazy quilting. Grounded in traditional methods but crafted with elements of whimsy, each piece stands on its own as a work of art. In this definitive guide, Pillsbury shares her methods for piecing, embroidering, and embellishing. Her instructions equip readers at any level of quilting skill to use those techniques to express their own visions. Encouraging her readers to see functional and artistic possibilities beyond quilts (wall hangings, purses, and pillowcases are just some of the options), Pillsbury shows them how to make each work by hand, the slow cloth way. An inspiring primer for beginning and experienced quilters alike, this meticulously illustrated how-to book is far more expansive than previous guides. Pillsbury a master of the form shows us why crazy quilting belongs firmly in the twenty-first century."
