Last month I did a post about a couple of Crazy Quilting books that I am enjoying at the moment. I have been Crazy Quilting for 12 years now though. I don't use books very much these days but when I first started I had my Crazy Quilting Books next to me all the time as a refresher for stitches and ideas in general.
When I teach I often get asked which are the best Crazy Quilting Books to buy.
My favourite Book in those early days was Elegant Stitches by Judith Baker Montano, it is spiral bound too so it stays open.
I am fairly sure that it is still in print and available. It's handy for left-handers as well because there is a section just for them.
Another book that is still available and very good is the A-Z of Embroidery Stitches. My copy is old and they have changed the cover of it now. It is also spiral bound and has many step by step photos of stitches to follow.
I used to look at Motifs for Crazy Quilting by J. Marsha Michler a lot in the early days, although I don't use it these days because I draw out my own motifs. It is a lovely book but I am not sure if it is still in print.
There is a new Crazy Book out called Foolproof Crazy Quilting by Jennifer Clouston that has lovely coloured photos and plenty of stitch ideas.
These are the books that I would recommend to a beginner crazy quilter. Have you got any favourite Crazy Quilting books?
Bye for now,
