Crazy Quilting has always been a dream
of mine to try since I saw a beautiful
crazy quilt cushion in Smithills Hall
I have always felt daunted by the process
but this book has taken away that fear.



There are ten projects in this book
and everything you need to know to make
them is in the book.


You are taken through easy steps how to
crazy quilt.
Everything from materials to use to how to
use the piecing method.


Then it's straight into the projects.
The first project is the tablet purse.
You start off with a bulleted list of everything
you will need to complete the project.
Then it's onto the making.
With each picture you are shown the things
you need to complete and where you can
find each of the stitches in the book.
As it is broken down into smaller parts
it doesn't seem quite as daunting.
Once you have completed the front panel
you are then talked through the back panel
and how to assemble the purse.


After the projects is the stitch dictionary.
You are supplied with step by step instructions
with some pictures to support you.
Pictures are included on some of the stitches
to show how the stitch appears in one of the projects.



At the back of the book all the templates
you will need are provided.
I love this fact as it means I can use the book
without having to re-size the patterns.


Overall I really like the projects in the book
and they bring together an amazing array
of techniques using crazy quilting.
