Review: By Dori Hawks
Even if you have never tried crazy quilting, you will be very tempted after reading this book, “Crazy Quilting With Attitude.” Barbara Randle shows you the basics with clear instructions and illustrations, but with a twist. Her projects are not the least bit ordinary. “Here are throw pillows, lampshades, purses, scarves – lots of artsy projects that your great grandmother could never imagine!”
From choosing fabric, “using traditional crazy quilting techniques, how to choose and mix colors, and some embellishment ideas that will take your creations over the top,” this book has a full book of ideas.
Included are 12 projects, many color illustrations, and also a gallery of ideas to inspire your next project. She uses unusual trims, fabrics, and combinations and as a result the projects have a very contemporary and up-to-date book.
Look for this book at your favorite quilt shop!
