In the Big Book of Crazy Quilt Stitches, designer Patricia Eaton features 75 embroidery stitches and floral motifs. This all-inclusive guide highlights the world of lavish Victorian crazy quilts and the delicate embroidery stitches that made them so memorable. The contents include directions to make paper-pieced or embroidered blocks, in addition to the embroidery stitches. Learn to embellish the seams and patches of crazy quilt projects with embroidered stitches. Projects featured are Precious Purple Pillow, Ring Bearer's Pillow, Jewel-tone Pillow, Beautiful Blue Wall Hanging, Baby's Comforter, and Warm Woolen Throw.
