Crazy Beautiful!

Author Alice Wilhoit has brought crazy quilting into the 21st century with our latest book, Crazy Patchwork. She uses batiks to create the foundation blocks, and this makes all the difference!

Forget the dark, heavy look of Victorian crazy quilts; Alice shows you how to create fresh, fun, fabulous quilts, pillows, a fireplace mantle scarf that is to die for, and the perfect gift -- a framed quilt picture.

Her stitching instructions are super easy to follow, and the best part of the book is that she gives you 12 completely different blocks based on the flowers and gem stones associated with birth months. If you're a "findings" collector -- trinket, buttons, laces, trims, broken or mismatched jewelry -- this book is for you.

Alice and her students show you how unique your quilt can be; check out the gallery of their quilts, all made in the same class, and see how different they are. If you already love crazy quilts, you'll love this book's updated look. If you've never tried crazy quilting, this book could be the start of true love affair!
