Treasury of Crazyquilt Stitches : A Comprehensive Guide to Traditional
Hand Embroidery Inspired by Antique Crazyquilts
By Carole K. Samples
In 1981, Dorothy Bond self-published Crazy Quilt
Stitches, perhaps the first compilation of sketches of embroidery stitches
found on the seams of old crazy-patch quilts. For two decades, the "brown
book," as it came to be called, was a valuable source for designers of
crazy quilts. Continuing that tradition, Samples has collected and classified
thousands of decorative stitches, both antique stitch combinations and
new stitches of her own creation. Like its predecessor, this treasury is
a collection of stitch and stitch combination drawings--not a "how-to"
or project book. Samples's extensive "Crazyquilter's Reading List" refers
the reader to other books on embroidery techniques with specific information
on forming the stitches and to project books for patterns and photographs
of crazy quilts. A recommended reference source for embroidery and quilting
collections in public and academic settings.
Quilt National 2001 :
The Best Contemporary Quilts
By Hilary Morrow Fletcher
These are among the most innovative, outstanding
quilts being designed today--chosen to appear in the 2001 Quilt National
Biennial Exhibition--and a source of new ideas, interest, and excitement
for quilt makers, collectors, and enthusiasts alike. Since its inception
22 years ago, the Quilt National exhibit continues to be a showcase for
contemporary artists who expand the boundaries of traditional quilt making,
creating designs meant for display on walls rather than as covers for beds.
It sets the standards and serves as the model for all other art quilt shows.
Through the large, spectacular color photographs here, as well as the artists'
descriptions of the motivations behind their works, you can enjoy and refer
to these quilts as often as you like at home. These designs are wonderful
reflections of where quilting has been--and where it's going. All in Color
