"From the broad strokes of design to the precision of embroidery stitches, Pillsbury explains crazy quilting with the authority of a scholar and the passion of an artist. Her expertise, backed by historical research, is paired with her exquisite stitching, and Crazy Quilts is a storehouse of ideas and techniques. Beautifully detailed, with simple instruction, this book is an important resource for those who love the art of the needle." -- Kathleen Glynn, filmmaker and editor of The Daily Stitch
"Award-winning artist Pillsbury details her own process for making crazy quilts and outlines basic instructions for a first-timer. Step-by-step directions for a variety of stitches, beading, and ribbon embroidery fill the bulk of the book.... There are beautiful close-up photos throughout, mostly of Pillsbury's work but also showing the details of some historical crazy quilts, sure to provide inspiration for the reader's own crazy-quilt creations."
"If you like ornate and adorned textile surfaces, this book will prove an invaluable guide."
"Pillsbury breaks down complex stitch combinations into their simplest elements so that results can be reproduced with accuracy and ease. She provides oodles of pictures with variations and solutions to the trickiest problems. With simple yet brilliant suggestions, she'll guide you to the land of crazy quilt enchantment." -- Susan Elliott, Plays with Needles
