Crazy Quilt Stitches Gift Set
Crazy Quilt Stitches by Dorothy Bond is a wonderful brand new collectible book for the quilter and embroiderer. There are so many little things that make this laminated 6.5x6.3 inch book special.
First, it’s laminated, which means the pages won’t wear out from getting repeatedly turned.
Secondly, the spiral binding makes it easy to turn pages and keep them at the page you need them to copy the embroidery stitch.
Finally, there are so many interesting embroidery stitches that can be used on a crazy quilt design.
The crazy quilt was made popular during Queen Victoria’s time and made use of fabric scraps set in blocks at all sorts of angles. The blocks where finished with embroidery.
Here’s a more modern take of the crazy quilt concept, our Harvest Crazy Quilt:
Some embroidery stitches are classics. The daisy, for example, is a personal favorite and so useful for a variety of things including embellishment.
Dorothy Bond’s Crazy Quilt Stitches book features other stitches I have yet to try, which reminds me of bird feet.
On the back of the book copyright 1981, more embroidery inspiration for borders including butterflies.
To make this into a gift set, we’ve added brand new thread snips, which make removing left over embroidery floss easy once it is tied off on the back.
As someone who has embroidered for many decades, I would love to get this Crazy Quilt Stitches set as a gift!
