Back Cover Information

Crazy quilting expert, J. Marsha Michler, gives you the tools to crazy quilt every room in your home. Her easy-to-follow instructions and illustrations guide you through seven techniques and over 50 projects. Choose from five decor themes: Far East, Western, Victorian, Country and Whimsy. Create works of art with quilts, wallhangings, pillows and the unexpected tin can vase, bath mat and lace curtains. The glossary includes the techniques, fabrications and embroidery stitches that will help you quilt successfully and with style.

J. Marsha Michler is an accomplished researcher, designer and writer. She is the author of several books on crazy quilting, including "The Magic of Crazy Quilting, 2nd Edition," "Crazy Quilt by Machine," "Crazy Quilted Heirlooms and Gifts," and "Motifs for Crazy Quilting." She resides in Maine.
