A Great New Crazy Quilting Book
I've been meaning to show you this book (Allie Aller's Crazy Quilting) for weeks now and tonight is a good time to do it. Have you seen it? One of the blogs I read often belongs to its' author, Allison Ann Aller. You can visit her blog here. Why don't you drop by and see her work for yourself, especially if you are a crazy quilter...you'll love the visit.
I pre-ordered the book before it came out, which means I had to WAIT for it. A very hard thing to do as I love to get a new book, especially one I believe will be a great one. When it arrived in the mail, I was overjoyed as it is BEAUTIFUL! Well, the wait was certainly worth it...as I've enjoyed this book very much. I think you will too. Wonderful examples of crazy quilts, as Allie has many, and she shares so much in the making of these quilts. This book is billed as "The New Crazy!" It is...you will be very interested in how she creates these beautiful wonders.
Here you will see the front cover, several photo examples of her stitching, flowers, butterflies, etc.
Then, the last photo is of her favorite pincushion (and the back of the book)...oh, my...it's one of my very favorite pieces in the book. So, enjoy.....you might want to order one. Mine came from amazon.com. When you get yours, make a cup of tea, put your feet up and enjoy some time in crazy quilt heaven!!
I hope you will come back for a visit later in the week. You might get to hear about my weekend retreat and see some of my favorite FUN things found there. Til then....take care, pat
