Crazy Patchwork Stitch Dictionaries
Crazy Patchwork is one of my favourite genres of Patchwork and Quilting, and I especially love the combination of stitches that are used in Crazy Patchwork.
I am fortunate to have several publications that have been my “library” of stitches that I use over and over. Here’s a list of the books I own that contain useful diagrams and instructions for many, many interesting combinations of embroidery stitches suitable for crazy patchwork.
Crazy Quilting – The Complete Guide by J.Marsha Michler
Elegant Stitches by Judith Baker Montano & Floral Stitches by Judith Baker Montano
The Embroidery Stitch Bible by Betty Barnden
Motifs for Crazy Quilting by J.Marsha Michler
Quilt Savvy Embroidery Stitches by Joan Waldman

From Sharon Boggon (this is my favourite website)
from Pretty Impressive Stuff
from Needle Crafter
from Needlework Tips and Techniques
