Crazy Patchwork Stitch Dictionaries

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.
