Beginning with a one-page introduction and a seven-page section entitled “General Craziness”, you will be off and running on how to create these cabin themed quilts.

There are 10 quilts with crazy piecing in mind. The patterns have a colored photo, a paragraph about it and the material and cuttings lists you would expect. Tips are set off in small bordered boxes. Graphics are included in the written instructions and an exploded photo of the final project is also included. Any templates for paper piecing are included.

There is a page about the author at the back of the book. If you are ready to do something a bit different in your quilting, this book will definitely provide you with that.
Alguna vez han intentado la técnica que consiste en apilar varias piezas de tela de la misma medida pero de distinto color, cortarlas simultáneamente y mezclar los colores manteniendo el mismo diseño? La autora que hoy nos ocupa bautiza a su técnica con el apelativo "Crazies" - un estilo un poquitín alocado pero cuyo resultado es bello y divertido. Pues bien, el libro que hoy les reseño emplea esta técnica en todos los diseños de las quilts más encantadoras. El tema que la autora selecciona se basa en quilts que se pueden utilizar al aire libre, en días de campo, en almuerzos "al fresco" o bien en cabañas, vacaciones de verano o fines de semana. Jane Rae Nesbitt -la autora- complementa con un poco de appliqué, otras técnicas sencilla de patchwork y lo principal, el trabajo al estilo "crazy" quilt que a muchas va a encantar especialmente porque nos libera de ese agobio al tener que utilizar la regla con extrema precisión. Digámosle "adiós" al temor de no poder lograr esas puntas perfectas. Yo les garantizo que con la técnica "Crazies" explicada al detalle desde el primer capítulo, el resultado será sensacional y sus quilts recibirán una gran cantidad de cumplidos.
