The book has an in-depth section on materials and tools. Learn image transfer and stenciling methods while creating your own fabrics.

I love embroidery and I love quilting. Here I get to combine the best of both worlds with crazy quilting. There is no limit to the amount of fabrics you can use and no limit to the amount of stitching you can do. Crazy quilting is truly an over the top combination of both. Allie's book gives great instructions on everything that you'll need: from various techniques to begin your blocks, types of fabrics used, piece sizes, embroidery stitches, embellishments and how to attach them (there is a great tutorial on how to attach real sea shells to your quilt), there's inspirational quilts to get you motivated, and a wide variety of projects. I especially like the first project that she uses to get you started which is a pincushion. It gives you a real taste of what crazy quilting is all about in a very compact easy to use design. It's a great way to get your feet wet. The sky's the limit as to what you can create using the basics of crazy quilting.-Lydia Lowe

If you have ever wanted to try crazy quilting, this is the book for you. It is full of great techniques and ways to utilize your stash and embellishments. Aller walks you through seven different projects from concept to completion. If ever you were thinking of trying some mixed media projects, but were afraid of the outcome, here is your opportunity to give it a try. There is a strong mix of traditional and current trends in this book. The author leaves a lot of room for personal taste and preferences. As a how-to book for this technique, it is great.
