Brian Haggard in his new book Crazy-Quilted Memories walks the sewer through the steps to create beautiful crazy patchwork with 10 specific projects capturing family moments and memories. Each project starts with a special family memento, and the creativity under Brians guidance grows from there. The books design and most of the projects are presented in old-fashioned, soft sepia tones. Design a class where everyone brings in a photo or other small family treasure to use in their own project. Read Brians preface in the first session and let the storytelling begin.

Brian Haggard shares his journey of creating a series of quilts and pillows that celebrates and commemorates his ancestors. If you're someone who revels in vintage things, has a stash of old family photographs and would love to find ways of presenting them in unique ways, it's likely that this book wil be of enormous value Interestingly, Brian works in a palette that's almost entirely neutrals-perhaps he and Pay Wys are in the nanguard of a new trend? - But there's no reason why his 10 projects coudn't be implemented in every colour of the rainbow and look just as wonderful. In addition to step-by-step instructions for a variety of embroidery stitches for embellishing your crazy patchwork, Brian provides notes on printing photographs on fabrics, "antiquing" your fabrics, a gallery of his work (in addition to the projects) and a number of full-size traceable embroidery designs.
