Welcome to the crazy world of the unexpected, stretch-of-the-imagination, color-freedom, whimsical, and "outside-the-box" creativity of Barbara Randle's Crazy Quilted Designs for purses and home decor items.
This is her second book for crazy quilting with attitude, which includes full-sized patterns for purses.
Barbara's first book opened the door for quilters to use explosive color combos and to add fur, tassles, and other fun textures to projects.
In this follow-up learn three trendy techniques for crazy quilting and embellishing, along with tips for designing their own handbags.
Featured in this ultimate crazy-quilting reference are 14 projects, including a throw, diaper bag and a variety of handbags, plus a gallery with tips for customizing clothing and home decor.
Quilting enthusiasts of all skill levels will benefit from Randle's easy-to-follow instructions, demonstrated in more than 60 illustrations and 100+ stunning color photos. Plus, full-size patterns for two handbag projects are included with this must-have resource!
Full-size patterns for two purses are included
You'll find more of Barbara's beautiful projects with beautiful photography, and lots of informative text in her new book. Barbara says: "Writing my first book, Crazy Quilting With Attitude, was a scary experience for me. Now, with a little more confidence, and the passion that I feel for my art, I am excited to share even more with you. Nothing has changed with regard to the basics and I will again share with you the how-to of crazy quilting and embellishment. I am introducing twelve new purse designs, a chapter on how to create your own purse patterns, a chapter on crazy quilted home decor items, some garments and other cute stuff."
The cover photo is of the "Mama Petunia," a larger version of the original "Petunia." Step-by-step instructions for both are included in the book. Other purse designs in the book are "Myrtle Would," "Elvira," "Stripper," "Museum Bag," "Gondola," "Pick-Pocket," "Modern Myrt," "Myrtle Beach Bag," "Book Bag," "Monogram Bag," and much much more." You will find that this book is more personal than my first - you will see more â€śfrom the heart.â€ť
Barbara has again enlisted the services of Sylvia Martin to photograph her work. We think you will agree she is The Best. The photography is done on location at some of the homes of Barbara's "Crazy Quilt Friends" as well as her own home.
