    this is something i want to try with scraps from the clothes we've been making my daughter. i looked at jo-anns and they had one book, but it was more about the decorative stitching and not actually how to cut and piece the fabrics. i did buy the leisure arts book on crazy quilt stitches, but still looking for directions.

    can anyone recommend a book or website? my local quilt shop isn't having the class until fall and i think i want to go ahead and get starts.

    tia!

    These are the new blocks I have just done for Jess n Ryan's quilt -

    Jess loves magenta pink so I just lay it on some fabric that I recycled form a charity shop find dress to audition the colour - she loves it - but not sure what Ryan will think, I might have to make the magenta borders smaller like I did on the first quilt....we will see how it progress lol!!
