Bead Creative Like Crazy: A MUST-HAVE BEADING BOOK FOR ANY ART QUILT OR CRAZY QUILT LIBRARY
Let the foremost authority on fabric beading be your personal guide as you learn new and exciting beading techniques based on the opulent bead embroidery featured on Victorian crazy quilts. I have spent countless hours over a 20 year period finding a way to easily turn embroidery stitches into beading patterns which I call Crazy Beading. You will find in the book over 100 beading patterns, with illustrated instructions, clear color photos, and stitch direction diagrams so even a novice beader will have the techniques and confidence to create works of art. Start with bead embroidery basics and my favorite beading tips, and then move on to creating the lazy daisy, chain, chevron, cretan, feather, button hole, and other stitches with beads.
