In the 1970's I became interested in crazyquilts. Since there was no available literature to help me, I developed a crazyquilt method using the sewing machine, a method that left nice flat seams.
I first crazyquilted simple items such as placemats and pillows. These were followed by a crazyquilt-style denim bedspread and a reupholsteed recliner chair using fabric from old denim jeans. I created shirts, skirts, coats, jackets, vests, blouses, bathrobes and ascots and demonstrated my machine-sewn crazyquilt method in quilt classes and at Community Colleges.
While other quilters enjoy doing beautifully stitched hand quilting, I was more enthused just putting the colors and shapes together and was content to let the sewing machine do what I felt was tedious stitching.
Since crazyquilt is really a fabric collage, the same composition rules apply as in artwork. I published a 15-page pamphlet of instructions and the rules relating to this art form. The pamphlets titled "Creative Crazypatch" are available - $6.00 covers pamphlet plus mailing in the United States. Just email me at the below address.
