There are lamp shades, pillows and chair covers, even an upholstered chair. Benches and footstools as well as a dressing table and stool are also included. The final treat is a market umbrella that will provide a colorful shade on any patio.

Randle begins with quilting fabric, foundation fabric, tools of the trade, project guidelines and Crazy Quilting Techniques in the "Getting Started"section. She continues with three methods of Crazy Quilting, traditional, chevron and on the slant.
