At the 2008 Houston International Quilt Market I had the pleasure of attending a short program introducing Judith Baker Montano’s new book. Much thought and preparation went into this book and it is the perfect reference for both the beginner and advanced stitcher.

The book (5”x 6”) is spiral bound and stands up for easy use. Included within the pages are tips on fabrics, needles and threads as well as 180 stitches for both thread and silk ribbon embroidery.

What makes this book such an easy-to-use reference guide is the alphabetical listing of the stitches. They are offered for both the right and left-handed stitcher and are beautifully illustrated in color.

Like most crazy quilt enthusiasts I have a vast library of books and constantly tell myself I don’t need another one. I know these stitches are in the books I currently own, but I would have to search through many to find exactly what I’m looking for. This is definitely not the case with Judith’s alphabetized “Embroidery and Crazy Quilt Tool.” It maintains a prominent place on my table standing ready to refresh my memory at any time.

I would encourage you to add this wonderful book to your library; you will not be disappointed. Please visit Judith’s website at where you can order a copy of this book.

Also available on Judith’s website is her new DVD entitled "Judith Baker Montano Teaches You Crazy Quilting." I recently purchased a copy and find it very informative. Having crazy quilted for ten years I was really surprised to learn new techniques I had not thought of. I know you will be very pleased with the contents of this DVD and the vast amount of information included.
