If you like to "Crazy Quilt", I recommend the following: "The Complete Illustrated Stitch Encyclopedia". The book has a wide variety of stitches with detailed instructions and projects. The book includes Hardanger, smocking, Bargello, shadow work, needlepoint, pillow covers , textured rugs, footstools, Japanenese stitching & much more. The book inspires one to try new things.
I found it at my local library - then ordered it online.
