One of the most influential magazines for the library market and seen by far more readers than the circulation reflects, Library Journal included a review of Crazy Quilts on their page featuring Fiber Crafts. Reviewer Jan Zlendich, Librarian Emerita, Cal State Univ. Lib., Fullerton writes:
“Textiles appraiser Brick here presents a well-documented and generously illustrated history of a ‘crazy’ form of quilting that was wildly popular in the1880’s and is today enjoying a resurgence of interest among quiltmakers…Color photographs, vintage drawings, postcards, and advertisements bring the colorful world of the crazy quilt into focus while a practical ‘how-to’ section teaches the prospective crazy quilter three different methods for constructing crazies. A fine, solid choice for public and academic library quilting collections”.
