Abstract

In this arts-based study, I will discuss using craft techniques such as crazy quilting in the creative process of making art. The paper describes the history of crazy quilts, a brief summary of artists who use quilts as a medium, and a description of how teaching craft-making skills in the classroom can encourage students to use them for art-making.
