In order to entice readers to purchase their “waste embroidery silk,” the Brainerd & Armstrong Co., offered to send each buyer instructions for the pictured 100 Crazy stitches with every package ordered. The patterns include both designs to cover fabric seams and stand-alone images, such as the ever popular spider web, folding fan, butterfly, and anchor. A shooting star or comet motif is also included and can be found on a number of Crazy quilts, including this crib-sized piece.
