Two excellent new titles are fine recommendations for crafts seeking something different; especially those in need of quick projects. Flora Roberts' Crazy Quilting In A Weekend: 25 Home Decor Projects That You Can Make In No Time (1580-112412, $19.95) offers designs which use the 'crazy style' to create quick quilts, throws, pillows and more. Color photos, templates and patterns, and plenty of illustration lend to the projects and promise speed results suitable for all kinds of practical home applications, from decorative throws to laundry bags. Sharon Ross & Else Kinkead's Decorative Painting & Faux Finishes (1580111793, $19.95) could have been featured in our 'homeowner's helpers' section but deserves mention here for its special attraction to crafters who enjoy working with paint. Over 300 color photos offer plenty of tips on how to work with different types of paint, color schemes, and how to prepare surfaces. Different methods, from ragging to antique and basic stippling and creating a parchment effect using newsprint, are covered in plenty of detail.
