New approach of using old quiltpatterns, very good use of the newest modern fabrics. Beautiful pictures. A very happy, colorful book with quilts, clear explanations, easy to make with use of the included patterns or acrylic templates. I'm a huge fan of Kathy and have her other book too, as always lots of inspiration through photos and words!

5.0 out of 5 stars Purchased Sight Unseen 5 Mar 2014
By Anannymess - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I got Kathy Doughty's first book "Material Obsession" from the library and it totally changed the way I felt about fabric choices. Since then I have purchased a couple of Kathy's books. Having collected traditional quilt fabrics for years, I felt like the older fabric that I still love just doesn't fit in with contemporary quilt fabrics I've added to my stash. But Kathy has made me feel thrilled with the possibilities of using my fabric in unexpected, unpredictable ways. So when I saw she had a new book coming out, I pre-ordered it having complete faith that I'd love it. (I've never been disappointed with a book published by Stashbooks anyway.) I didn't even use the 'Look Inside' feature on Amazon.

This book gives great instructions for using special rulers, such as the wedge ruler. The pictures are great; the instructions are easy to follow. The patterns are not repeats; the theme, text and projects are all fresh and new. I read my quilt books from cover to cover and thoroughly enjoyed this one. For each quilt there is a "How I started" and "How I finished" section as well as great tips. The large scale quilts are so fun I'd like to try designing one myself! I have already started gathering fabric for Vintage Spin.

This is her best book yet. Lots of inspiration and beautiful photos. The Material Obsession blog has sparked my creativity so many times and this book distills that process, for me at least.

I've adored Kathy Doughty since her and Fielke's foray into quilting with Material Obsession I and II. Adding Layers-Color, Design, and Imagination is filled with even more exciting quilts. Kathy takes some simple tools and designs quilts that are vibrant, alive, modern yet with a hint of tradition -- I hope she continues to produce such fresh and original designs. I'm a fan!
