Product description

Synopsis

Quilters Sarah Fielke and Kathy Doughty, owners of popular patchwork shop Material Obsession, share their distinctive, colourful and contemporary designs. They explain how anyone, even those who don't think they are 'creative', can confidently choose colours and patterns to create bold, easy-to-make quilts - perfect for today's busy craftspeople. Also included are instructions on the basics of patchwork and quilting.

About the Author

Kathy Doughty began making quilts over 20 years ago after a move to Australia with her family. She opened a patchwork shop in 2003, and eventually developed the popular Material Obsession shop with her husband/site photographer, John. Kathy lives in Sydney with her family. http://materialobsession.typepad.com Kaffe Fassett, an accomplished painter and designer of textiles, is widely acknowledged as a visionary in the use of colour. In 1988 he was honored to become the first living textile designer to be given a one person show at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. Since then the exhibition of his textiles has traveled the world with him as he has taught and inspired others. He is a fabric designer for Rowan Patchwork and the primary knitwear designer for Rowan Yarns. He is the author of 15 books, which have sold over a million copies worldwide. Sarah Fielke is a quilter, teacher, designer and author. She has co-authored two hugely successful quilt books - Material Obsession: Contemporary Quilt Designs, and Material Obsession Two: Shared Inspiration. In these books, which have been published in four languages, she inspires quilters to be more creative, find their own style and step outside their comfort zone. Sarah publishes patterns for magazines around the world, including Down Under Quilts, Quilters Companion, Quilting Arts, Quilters Newsletter and Quiltmania magazine. She appears regularly in quilting features in international home magazines and is the creative editor of a website for all things sewn.
