Book Share

I picked up a beautiful book a few weeks ago, Making Quilts with Kathy Doughty of Material Obsession (at Lori’s Country Cottage in Sherwood Park, Canada). The gorgeous cover drew me to pick it up. Throughout, the photography highlighting Doughty’s adoptive home, Australia, was stunning, and so were the quilts!

In her words, Kathy uses the “seemingly neutral background of the landscape” of Australia as the “perfect backdrop for dynamic sun-drenched color”. And as we’re just digging in to our Canadian winter, a book full of Australian warmth seemed like just the thing.

Kathy’s quilts just sing with color and her designs and fabric choices are bold and dramatic. Love! I’ll be adding her Doves in the Window to my someday list. Her use of value in the stars to create the look of doves in this design is brilliant.

Thanks for sharing your art, Kathy. Find Kathy’s shop, Material Obsession on Facebook. You may not find Making Quilts at your favorite shop because it’s from 2013, but Amazon has it.
