Each quilt shown in "Material Obsession, ranging in level of difficulty from easy to advanced, has instructions for piecing using the colors shown in the quilt, but suggestions are given throughout the book about different colorways to consider in certain patterns, or pointing out that a particular color of fabric may be needed to give the quilt a certain "punch" of color. Also helpful is a statement by the writers regarding the "idea" behind the making of each quilt, which can help provide a creative spark for the readers who want to use a favorite fabric or a grouping of fabric scraps.
The book ends with a quilter's reference section, the need of which in a quilting book can often be considered debatable by an experienced quilter. However, the reference section works in this book, due to the increasing level of difficulty of the quilt patterns shown in this book, and the need for knowledge of certain skills in hand quilting, applique, and piecing shapes such as diamonds and hexagons.Read more ›
substance. It's not something I would want to replicate. As one review said, the quilts are too "cute".
The other Material Obsession books are wonderful! I love their fabric choices and appreciate that
they do not try to push a designer fabric line in their books.

So many beautiful quilts to make. However if you want precise instructions and help at every step of the way, wait until you are an advanced beginner. Read morePublished 19 months ago by AngieN
Love the book but I think it could use a few more patterns that are simple for the beginning quilter, but if you are an experienced quilter, I think you will really enjoy the book.Published 22 months ago by Sharon Sicily
This is a great book with some fab projects. A little sparse in the template pages but that's okay - easy to follow.Published on April 16, 2014 by Friends Robidoux Library
