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.
Since the book contains a foreword by Kaffe Fassett, don't be surprised to see a picture or two of shelves of fabric, most of Kaffe's own designs. If you are a Kaffe Fassett fabric lover, this is just icing on the cake. However, Kaffe's fabrics do not dominate in the quilt designs in the book; it is fun to looks at the quilts and see how many different current designer fabrics you can spot in the quilts, and see how many you may already have in your fabric stash.
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.
