Here we see Kathy and her photographer husband (talented pair!) heading into the Australian bush with 22 quilts, a perfect backdrop for her often eclectic, colour drenched works of art.
From scrap quilts (I love that green)...
Greenfields (page 213)to machine piecing...
I definitely want to make this one up maybe in liberty's.
Sunburst (page 117)
I bought the kit for this one, can't wait to get started on it.
Uzbek Patches (page 77)
Wagga (page 205)
A few of the quilts I had spied on Kathy's blog Material Obsession (where she finds the time to post so much inspiration over there is beyond me, if you have never seen her blog, you are in for a treat!), but there were many I had never seen before. Back in 2009 Kathy started this quilt...
Pheasantville (page 137)
which I had to get my hands on, and used to make this quilt (which is still unquilted 3 years later, arghh!!)...
Poor photo, will take some better ones...once it is quilted...one day!!
Kathy's marvellous book is available in Australia from her shop Material Obsession, and I've spied it over at Liza's place Glorious Colour too. Do you have your copy yet? Which quilt will you make first?
