When Kathy Doughty and Sarah Fielke from www.materialobsession.com came out with their first book I was in agony because I could not buy it. It was in Australia and just not affordable to me. I read their blog daily and it was because of them that I started working on my bold colored grandma's flower garden. Every day for the past year I would search eBay, amazon, book stores, yard sales, etc... for the book at a better price. I finally got lucky and found it on eBay for a very affordable price. To me it is completely worth it. The pictures are fabulous and I am thoroughly enjoying it. All the quilts are quilts that they have made throughout the years, not the ones their customers make on their blog. I love how almost all of them are hand quilted and many are quilted with pearl cotton which to me is like quilting with a nail but it works for them. The drawings they have included are darling and the pictures are vibrant.
