I found out about this wonderful quilting blog earlier this week, and I just love it.
Material Obsession is written by two Australian quilters who own a shop with the same name. They have also just published a book by the same name as well (on its way to me right now).
Every pot has tons of picture, mostly of quilts, but sometimes of blocks and sections of quilts, sometimes of people. What astounds me is how bright and creative they all are. I feel as if these ladies have taken all the vibrancy of Kaffe Fassett colorful quilts and needlepoint, internalized it and then gone on a taught others.
I’m in love with the vibrancy and the patterns. One recent quilt, a star block based on equilateral triangles has inspired me to make an ornament in Trianglepoint based on it. I’m still working on it, but I’ll show you and give you a chart when it’s done. And looking through, I found about a dozen more I want to adapt.
Even if you don’t love quilts, the vibrancy and color will brighten your day.
One final note, this site does not have an RSS feed, so if you use something like Google Reader, you’ll have to go to the site directly.
