Australian quilter Doughty, coauthor of the quilting classic Material Obsession, returns with a deeper investigation of her distinct scrappy style, this time with a focus on mixing English paper piecing and hand and machine appliqué with traditional patchwork. Doughty is best known for combining traditional elements with contemporary fabric settings, and this book brings a fresh point of view to fans, rings, Dresden plates, and log cabin blocks. The projects are divided into four sections: Go Slowly! focuses on English paper piecing; Wedge Work applies wedge rulers in both familiar and unexpected ways; At the Machine highlights machine appliqué and quilt-as-you-go techniques; and Mixing Textures considers wool and wool felt used in appliqué. Each project includes an overview of Doughtys process for fabric selectiona plus for quilters who are curious about the factors that go into making that decision, or for quilters who have difficulty making the right selectionand the cutting and sewing instructions are easy to follow. Photography buffs will relish the gorgeous images of Doughtys finished quilts in rustic outdoor settings. VERDICT Experienced quilters curious about handwork and appliqué will delight in this collection as well as the glimpse into Doughtys design vision and execution.
