About the Author In 1993, Kathy Doughty made her first quilt and instantly fell in love with the American-style quilt since it connected her to her childhood home so far away and simple pleasures. She spent years making squares until she discovered triangles. Then she found an array of lively shapes and skills that took her into more complex quilting patterns. She enjoys that there is a lot to learn in quilting, and she says she will always want to fine-tune and add skills to the basics that she still loves. In 2003, she opened Material Obsession in Drummoyne NSW. The shop is a place where quilters are encouraged to experiment with textiles, design and method.
