Ricky meets Kathy Doughty. She's an American now living in Sydney, Australia, who takes color, pattern, and designs based on traditional blocks, and updates them with contemporary fabrics. They discuss her shop, Material Obsession, and her work with designers Denyse Schmidt and Wendy Williams.

I visited her shop in February of this year in Drummoyne (suburb of Sydney). My husband and I took the city bus there and back to the CBD. It was one of the highlights of my trip to Australia. I did some damage there as I had a few bags worth of goodies. The wool I found there was beyond soft and beautiful. Jim could not have been nicer to my husband while he waited for me to finish up. Thanks for a wonderful experience in your quilt shop. Well worth going....

Love her fabric combinations. I am about two thirds finished completing the pickle dish pattern in her book written with Sarah Fielke, Material Obsession 2. Every pattern in that book is beautiful.
