FOLK ...we the people ART ...images from life REVOLUTION ...seeking freedom to change by Kathy Doughty of Material Obsession


Early American Folk Art asks us to reflect upon a simpler life.. long gone, lost in time that couldn’t stand still.

Settlers: Quilters are loving the small detail and the naĂŻve style of the characters for fussy cutting both in small or large blocks. Wedding Ring: Big blocks of string pieced leaves woven into wedding rings that are perfect for quilting or applique. As an additional bonus, cutting through the pattern reveals great framing shapes and borders. Wagon Wheels: This dense colorful print is very useful in pieced blocks to set and frame the cut shapes.

Liberation: A version of a stripe, this print can be used as a directional print or a scatter print. Stars and Stripes: A nod to Susan McCord, these string pieced leaves are flag like in nature and can be cut along the stripes or across for sashing or borders.

Line Dancing: These happy dancers act as a spot with some quirky color combinations to add a bit of spice to background areas. Twisted Thistle: All over floral prints are easy to use as a feature print or to fill in background areas. The sample patterns work the collection from fussy cut traditional style patterns through to modern big block ideas. Use them or create your own to suit your own style.


Setting Sail, by Wendy Williams Big patterns can be randomly cut with great effect.

Folk Art Wedding, by Kathy Doughty uses the popular Wedding Ring template to showcase the characters of the collection.

Seeking Freedom, by Kathy Doughty By the light of the stars, settlers made their way across the sea to a new land of sparkling promises. A sample for your shop might use a low volume or tone on tone print. Folk Art Baby, by Megan Manwaring, A strip quilt using strings pieced together combines lots of values and colors. Kits like this are great for moving stock and encouraging creative choices.

The dense Wagon Wheel and Liberation prints set strong lines for the wedding ring. My favourite, Wedding Ring print cuts easily into an exciting border print to complete the picture.
