Ah, Bill . . . .
Over the years others have produced William Morris fabrics, most recently Barbara Brackman for Moda, who has done some magnificent interpretations.
There is an entire clothes basket full of William Morris fabrics, even though I've made several quilts from the stash. I have more of this fabric than anyone should have the right to.
Last week I saw a photo of a quilt that was made from Kaffe/Mabley/etc. fabrics, all mixed together in an organized fashion, strata alternating with mostly nine-patches. I knew immediately that while it was stunning in the Rowan fabrics, the design was absolutely perfect for my Morris mish-mash. Today I pulled, pressed, cut, and stitched, and loved every minute of it. I made a dozen or more units. Now what I need to do is get out my graph paper and see how many of each I'm going to need. Last night I was thinking of a lap/nap quilt and today that had morphed into a queen quilt for our bed. Stay tuned. Please.
Oh, Marsha, I'm going to be sleeping with Bill!
