Several months ago I received the new Moda line by Barbara Brackman,
Morris Earthly Paradise.
It is truly lovely!
I ordered one print along with the fat quarters.
A charming black.
Beautifully reproduced William Morris floral prints
in gorgeous colors and black!
While William Morris is probably better know for his textiles & literary works,
I first learned of the famous William Morris while in college through
his involvement in the Arts & Crafts movement
and the extremely popular Morris chair.
More than a century later, it’s still sought after and being reproduced today!
It would be fun to draft this!
My grandparents had an antique version of the reclining chair & I actually have an Arts & Crafts style rocking chair in my living room that I acquired from a friend of the family’s estate.
Why am I attracted to old things?
Notice my new-to-me old mini chest of drawers?
Don’t be jealous.
Get out and go to some estate sales & flea markets!
I’ve added some background fabrics from my stash for my quilt.
I need to get cutting!
Will it surprise you to learn that I’m going to be cutting little Dresden petals???
This collection is available in quilt shops now and Barbara has a quilt-along
going on with her fabrics.
You can learn more about the collection by joining her on her blog, Material Culture.
Just keep sewing…
