Someday, When We're Done . . .

. . . I want to make a Marie Webster hand applique quilt for our bed. I want to make the Iris quilt from 1910.

We will be done with our list someday, won't we?

And I recently picked up Michele Hill's William Morris in Applique and I really want to make a lap quilt for the living room, called Morris Magic (on page 60). It would go well with our tapestries and William Morris pillow. Our modern quilts just look out of place in the the room.

For now, I think I will content myself with a starter-size project. The book offers up a pillow project, called Tudor Rose, designed by May Morris in 1892, on page 56. I need a hand project for during my wasted Netflix time.

  1. Beautiful quilts. The Iris one is my favorite.

  2. You really must schedule that quilt in so that it gets done - it's absolutely gorgeous!

  3. I love all of them! My mom used to make quilts when I was younger. She even made quilts for my dolls. :) I wish I had the patience for quilting, as it would be really cool to make one out of my girls baby clothes.

  4. I too think those quilts are gorgeous. One of that style is on my thing to do list. I just found your blog and I am now following. I look forward to your future posts.
