My Wm Morris Quilt


I used Wm Morris print cotton to make this "strip" quilt.  Really easy pattern and relatively quick (for a quilt) as you can cut and sew long triple and quadruple strips together before cutting them to patchwork length and sewing them together.  There are a few places to get these Morris cottons on web (for instance, The Quilted Fox, Old Trinity Schoolhouse Quilt Shop, or  I used a navy blue flat sheet for backing, added some batting between, then "stitched-in-the-ditch" to pull it all together.  The homemade headboard was copied from a similar headboard in the Stickley-Audi furniture store and is made out of cherry and mahogany.
