More Morris quilts and the USA!

Hello friends far and wide. I do hope the unseasonal snow is not creating too many problems for you in the Northern Hemisphere. We are in the middle of heat and more heat here in South Australia! I have some more William Morris quilts to share - first from Maureen in the UK. Both projects are from the first book and Maureen also created placemats as well. Maureen also shared her personal  cancer journey with me and said it helped her through tough times.......I am glad Maureen and they are all just beautiful

Sadly my packages of quilts are "still missing". But this amazing 'replacement' cushion came in the post all the way from New York........just stunning - Thankyou Eli

And Denise from home made the Peacock quilt for me.....thanks Denise

Fay joined me last year in the 'Morning Chorus' quilt class at an interstate retreat and this is the result. Isn't the graduated background fabric sensational! (I am doing this class soon in New Zealand and I gave away my sample........whoops....have had to do another!!)

During last week my brother sent me a link for an exhibition that was coming up that he thought would interest me.....Stephen Bowers is a ceramic artist and how is this for a collector's piece......well just one piece would be nice......
If you look carefully behind the Australian birds the backgrounds on the plates are William Morris

My final note tonight is this little snippet (!!!)

Yes my arm was twisted and I am coming for a visit to New Jersey to visit the Garden State Quilters before venturing on to Houston. WOW....I might finally meet some of you in person!! But first will be the exciting William Morris tours. More in the coming months - Have a good week


  1. Michele thsnkd for posting the save the date note.
    Also tell I am very impressed with his rotary cutting skills. Now I hope some day to teach Tony.

  2. How beautiful is all that work....thanks for sharing

  3. Oh Michele, I am so, so honored that you posted a picture of the pillow. I just loved doing it. And I just googled the Garden state Quilters--and you are such a short distance from NYC when you are there. Two of my sons live in NYC--so I will be going there to visit them and to meet you that weekend. I can hardly wait!!! AND--I finished the top of the Footsteps From the Past quilt and when I finish with it on the long arm, I will send you a picture. Such great news about you coming to the US, after some really horendous work days, it's great to have this news. Your friend, Eli


Thankyou for dropping by and sharing in my journey. And thanks especially for your lovely comments….I may not always respond (especially if there is no email address) but please know you are appreciated x
