    My First William Morris Quilt Top, Finally .

    Have been making this for about 6 Weeks now on and off.
    Thought I would never get to this stage but now I am really pleased with the outcome.
    At first I was worried about my choice of fabrics and kept changing them as I went along, but think I did well with what I had to work from.
    Next is the scary thought of adding the batting and backing and quilting it.Have a bit of trouble making up my mind how to quilt this.
    One option is to stipple very small inbetween everything or ecco quilt, what ddo you think? any other ideas please.

    Very nice! If you go to Google, click Images and search for William Morris quilts, you will see some finished ones to give you ideas (link below). Some are echo quilted, some have cross-hatch between the appliques. I like your idea of stippling between them. It would really make the appliques pop.

    Wow! I love your colors. Bright! I would echo around your appliqué then do some free form meander pattern not too dense. Happy quilting!

    very very nice. looks like you used matching thread to blanket stitch around each applique, alot of work. Have no opinion on how to quilt it but would love to own it.
