    Just finished putting together a William Morris design. It's a bit smaller than the ones I normally do but I'd love to get your feedback on it.

    Many thanks

    Beautiful - reminiscent of Strawberry Thief but not. Is it an actual Morris design or a Morrisesque designed by you? I'm a bit of a Morris nut since I used to work for the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and used to live near his house in Gloucestershire.

    It's a Morris design that has been augmented by a designer. Unfortunately I can't remember her name. I will have to track that down.

    It is beautiful. Your fabric choices are so wonderful. You just have to take time to look at the details like those wonderful fabrics in the bird wings. So fun to see

    Very nice! I'd love to try that pattern - please post the name when you find it. I've gathered a large collection of batiks and use them for a lot of my applique.
