Moda's sales reps are showing quilt shop buyers another color collection
of my Best of Morris line.
We printed a separate line of the same prints called the Morris Jewels. Yardage is scheduled to be delivered mid-July with pre-cuts like Layer Cakes in early summer.
Morris Jewels in Pink Garnet colorway
Here's the description:
William Morris meets pure color in The Morris Jewels. Fabric historian Barbara Brackman has updated favorite prints by the nineteenth-century design master. Twenty-first-century color means jewel tones that give today’s quilters a range from pink garnet and emerald green to sapphire blue and topaz. You’ll love putting color on color with these classic yet contemporary prints.

Spectacular fabric calls for spectacular plans. I haven't seen a square inch of this fabric YET, but I have been Photoshopping. I'm thinking explosions of color.
Maybe tamed with a yellow Bella Solid as a neutral.
Lime Green always makes a good neutral.
The inspiration here is those turn-of-the-century
Actual Star quilt from southeastern Pennsylvania about
1880-1920. From Cowhollow Collectibles.
William Morris meets the Pennsylvania Mennonites.
Virtual Star quilt
The collection also offers 10 colors shaded in Grunge fashion,
adding another layer of texture.
Would William be on board?
He WAS a radical in many ways.
More Photoshopping for inspiration
I can Photoshop a lot better than I can sew
so these are not going to get made.
Unless, of course, you readers accept the challenge.
Scaling back the dream blocks......
Here's a pattern for a 32" block from BlockBase & EQ7
And a link to a pattern Lissa did for McCall's Quilting about a year ago, using 2-1/2" Moda
They offer a free download.
You could re-color it, sorta like this.
