Morris Patchwork: Simple shapes and not so simple

Bordered Diamonds by Gert at Real Men Stitch
A very nice use of the Best of Morris prints.


It's a Kaffe Fassett & Liza Lucy pattern, 
perfect for showing off a collection of fabrics.


Watch how Gert's progressing at his blog:

The pattern's in Simple Shapes, Spectacular Quilts

Rectangles or strips...
The Morris Apprentice Cobblestone Quilt Kit from 
Hollyhill Quilt Shoppe & Mercantile.

They mixed Morris and batiks. The kit's probably sold
out but the combination is worth noting.

Simple shape, complex cutting. 

Avalon Bloom does the cutting for you. See their Kaleidoscope kits here:

Dear Barbara, thank you very much for showing my work in progress here on your blog (my blog is Real Men Stitch) I really love the William Morris prints and I think my quilt will look great once it's finished. I will keep you posted about the progress of my quilt.

How fun to see one of my blocks on your blog post! (I'm firstlightdesigns.com) I just bought a piece from your Union Blues line to add to my stash for this quilt in progress.
