Friends Posted August 12, 2013 by marionmeyers This beautiful quilt was designed by Michele Hill based on William Morris and Company designs. This William Morris inspired quilt was designed by Michele Hill. It is raw edge applique finished with a machine blanket stitch. I LOVED making this one. It took two years. People ask me how long it took and I really should track the hours as I make this type of quilt. Next time. This photo does a lovely job of showing the background quilting in the outer blocks, along the narrow borders and the echo quilting of the poppy border. Two of my favourite blocks. Too bad you can't see the gold thread in the echo quilting. Poppies all around the inner border.
