William Morris Fabric

"More than anyone, textile designer William Morris influenced the swirling graphic style that would eventually become the Arts & Crafts movement. Curling vines and flowers hovering between naturalistic and stylized, and the shimmering rich colors make this magical garden print worthy of any of your most enchanting projects. Larger flowers are about 2", from the 'Morris Meadows' collection by Michele Hill for In The Beginning Fabrics."

This is from the equilter site. I love these prints. They are such classics, and they would go with the crazy scrap quilt that I'm working on right now. I'll show you soon. Here are two more of my favorites, below. I can't just pick one. Haha.

This last one looks like one of those "Magic Eye" pictures, but I've tried it and it doesn't "work." Wouldn't this fabric be perfect in a kaleidoscipe quilt? Wow!

I just ordered several of those yesterday for my kaleidoscope quilts! I was so happy to find them (and lots of sale fabrics for quilt backs) at eQuilter yesterday.

Beautiful! Maybe those are the fabrics I should use to make crazy quilt upholstery for my Morris chair. Entirely appropriate but probably not at all practical, the fabric might not wear well.

It's hardish to find now, but I like Barbara Brackman's William Morris fabric:
