Introducing the newest block-of-the-month pattern exclusively from The Quilting Company: Morris Star, a medallion-style bed quilt that puts beautiful William Morris prints in the spotlight.
Made with time-honored template techniques, this stunning quilt is “a magnum opus” according to BOM video instructor Jenny Kae Parks. If you’re an intermediate- to advanced-level quilter looking to put your skills to work in an heirloom-quality quilt, this is for you.
This queen-size quilt features fabric with exclusive designs, some dating back to 1861, from the archives of The Original Morris & Co. They bring to life the artistry, vision and authentic style of William Morris. The medallion center and pieced Kaleidoscope border only accentuate the striking fabrics and style even more.
There is an instructional video for each installment in this eight-month BOM, which will result in a 104” x 104” finished quilt top. The video for the first month is already available; click here to watch the free Part 1 video in which Jenny demonstrates how to make the Kaleidoscope blocks.
Our editorial director Tricia Patterson will be blogging about her progress making Morris Star. Tricia is an experienced quilter who fell in love with the William Morris prints and is looking forward to making her own version of this showstopper. She’s received her fabric for the first month and is already at work on it!
You can read Tricia’s posts about her experience making each installment, as well as offering encouragement and camaraderie to other quilters making Morris Star.
