Review

More William Morris Applique: Spectacular Quilts and Accessories for the Home is a beautiful sequel to Michele Hill’s first book, William Morris in Applique. In this collection of 10 quilts and 55 appliques, Hill pays homage to Morris’s sense of pattern and design in home decor. She captures the spirit and style of the Arts and Crafts movement with her colorful floral applique patterns. Hill provides all the instructions and information you need to create each of her 10 exquisite patterns in More William Morris Applique. Each project includes detailed, step-by-step instructions, a comprehensive materials list, and plenty of full-color photos. Templates for all 55 appliques are included at the back of the book in full-size patterns that you can tear out. The back of the book also includes tutorials on basic quilting, applique, and embroidery techniques, so even beginners can tackles these projects! (Fave Crafts, 10/01/12)

Enhance the beauty of your home by making any of the 10 spectacular quilt or home-dec projects featured in this lavishly illustrated book. Fifty-five full-size applique designs printed on pullout sheets are provided, along with how-to basics for both fused and turned-edge applique. But in addition to the patterns, you’ll enjoy gorgeous photos and fascinating bits of history about Morris and the Arts & Crafts movement. (American Quilter, November 2012)

I loved all the patterns and designs in this book.

Some day I will get around to making one or more of them but for the moment I will be content just to fantasize.

Since I am an appliqué artist, I had to take a look at the second book of William Morris designs.

I bought the original William Morris in Applique a while ago, started on a sampler project, and it stalled. Nonetheless, the moment I saw that the follow-up book was available, I pre-ordered it. Even if I never DO get around to making these projects, I like to sit on the couch and pretend I will... quilter's porn, perhaps. Because this book (and its predecessor) are so incredibly beautiful that they inspire me.

If you are a fan of the Arts & Crafts movement, you probably know who William Morris is: one of the dudes who inspired it all in the late 1800s. As the author writes, "His express aim was to restore traditional crafts and methods to a society that was being denigrated by mechanical industry, destroying '...man's natural purpose and sense of life.'" The Arts & Crafts movement was (and is) characterized by natural elements, hand crafting, and design elements inspired by nature. Everything in one's life should be beautiful or functional, preferably both. Morris designed furniture, fabrics, wallpaper, and other "decorative elements." His wife did a lot of embroidery, too -- needlework that will take your breath away.

What Michele Hill did in these books is translate Morris designs into something you can put on a quilt. Since these are all nature-inspired (birds, flowers, etc.) that means applique -- and OH BOY is this impressive applique. No cutesy Little-Bo-Peep here: The 10 projects (with 55 applique designs, all of which are provided on full-size pattern sheets) are elaborate grown-up designs. If you like the idea of Baltimore Album quilts though its traditional flower-pictures aren't quite your style (and the scale of those projects doesn't scare you), you may very well like these.

Since I am an appliqué artist, I had to take a look at the second book of William Morris designs. Both these books are part of my collection. The book contains an excellent short biography about Morris in the front of this book and it really illustrations that Morris was ahead of his time!! The author really shows the actual museum carpets and tapestry of Morris then she interprets the design into modern works of art. This book makes an interest coffee table book, excellent read. The book includes 10 new projects plus 55 appliqué designs, but this book is not for a beginner, it does contain a bunch of good illustrated techniques in the back of the book. If you are and intermediate quilter this might be a challenge you need. The modern projects can be done with any appliqué method you choose, but most of the projects are shown in machine button-hole stitch with beading and embroidery added. A couple of really cute baby are shown, but the project that I consider by far the most gorgeous is the table cloth. I want to make all these projects; they are so striking in a modern updated look, but when to find the TIME! A must have for a lover of all things appliqué!

I grew up in UK where William Morris textiles and wallpaper were to be found in almost every Victorian style home. Even as a child my eyes were constantly moving over his designs to discover more and more that hadn't been seen before! His love of nature and depiction of what he saw around him is extraordinary and now has captured the modern world, especially in quilting.
My collection of William Morris style fabric has grown by leaps and bounds because of the renewal and discovery of this wonderful art form. The patterns in the book will lead to more exploration.

This book is excellent! Great designs, great color ideas and execution. The artist/author does a wonderful job of design, Morris information and resources. Her first book is a must have as is this book.

The motifs here are good and worth the price of the book - not so thrilled with some of the quilt ideas or colourways, as they aren't very Morris or Arts and Crafts (sorry, Michele!)

This is one of the best machine applique books around. Wm. Morris's patterns are very unique but not complicated to copy. They give you the opportunity to embellish and enhance your design to your liking.
