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!
