I love this! It is my inspiration for a quilt that I have begun today, just wanted to pop over and tell you. I looked at your blog last night and studied this quilt. I have it as my screen saver. It his me today how to do it with the William Morris fabrics I have. I have 1 jelly roll, 1 honey bun, 2 turnovers and 1 charm pack. I got them back before they discontinued it on sale! :)
So, today I made the first block. I"ll show ya if you want to write to me...
