Morriston: What's in a name?

We're sharing some classic prints today, from a new collection called Morriston

These prints use traditional motifs (paisley, scrolls, etc.) but add in a dramatic flair with refreshing color palettes: spring green, electric blue and black, and then coral, dusty lavender and black.
So, what do you think? Do these prints:
a) take their name and regal British feel from the Welsh town of Morriston;
b) draw inspiration from the work of influential 19th century designer William Morris;
c) offer a nod to a certain wildly popular PBS show featuring period English characters?

We'll let you decide...
But whichever answer you choose, we think you'll like these fabrics!

Also, if you're looking for a design idea, try the Diamond Delight pattern from Airborne Heirlooms. Such a unique center diamond motif, and great use of the large paisley and border print! You can find this pattern free on our website.

And one more thing...we're also offering double-sided pre-quilted fabric, perfect for a tote bag or e-reader cover. Beautiful, isn't it? Ask for it at your local quilt shop.

  1. Oh, these fabrics would be great in a quilt to lay over the back of the sofa. So pretty and elegant. Love them! I have no idea where the name comes from, it they do call out to me!
