Flowers and a New Video

The weather is warm here, some would say hot but as I have probably said before I’m cold if it gets much cooler than 75 degrees. The garden looks like spring with flowers, bees, birds, butterflies, and lizards!first iris 2016My first irises have come up. I didn’t plant these here, they were displaced when the back garden was professionally reconstructed but they ended up in a perfect location.  I thought I would share a few of my iris quilts from the past…

I only make and use original designs now but years ago I bought and use a part of a pattern from Grannie “G” Applique for this last piece (the iris head). I think she has some of the most beautiful applique designs and patterns! Geri was kind enough to feature this on her website way back then.

While we are talking flowers, here is my most recent video lesson for a fun and simple flower project:

    And here I am excited that the snow is melting off my deck! I do love irises and wish their season of bloom were longer. Maybe the solution would be to make one or two in fabric like you so beautifully did. I like all your swirly backgrounds, and an especially taken with the speckled outer part of the iris on the upper right.

      Thank you, Joanna. My men would love there to be snow on our deck! That speckled part is actually a purchased black fabric that had irregular white dots/speckles. That was the first quilt I ever free-motion quilted!
