my begining ingredience for this special quilt for my mother-in-law (IRIS) name and favorite flower
shades of purple /favorite bird the hummingbirds
some fabrics are hard to find ,savanger other techniques to make the design.
appliqued a few iris blocks found some great puple shade and found some super hummingbird fabric
blocks to use for centers
first time to make iris applique block up worked up iris fabric print was hard for me to find at the time
and butterflies always go with flowers and free spirits
so that is how this quilt came about.
