    gathering pictures of quilt i made since joining(IRIS ) quilt mother-in-law

    i have been trying to use new blocks or techniques that i have learned through this site.thank-you for your encouragement to think outside of the box .

    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.

    thank-you all.

    As a garden, purple, bird-loving, free spirit - I LOVE it. Great colours, interesting design and the border treatment is just fantastic. Very cleverly put together and a total one-off. Thanks so much for sharing with us.

    What a great quilt. I love the pattern and the different fabrics you used and the large size makes it extra nice.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.
