    I am trying to use up some of my hand dyed fabric and love the iris flower. The first one is quilted first and then shaded with ink. I was trying for a dreamy Monet's garden look. I have had the background fabric for a year now and loved it when I dyed it. The second is just a stained glass version, really simple. I haven't quilted it yet. As always, I love to share my patterns, just pm me with information.

    Those are beautiful. My Mom raised iris - and every time I see one, I think of her.

    I used yarn in this one. It is easy to maneuver and I just zig zag over it.

    They are both beautiful. I especially love the stained glass one with the yarn leading.
