    Enci--

    These blocks are just beautiful! Iris are my favorite flowers, as you can tell from my screen name. I just have a couple of questions for you:

    Do you have measurements for the size of your beginning squares?
    Can you tell us how far your cuts are from the corners of your stacked squares?
    Do you use a bias strip of fabric for your stem and leaf pieces?
    Are the leaf pieces made essentially like the stems?

    Thanks for showing us a new way to make a beautiful block!
