    Here's my most recent top finished. I'll be quilting it 2nd on my list after a scrappy I've got almost done.

    This is an Eileen Sullivan pattern along the same lines as the other quilt I finished in this link http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-38104-1.htm

    It'll be a decent sized wall-hanging when I'm done. It's a bit easier than the daffodil one I did. But, I still wouldn't recommend it to beginners. It's an intermediate to challenging pattern. Not for the faint of heart!

    Wow, that is lovely; and encourages me to get into the wonderful paper-piecing books I have here.

    Beautiful. Looks almost like a painting. Your fabrics are perfect to give it depth and dimension.

    Yours is lovely. I also made that pattern years ago and call it Stilted Iris... it must be around here someplace but no picture on the computer :lol: Once you get used to her method of foundation piecing.... it's a little easier isn't it?

    Oh, oh, oh! I've GOT to have one of those. My favorite flower is the iris, and that is very beautiful. I'm only a beginner paper piecer, so it'll have to wait for awhile.

    Actually, she doesn't really have a method...maybe you mean Carol Doak? One thing that makes these patterns harder for people-especially beginners is there isn't much in the way of directions. One practice block, but that's it.
