Gardening is one of my favorite pastimes after quilting, so I had to finally design a quilt that highlights both of my loves. This iris quilt is machine appliqued flowers and dragonflies on a blue background. The basket blocks in the center are pieced with appliqued flowers also. Each iris design is slightly different(none of them are the same in the real garden) and are machine quilted to make them stand out from he background. There is an echo quilted pattern of dragonflies in the plain blue sections of the center.
All the quilting is done by professional quilter Arlene Calabrese of Sunflower Quilting.
The back has a pieced stripe of the the same iris fabric. I will add a hanging strip before shipping.
This quilt measures 55 1/2" square.
