My very favorite flower is the iris. There was a HUGE field of iris that I would make a point to drive by when we lived in Denver; it made my heart soar to see these beautiful flowers – an entire field of them.
A few years ago I approached the marvelous quilting ladies in our church to request a quilt of irises (I provided the materials and the pattern). The Quilting Ladies were absolutely swamped with prior orders of quilts; however, one talented quilter said she would take on this project by herself. She finished a few blocks but became ill and of course was unable to finish.
I can’t quilt. I can’t sew anything, actually (not that it matters or is ‘connected’ – but I also don’t iron).
Found these snapshots of some of the Iris blocks and determined to ferret out where the heck I stored the pattern, fabric, and finished and unfinished blocks. Where are they???? We moved from a larger home to a small garden home and I recall that I reminded myself: “Put these pieces in a safe place in case you find another willing quilter.”
Where is this safe place??
You would think that in a much smaller home, I could find these materials . . . hah!
