Friday again and another flower is produced. This week I have made an iris. An iris is a wonderful garden plant that comes most commonly in many different shades of purples but other colors as well. The name Iris means rainbow so it speaks for itself. I have captured a few different iris flowers to show.

I used two purples for my iris block. A dark for the lower petals and a light for the upper petals. Before stitching I painted the edges of the light petals to give them more definition.

They really stand out with the stitching added.

My final block looks like this.
