If you like irises, you'll love this celebration of sunshine-yellow iris blossoms, appliquéd on a cream background and set off with a richly-coloured border.
The panel is created in stained glass patchwork, with each patch of fabric framed by an outline of gold bias binding, creating a classic Art Nouveau effect. The blooms have petals in shades of golden yellow and yellowy-orange; a little tongue of bronze fabric creates the centre of each blossom, and the stamens are suggested with faceted orange beads.
For the border, I used a random-dyed batik in rich orange and cerise, with an overprinting of gold in a crackle pattern.
The whole panel is backed and bound in plain cream, with a line of decorative machine stitching in a contrasting colour; a hidden casing at the top back of the quilt will hold your own batten/hanging pole.
The quilt will be sent to you cushioned with reusable bubble-wrap, and packed into a large recyclable jiffy bag. Hanging pole and fixings are not included.
Size: c16 x 21in (42 x 54cm)
Irises take their name from the Greek word for rainbow; the Greek goddess Iris was a messenger to the gods, and supposedly used the rainbow as a bridge between heaven and earth. Iris flowers certainly come in virtually every colour of the rainbow, plus pure white and almost-black; I've created the design here in shades of gold, but you'll also find a purple version among the items in my shop.
