|Closeup of Purple Iris a quilt by Ann Fahl|
As a child I always liked the little fuzzy parts of the iris. We lived in a huge old house in New Jersey, and there was a bed of iris around a patio in the back yard. The iris is such a complex flower; with petals growing upward and some gracefully flowing down; and then all the interesting stuff in the middle. So on the above iris, I embroidered the little sepals in a small circular pattern to make the contrast color stand out from the rich purple petals.

My original plans were to make a pattern for this quilt. But right now my energy is focused on getting the book about my cat quilts finished and ready for quilters to read. You can read a little more about the quilt on my website. Stay warm.
