This project began as a request from my Step-Mom (whose name just happens to be Iris).
She wanted an iris wall hanging for a certain space in her home, so the project was limited to size.
She has never asked me for anything, so I really wanted to do this for her!
I tried to finish by her birthday, and I would have, too, if it hadn’t of been for a broken part on my sewing machine and Covid.
Iris will have her wall hanging for Christmas!
I don’t do a lot for a label, but it does have one!
And the iris fabric on the back was one of the pieces that Iris gave me to use for the project.
I was going to echo quilt a .25 inch around the iris (it is closely outlined with invisible thread), but then I immediately forgot that I was going to do that, and just forged ahead with the background filler. Oops.
I need to find a suitable frame and then she will be ready for gifting.
At 7:30 am, it is dark and eerie, and it will stay that way all day. I live in Washington state, so I am currently living under cover of thick smoke. There is no going outside, except to work and back. No work today, so I get to be home all day! Yay!
Since Farm Girl is finished, I will consider my slow Sunday project to be free motion quilting on the Let’s Sew quilt. I am certainly slow at it!
But I am making progress!
And today is a good day to spend quilting!
