This quilt was inspired by a photo of an iris taken by Marianne Phillips, the patron who commissioned this quilt. The larger flower petals were composed of smaller bits of fabric which were fused. The petals were then put together and quilted to a background. Fabric paints and Tsukineko inks were used for the veins and highlighting.
