So I needed something to perk up the log cabin blocks in the previous post.
I drew an iris on a piece of freezer paper and used it for a pattern. I cut out a piece of stabilizer (it's at the top of the photo). The I pinned a piece of fabric to the freezer paper and colored in the iris with my Tsukineko inks.
I cut out the fabric iris and fused the stabilizer to the back. Then I used fabric glue to turn the edges over the stabilizer.
Clearly I didn't measure so well, because there is a lot of white sticking out around the edges.
So I got the inks back out and colored in the edges.
I pinned it to my log cabin background -- see the previous post for more about that.
I did a lot of stitching on the iris to give it texture before I layered it with the batting and backing.
Here is a shot of the backside before trimming and binding.
