Iris Applique Quilt

This  quilt is off my quilting frame, all bound, and even washed.

 This kit was given to me by a customer who decided she would never end up sewing this quilt.

 I love applique, so it was a great project for me.

 I even discovered I had a magazine that sold the kit.  The kit was selling in 1980.

 You can see the blue dots on the quilt did not wash out.  Is it because it's old?

 I changed the quilting a little.  I scribbled in the crosshatches to make things stand out more and added lines to the straight lines for the same reason.


  1. Just gorgeous. I hope the dots fade with time. Just a whole lot of WOW is in this quilt!!

  2. More often than not the dots did not wash out--even when the kits were new. I do not know if they will gradually fade over the course of multiple washings.
    I've always loved that pattern--but never bought one of the kits.
    Yours is so beautiful!

  3. Beautiful work! So glad your customer gave you the kit. It needed a perfect home.
    Have a great day.
    Always, Queenie
