Audra's Iris Garden: Update

My daughter-in-law's birthday is March 10, and I am about halfway finished with her quilt - eeek! The pattern (Two Block Delight) and the fabrics (Audra's Iris Garden by Moda) are detailed
in this post.

After completing the "snowball" blocks, I laid out the darker squares for the "simplicity" blocks. After I diagonally marked the corner squares, chain-piecing made quick work of producing the corner squares.

I laid the fabrics out and mixed and matched till I was satisfied with the combination.

Katy assisted me by stretching her black fluffiness across the table.

I sewed the rows together to complete the Simplicity blocks.

I rearranged the Simplicity and Snowball blocks on my display board and have begun to sew the rows together.

Last night I made a pieced border and will use that along with a solid tan border and a darker purple print for the final border and back.

More to come!


  1. How did I NOT know you blogged Linda. I tracked you back from your comment. Ha, you can run but you cant hide. Love you blog! - and love your quilting. Miss seeing you on CT - know you are a busy bee like me.

    1. Jeannie, thank you for your sweet comments - I miss you too!

  2. That is going to be a stunning quilt and I can't wait to see what it looks like all put together. Isn't that a beautiful collection? I haven't gotten any yet, but it's on my wish list!

    1. Jennifer thanks for the encouragement. Yes I fell in love with that collection the minute I saw it. I still have quite a bit of it left, so I'll be enjoying it for awhile.
