Iris quilted card
I was very excited about this card when I designed it, but I found out it's got a lot of little pieces :-) Good thing I have a helper these days, sorry April! :-) Also, I made one of my dumber mistakes when I was making this...I had cut out a stack of 8 backgrounds at once, then took one and put it on top of my batting and interfacing to make the card. Then I grabbed the wrong stack, fused the leaves to the top layer, and STITCHED through all of the layers on all three leaves before I noticed...oh boy...
I may try to make a kit for it, or a wall quilt based on it, but I'm afraid the free motion stitching might scare people off. It's not very difficult stitching, mostly scribbling, but I know that still makes some people nervous :-) What do you think?

I am a homeschooling mom of three fun kids, who are now old enough that I have a little time to pursue my passion for sewing! After several years of making quilted cards and art quilts, I'm now designing kits and patterns. Some of my designs have been in Keepsake Quilting and Art Quilting Studios magazine! I teach classes online, and am starting to do more traveling and teaching. I also have many tutorials, including some on YouTube. I am blessed to live in Alaska where I am surrounded by the inspiration provided by the beauty of God's creation!
