I think I have a series going! Thanks to everyone sharing ideas and techniques I put 3D 'fuzzies' on this iris with rayon embroidery thread. I stretched fabric over a purchased stretched art canvas and mounted the iris panel to that. Ready to hang!

So very pretty, a real talent for thread painting irises...when do we see a blue/purple iris?

Thank you,Edyth, a purple iris is waiting on my pc for me to get more printer fabric...I am too lazy to do the freezer paper and muslin thing for some reason. Winter is hanging on so fiercely, it almost makes one think Spring may have a fight on its hands this year! So for now, thread flowers!

Thanks, Jeannie62! You are so blessed to be able to draw and paint your iris quilt... I am still stuck at kindergarten stick figures. But this photo to fabric form of thread painting is so like paint by number for me, which I loved as a child. "?) The tricky part is which way/how to mount the art. So many good ideas are shared on this site and I am 'lapping' it up. Learning, learning, learning!
