Audra's Iris Garden


Mom (Linda Brannock) sent me a package this week. Oh lawdy! She knows I love Bearded Iris. 
This fabric line is Audra's Iris Garden by Brannock & Patek for moda (available January 2013).
 Along with the large Bearded Iris are smaller Iris over a subtle background print. I cannot decide which are my favorite colors!
 I love the little feathers; they will work in well with many other prints I have in my stash.
As will these "clouds" and stripe (bottom left)

The next two photos are also Brannock & Patekbut the line is Awakening (no link yet). 
Sweet!
 I love mixing and playing with them to see how they look together.
 My Irish soul has a special fondness for greens.
 Spots of lavender make me smile.
 Perhaps I will have to make a red quilt?
Or a fabulous chocolate one?
Lots of pink, lots of purple, and lots of green (oh, and yellow too) equals lots of smiles on my face.
Smiling, Irish, Iris lover here!

Hooked Rugs

During my visit to Mom's (Linda Brannock's) house, I got some photos of her hooked rugs.  Pot of Flowers and Friends canvas available online.
Pot of Flowers and Friends
Canvas for  My Daughter, My Sister, and Me  is available at Wooly Woolens.
My Daugher, My Sister and Me
 Mom's Ladies Garden Club & Sewing Circle (Inspired by Mom's quilt in her  book Miss Jump's Farewell)  is there too.

I love this house on the hill. 
This log cabin (below) canvas will be available soon. 
Big Log House
 I dragged the hallway runner out into the yard for a photo. I am glad I did. I love photographing Mom's hand work. It is just too bad I don't get to visit her that often.
Pop on over to see what's available at Wooly Woolens.
Enjoy what's left of our holiday weekend!

Wonderful Lavenders and Greens.
Yardage of the large florals.
Light Tans.
Delicious Reds.
My (Karmen's) favorite florals.
And prim Dark Tans.
Blues I (Karmen) cannot wait to cut into.
And luscious black!

These lovely blocks, done with Lilac Hill, were made by Karin (Life in the Slow Lane) and photographed by my daughter Karmen (A Quilter Awakens). Karmen and her husband are coming to Kansas City for a visit this week! Maybe we can get some new pictures for my blog?
