For The Love Of Iris

I have been in love with flowers since I was a little girl.  Then again I've been in love with many things since I was a little girl.  My sister and I both love flowers with the dahlia being both our favorite flower.  I also love iris and, when I was gardening, loved planting iris bulbs.  They're such a beautiful flower.  Unfortunately they don't last long.

So, it's no surprise that when I was designing fabrics I would create some with iris in them.  Well, when I saw the Maximalist Design Challenge on Spoonflower I knew the different colors of iris would be perfect for a bright, splashy design.

Shown below is my challenge design.  It's definitely colorful, bright, and splashy.  I love it and hope you do too.

This, however, isn't the first time I've used iris in some of my Spoonflower Challenge entries.  Shown below is the design I entered into the Gardening Challenge.

The two designs shown above aren't the only designs I've created using iris.  I've created iris fairies and included them in one of my custom fabric designs, like the one shown below:

For sure three designs should be enough.  For me not so much.  Shown below are two other iris custom fabric designs I've created over the years.  I think they're simple, pretty and elegant and hope you would agree.
