Iris Jacket size 12-14

Heather Myers, Castlegar, BC

Dimensions: 19" x 30"

Techniques: Pieced, machine-quilted; machine and fused appliqué, free-motion embroidery

Artist’s Statement:
This jacket, like many quilting projects, is like the garden it reflects—some favourites and familiar things, some new techniques, components and colours and some exchanges with fellow “gardeners.” Thanks Verna for the dare, Val for the iris catalogue, Laura & Gloria for art-quilting sessions and Aunt Hazel for raw silk, hoarded for just the right project. I started with a Marilyn Stubbs Cooney iris pattern as a guide, altered, and added my own designs using a Vogue 8910.
