Labor of Love

<This quilt was made by my friend and quilt teacher Kay. She made it for her mother it took two years to hand applique the 20 Irises in the medallion and borders. She had originally started it for her mother’s 75th birthday, but it did not get completed until this year.

Kay gave me permission to share it on my blog since she does not have a blog of her own. I think this quilt is a tribute to persistence. The pattern was found in an old Quilter’s Newsletter.
