Tile Quilt Flowers


To design flowers in the Tile Quilt form I  needed to draw a simple/stylized design ....  I've been working on drawings of a number of flowers;-  iris, rose, pansy, daffodil, cosmos, magnolia and daylily so far....

Here is the daylily block in the tile format.  I've chosen batiks and hand dyes for the  flower to make it stand out above the background of the greyer shades of the William Morris fabrics.....





The day lilly is needle turn applique and involves 21 pieces.  I am keen to try one of the other flower designs using fabric with a more modern palette and design....
