Ideas and Iris

I saw this block blog hopping and couldn't resist playing with it in EQ. I like it scrappy, and the sashing with scrappy cornerstones seems to separate them and make them float. Ahh, there's too many quilts, not enough time! Maybe I'll write out my own instructions and make it my guild's block of the month for May. :) Does anyone know what my copyright restrictions would be if there's lots of different versions of instructions to make this block, and nobody seems to know the name or original designer? We wouldn't be using it for profit, or trying to sell the instructions I make, just a guild block swap.



Looking down into the iris you saw as a bud a couple of posts ago. Wish you all had scent-o-vision on your computers and could smell them too!

And I may be weird, but I like this extreme closeup of the iris, the way the little beards start out lavendar, fade to white, then turn yellowish toward the center of the flower. And I love the bit where the white and purple mix, in tangled stripes.

Hey there ForestJane. Thanks for your comment over on my blog. I see what you mean about how you can use the block Finn had as a rectangular quilt. Very clever. I love the sashings the same colour as the background fabric. This would work a treat!!!!!!

Re copyright, if you write your own instructions and don't copy them directly from another source then there's no infringement - in fact, the copyright would then rest with you! You can't copyright
ideas, only the actual product. Hope this helps!

Hi Jane, love what you came up with using that same block..the cornerstones and lattice do seem to make the block float..neat!!

Those iris pictures are exquisite! Iris is my "favoritest" flower of all and I am impatiently awaiting mine to bloom. The buds are so ready to pop soon!

After seeing your pictures I had to run out to the garden and check on my Irises...still a few weeks away!

The quilt looks great - I really like the sashing and corner stones idea. You'll have to make this one :-)

Irises are one of my most favourite flowers and your pictures are stunning!

I love the totally scrappy look of your blocks and the way you have them set -- I may have to make that quilt too!
Don't iris just smell heavenly?
