After discussing what flower we might be, Annie Copeland proposed a Flower Power swap.
Here are the guidelines that were posted:

Go to the website: http://www.thisgardenisillegal.com/cgi-bin/quiz.cgi. Do the questionnaire to discover what kind of flower you are. Thus inspired, make a quilt anywhere from 18" minimum to 48" maximum, with any of the sizes between these two in any direction, i.e. 20" x 46", etc. Your piece can be square, round, triangular, etc. It is up to you. You can even make a handbag or other wearable (and those don't have to fit in the 18" to 48" category because they aren't quilts), or you can even make an art doll if you choose, or perhaps an altered book or other art form. After we see if we have enough quilts, I might even get us some fun nontraditional venues like the big botanical garden right up the street from me. We'll see. Ladies and gents, start those quilts, art books, art dolls, wearables, or ok, if you want to paint your motorcycles, go for it!!! We can't be too crazy here! Just have fun and do it. Any questions, ask Annie Copeland , challenge mistress, at anneappraiser@yahoo.com.

Not quite a snapdragon, though it started out trying to be one -- it's turned out to be "Pretty Maids All in a Row" - which could be just about any flower growing in contrary Mary's garden.

The flower sections are done separately and stitched onto a hand-dyed background. I've used silk dupion and hand-dyed cottons for the floral areas and any greens that could be found for the leafy bits.

Me as a flower? Bright, bold, fun and whimsical. There is beauty
in all of us, no matter what kind of flower you may be.

God Laughs in Flowers
37" x 47"

The title comes from a quote that I love but don't know the source of.  I like the juxtaposition of the informal stripes and the freeform flowers.  I machine quilted it in light colored thread because I wanted the composition to have the main impact and the quilting to be secondary.

Cotton, machine pieced and quilted, hand beaded

The Iris has long been a favorite of mine for its beauty. I looked up the meaning of flowers and found Iris, an ancient Greek Goddess, was considered the messengers of the Gods and the Rainbow personified. She was considered the connection between heaven and earth. It is said purple irises were planted over the graves of women to summon the Goddess to guide the dead in their journey. In addition Faith, Hope, and Wisdom are attributed to this flower. May we all find our way.
