Spring - Four Seasons

This first picture is the start of my 'Spring' Four Seasons Quilt, I've spent a long time making up my mind about what to do this time. I have Iris bulbs outside my laundry window and also near the letter box that bloom every year. I don't know who planted them, I've lived here for nearly 25 years and they have bloomed every year.
After completing the applique I wanted to frame the flower and tried various ideas with pencil sketches.....drawing is not one of my talents.

Finally decided on log cabin blocks in a variety of purples. If I don't have visitors tomorrow I hope to get the quilting done.

I was going to add a few more pictures of my current projects but I'm having trouble uploading them, maybe it will be better in the morning.

Ooh it is beautiful- iris is such a beautiful flower, and purple is a lovely color, and ovals are wonderful shapes. The border is inspired and the whole thing looks wonderful overall. I know I would love to receive it, so I'm sure whoever the recipient is will also.
