Hello! I'm an Iris!

Well, I seem to have figured this Blogger thing out, thanks for the invite! I am looking foreward to sharing in the challenge process with everyone.
I have a collection of iris fabric from the past 15 years! I am looking forward to putting some of it to use. We will be able to post pictures here eventually right? Thought I would pull out all my fabric and take an inspiration shot, perhaps tomorrow.
I love the Flower Power title. Sends me back to high school! :)
Happy to be here!

I am a snap dragon

My name is Lorraine Strohkirch and have no idea how you all posted your flower in here. Just wanted to let you know. I do feel that I am a Hibiscus flower and not a snap dragon..lol so that is what I am going to do for an art quilt/purse or whatever comes to mind. This is going to be so much fun. Thank you for doing this Ann. hugs, Lorraine

I'm a Nigella

I am a flower that I had never heard of called Nigella. It's also called "Love in a Mist" or "Devil in the Bush". I really SHOULD do a poppy since I adore them and my official studio name is Painted Poppy Studio.Hmmm---gosh, Pamela, I didn't think of cheating! LOL


Oh, and I can't figure out how to edit an already existing post so sorry for the new one!
Wow - another opportunity to be a Flower Child since I'm never going to become a Flower Adult.
Since Pamela posted her In Full Bloom entry I decided to add mine too. It is called "Late Bloomer" and is really a picture of the flower that I am. But I will try to pick a REAL flower for our challenge. Looking forward to seeing everyone's work.
PS - Pamela - I love the eyes staring out from those Susans. I'd love to hang out in your head for a few minutes.....

Here's my Flower

I am a

What Flower
Are You?

"You are more than what you seem. Outwardly, you are a confident person with just a little bit of a temper. Inwardly, you are someone who needs some serious TLC and attention."

This is me!!! Now, what to do with it.

Hello Flowers-
I took the quiz & came out as Hydrangea, Snapdragon, Rose, Echinachea & something else I can't remember. I did love the perfume quiz Annie gave the link to. That was spot on, even down to my own birthstone & a favorite. My baby girl's, ok she's a cat but my baby all the same, her full name is Tigerlily or Lily for short. I may do something around that if it's allowed.

Cathy, I love your Canna, double chins & all, I can really relate to that.

Looking forward to this.


how many flowers are there

Has anyone figure out the total list of flowers?

We have canna, daffodils, daisies, iris, snapdragon ... others? Pam Robson in Kansas ....

Hello all you floral people. I did the quiz and didn't like the flower I was, so then I lied abit and other flowers came up...but still not one I feel I am. I think I'm a poppy so that's what I will do! HaHa! Bratty to the end,
Pamela. I haven't started or anything so here's a pic of my IN FULL BLOOM quilt. It's called "Black Eyed Susans and Fruit"

"I am woman..."

This still needs quilting and binding but otherwise it is done. The title, which I may write in the top border, is continued on the quilt itself, "there is nothing I "canna" do". Yep, I am a canna! Funny thing about this quilt, I had started drawing it out as soon as I took the quiz so had it already to go when the challenge was issued. Oh, in case you're wondering that IS my face, double chin and all! LOL

Flower Power Challenge Guidelines

This is a QuiltArt List challenge. If you are not currently a member of the QuiltArt List, go to www.QuiltArt.com and sign up. Then go to the website:


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.

Deadline will be Sept. 15, and then you are going to send your jpgs to Judy Smith at judy@quilt.net and also to me and Judy will get them up on the site. 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, Annie Copeland is the challenge mistress, and you can contact me at anneappraiser@yahoo.com.

Welcome to the New FLOWER POWER challenge blog

This blog will be used to upload pics of flower power challenge made in response to the what flower am i link! If you would like to join please contact Anne Copeland on the Quiltart list.

Thanks....Maggie in sc who looks to be the webmistress of the moment:> Did I say I was a daffodil:> This is my daffodil quilt....my challenge is done:> for once!
