Last evening at Eastern Edge Quilt Guild, the program was Iris Folding. This technique originated in Holland. It is called iris folding because the center of the design resembles the iris of a camera or eye. Traditionally, origami paper is used for the main design and holographic paper is used to fill in the center. Fabric was used in our project.
The quilter, who demonstrated this technique, was very well prepared and had all the fabric strips cut and folded for each person. Thanks Sheila! It was a great project.
