Hi folks!  When I’m planning a Quillspiration post I often go to my quilling boards on Pinterest and browse.  When I see a few great projects of a similar theme, I choose that theme and search for more projects that go with it.

This time my eye was caught by some gorgeous quilled flowers.  But I decided I cannot do a Quillspiration post just on quilled flowers, there would be waaaaay too many to choose from!!  So I decided to do a series of Quillspiration posts with quilled flowers, starting with some gorgeous paper quilled iris flowers that caught my eye.

Since I am focusing on only paper quilled iris flowers, I am sharing designs from simple to complex, so if you are looking for inspiration for a project you can choose from a difficulty level that fits your project!
