Black Iris

The black iris is Jordan’s national flower and it will bloom in April. It’s very unusual and rare and not many people have seen it in real. But you can find it in paintings or as here as a sculpture.The colour is not really black more very dark purple they say. You can also find lighter shades.
My quilting group is going to make a quilt with black iris on. We are going to sell it in a big bazaar in the beginning of May. The money they get from the bazaar will go to rebuild Gaza. We are trying to find patterns that will look like an iris and we have found many to choose between. Some of the women dye the fabrics by themselves. And the colours turns out to be very nice and in many shades.
