The iris tales its name from the Greek word for rainbow because of the many colors of different irises. There are around 300 species of this plant! Today’s chart is based on a beautiful vintage painting of a yellow Iris germanica, a very common garden flower. if you liked my Vintage peony chart, than you are sure to enjoy this one too!
The chart is relatively big and uses a lot of close colors, so I would recommend it for patient stitchers. Try using colored canvas to make the finished embroidery even more vintage!
