The Iris Bishop Country Side Collection
Serial Number: IB Countryside
The iris bishop Countryside Celebration collection for 24 st punch card and electronic machines - This collection contains 12 different scenes inspired by a different month the English countryside. Iris writes: "This collection of designs inspired by the countryside, has been one of the enjoyable and absorbing projects I have ever worked on. I have tried to combine all elements of the countryside, including flowers, woodland, streams and wildlife, as well as some architectural features we find in the landscape like churches, windmills, etc.
"For each month of the year there is a full pictorial design, but within each one there are borders and motifs like butterflies, foxes and flowers which can be used separatly. As usual with my designs there are short "floats" on the reverse side of the fabric, making them practical for all purposes.
"I hope you will enjoy delving into this collection as much as I have enjoyed compiling it and find something for everyone who has an interest in our wonderful countryside."
Countryside Celebration also has several garment illustrations by Iris Bishop on how to use these motifs in a garment to help you along.
