Large Wall Hanging Iris Folding Pattern

by Susanne

I am looking for a large (to be framed in a 12 x 12 shadow box frame) Iris Folding Pattern. I am not a quilter, so I don't know where to look for something like this...I do Iris Folding on my greeting cards but want to create something unique for a wall in my house...Any suggestions where to find something like this?

Thank you,


Hi Susanne

What a great idea, to make a large wall hanging from an Iris Folding pattern. It sounds like it would be a spectacular way of decorating and your item would be unique because of your choice of papers.

I have never made a large iris fold picture myself, but do you know what? You could take a smaller iris folding pattern (such as one of your card patterns) that you like and expand it to the size you want it to be and use that as a guide. It would be easiest to do this on a photocopier I think - just find a pattern you like and enlarge it or have it enlarged at a printer's shop.

If the expanded pattern made the folds too large you could add more strips of paper spaced closer together. Keep turning your work over as you make it to check and see that you like the effect. Just move the layers closer together or further apart as you like, and fill the shaped space with folded strips till you are happy with the end result.

Have any other readers made a wall hanging with an Iris Fold pattern? Do you have any suggestions for Susanne?

When you make your wall hanging I would love to see it, Susanne. I hope you'll take a photo and show it to me ☺

Have fun!
