Hi Molly,
Let me first say, that I'm a fan of Schreiner's blue irises.  Plus both 
HONKEY TONK BLUE'S, and YAQUINA BLUE'S, were Dykes medal winners,  for the 
Schreiner's, that was the main reason I made the cross. Also I had  learned that both 
irises shared some of the same parentage. From that cross, I  only ended up 
with four seedlings, which only one has bloomed so far. It is a  reversed 
amoena, with HTB markings on the falls. If your an iris-photo's member,  you can see 
a picture of it in the archives, Feb. 05', under the heading "early  spring!"
Back six or seven years ago, the Sutton's had several nice intro's  using 
SWEET MUSETTE, even one, George Sutton, named after his wife, so you know  it had 
to be a good one! <G> The seedlings I have from SM, I'll just try  crossing 
them with newer irises. This may be of some interest to you,  it's on Brighton 
Park Irises home page, and it's titled "A tribute to  Schreiner's iris
