PEACOCK FEATHERS





I found this wonderful piece of fabric to use as a background as it was such a good match to the thread colour we were given (which I had and which made it so easy) but was at a loss as to what to place onto it until my sister in New Zealand gave me this wonderful idea, so thank you for that Rosemary you can take all the praise for that.  I thoroughly enjoyed drawing out the design and then implementing it on fabric.  It was appliqued and thread painted and I was quite pleased with the result.  Apologies for this late entry but we had a huge storm yesterday and our internet went down.  Anyway, better late than never.  I hope you all enjoy this piece.

  1. I love this quilt. The colours are beautiful and the quilting really sets it off. The feathers look as though they are dancing.

  3. I too love it. A wonderful blue, and the feathers are morphing into flowers in such a delicate way.
