Turquoise



Still using the theme of our daughter's marriage and thanks to my daughter's idea of what to do for this month's theme, I have managed to complete the above.
The wedding commenced at 5.30pm.  We were at the venue from 10am busy with hair-do's, make up etc.  During this time our daughter wore a turquoise blouse (you are going to have to trust me on that as it does not show well in the photo).
Using some of my precious Kaffe Fasset and Bali batik fabrics, I put this little piece together and quilted it with a heart design.  In the photo is our daughter Orah, in the dressing room, wearing the turquoise blouse, having just had her hair done.

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.
