Peacock block finished


My part on this block is finished except for adding legs.. It was really an interesting mix of fabrics and colors. I liked the paisley wing on peacock and will use the idea again... The "feathery" tail is heavily beaded with purple and turquoise beads but they don't show in the photo... This block is ready to mail to Emmy in the Netherlands and she will be the last to work on it... I love how these blocks travel the globe.....



Att: Miss Cathy K....please note that I did a 7 layer seam!!!!

It's the seam within the heart by the fan? Lovely. You surely found the right thread/yarn for the tail! And the other peacock's beaded tail and body is just gorgeous! Thanks for sharing.

Gerry I absolutely love your peacock. You do such gorgeous work. I couldn't make such a peacock without a proper drawing provided to me.

Gerry, your peacock is drop-dead gorgeous!! Beads, "feathers" - he's got it all!!! And KUDOS to you for doing a 7-layer seam! Woo-hoo! (did you post a picture of it in the Challenge album?). How do you do it? You just keep getting better and better!! Hugs, Cathy
