Water marbled Peacock


Peacock on hand water marbled fabric
18" x 22"
Appliqué and beading

This piece was really what I call a squirrel. (Have to stop everything and do it now project) I have a few water marbled fat quarters with aqua, green and dark blue. The more I looked at those, the more I was sure that those fat quater wanted to be a peacock. The movement of paint reminded me of feathers and the piece was screaming at me to be made. No I don't hear voices lol (Not THAT crazy)

 You know what I mean, that impression that you know the perfect project for THAT fabric.

This piece came together seamlessly (pun not intended) I knew exactly what I wanted to do and how to do it. What perfect quilting was needed. It is a wonderful feeling that I wish I would have more often.

  6. You are right - it was perfect for a peacock. I can see why you had to stop everything and quilt it.

  7. It certainly IS a wonderful feeling that dreamy DrEAMi! You've got it perfectly, both in the intent of a Drop Everything And Make it! project and in the final finished gorgeous project! I love the peacock head only in the corner, so unusual and so right. As is the quilting! Thanks for linking this up Yanicka!
