Colorful Peacocks

149Annette sent this quilt and it’s simply AMAZING!!

Her mom is addicted to embroidery …I am pretty sure. I think she must do this for several hours a day…and it’s a great thing because they make a great team! after she does the embroidery Annette puts the blocks into quilts.


Each peacock is the same …but all of the colors of embroidery are different and I love the use of color in each one….It was fun looking at them while I was quilting.

I decided to change up the background quilting…I alternated between leaves and echoing. I quilted feathers in the sashings …


Then I framed it in with leaves & feathers,

Isn’t it lovely?

These birds are flying back home. 🙂

  1. Amazingly beautiful. I love to do hand embroidery and have done blocks for several quilts and I can appreciate the love and time spent doing it. Kudos to the makers and the quilter! Another work of art to be appreciated by the heirs…..
