I regularly start things, set them aside, then pick them up again. Often it can be months later and a few times years later. Not sure how long ago I started these blocks, but they all got set aside.This past week I stumbled on them and thought it was time to do something with them. I quickly realized I needed some sort of a border to go between the birds. I wanted black with white dots, plus I preferred a Batik fabric, as the birds were done in Batiks. So a trip to the quilt store found this. No not dots, but I did think this was a really nice alternative. Oh yes, perfect. The outside border was a Batik I had in my stash and shared many of the colors of the birds. Off to the quilter now!It is Morewood Mystery quilt instructions for January. I selected this very white background and wonder if it is going to be too much having gotten the first true complete block together. Too late now, and with two addition colored prints that go into this quilt hopefully that will tone down the bright white.
Isn't she a beauty! My daughter's only female peacock, the other 4 are males. She likes having her photo taken. Actually what she really was interested in was getting her morning treat. This is what you get first thing in the morning looking at you through the kitchen window.
