Okay - bad take on the Star Trek line, but I'm not having much luck with a more creative title. Just ignore it and take a look at this quilt:
Here is a closer look at the peacock blocks:
There's a story here, of course. Almost three years ago, Rivkah posted about a vintage block she had found and told how she really wanted to make a quilt. But, she figured she would never get it done by herself and she asked if anyone would be willing to make a block or two. I thought she had a good idea there, and besides, I wanted the pattern for that block!
Rivkah sent me some fabric and the pattern and I dutifully created my block and sent it off. But I could not get that block out of my mind. Especially when the Hoffman Challenge fabric for that year was full of peacocks! I even purchased an extra yard - just in case, you know?
Last month I decided it was time to stop thinking and do! I fussy-cut the tail pieces from the peacock tails on the fabric.
And I chose a block for the alternate squares. Birds-in-the-Air. How appropriate is that? Teehee!
And there was just enough of the Hoffman fabric left for a decent border.
And I think I know just how it should be quilted, too. Isn't this a fun quilt?
