In my last post I mentioned buying wonderful fabric at the Quilter’s Convention held this week in Rochester, MN. I’m like a kid at Christmas with new fabric and have already started (and almost completed) a pillow from the peacock fabric. It has a pattern of 6 so you’ll be seeing more of the brilliant blue bird in the future, never fear. I have inklings of how I want to use each piece of fabric, but I’m always happy for you to share your opinions as well.
|This is the fat quarter I purchased from the Africa booth; I thought coasters from this would be fun.What do you think?|
|Birds are always popular, especially cardinals..you'll see them in time for Christmas in one form or another!|
|Too pretty to pass up...pillow for sure then what?|
|I plan to bead the edges only, not the "paintings. Won't these make cool pillows?|
|The Ballerina has already been reserved!|
|Here you can see how I've already made one peacock into a pillow. I found some incredible beads for the tail feathers...stay tuned.|
