Crazy Patchwork Peacock completed.
Well here it is, finally finished with backing and binding - thanks to a dear friend who is much better than me at those finishing touches! She had some orange scraps which looked much better than the fabric I was going to use. You can click on the image for a close up view.
I had such fun doing this. People kept giving me stuff to put on it. There are two ear-rings found at op shops: one on the top left hand corner, attached to the peacock feather fabric, and the other on the purple patch near the top. A friend gave me the tiny peacock charm in the bottom left hand corner, which is attached to a bed of ribbony stuff that someone else gave me because the colours reminded her of my block. The turquoise tatting under the buttons was given to me by a member of our Guild, and the buttons and other bling have been collected along the way.
One day I'll do another one of these blocks, as I have some more Peacock fabric in a different pattern and colourway. I still have lots of bling left over that I can use!
