 About the quilt design

Finding a new inspiration for a quilt is a tradition as old as quilting itself. There are plenty of very traditional patterns, but this year that’s not what we have. Seeing a picture of a small quilt featuring a beautiful blue parrot produced the notion of a different bird that brings to mind tropical gardens and long trains of beautiful feathers – a peacock! Producing a reasonable likeness of your current fixation out of fabric is always the challenge of an non-traditional quilt. Using fabric to give the peacock an abstract look that allows you to accept it as recognizable as well as giving the feel of the bird in his own “home” is the am, and we feel this happened here.
