Peacock Feathers

The Story

What can I say? I have always loved peacock feathers. It was not a matter of if but when they were going to be digitized and embroidered.

Then I saw it. The most beautiful embroidery thread you can imagine. Greenish blue with a hint of gold, or was it bluish green? A subtle metallic thread twisted with black. There was no way I could put off digitizing these feathers any longer. Everything else had to wait. This thread, and another one just as beautiful - pale peach twisted with black - were begging to be embroidered.

(The threads are Madeira Metallic 490 and 426, if you want to start looking for them.)

What a joy it was to do these feathers! I have embroidered them on a table runner, an evening length taffeta skirt, and (as seen below) on a shorter, earthy, brick colored skirt...

..The quilt below was my first attempt at embroidering on a finished pieced top, as opposed to embroidering blocks and then doing the piecing. I was quite happy with how it turned out, but you be the judge.
