    Meet "Doc", my peacock quilt

    this is "Doc". He's named after my grandpa who was a doctor and had peacocks on his farm. I made Doc himself many years ago in a class, learning to use metallic threads in the bobbin. He was done on a black fat quarter.

    Timeless Treasures is now making a line of fabric called Plume, so I used that to make the background. I decided to cut away the background of Doc and will applique him on. I'm quilting each row of fabric with a different quilting pattern. The first row has my tissue paper pinned to it right now for a stipple design.

    Beautiful, great job! Isn't it hard to remove the tissue paper after you are done stippling?

    Ooh, that's really nice!
    People who start projects and never finish them are cooler
    than people who never start projects at all.

    Wow, I love peacocks and have been on a major hunt for just the right fabrics. Love the peacock you made in class. Do you know if there is a pattern available? Thanks.
