Years ago I painted some Deco Peacocks, inspired by Alfonse Mucha. I painted them on a denim vest to wear to the painting conventions I use to work at.

I got rid of some clothing but decided to cut these peacocks out and use them in a crazy quilt, since it was a lot of hours that went into creating them, (I have two Peacocks). So, I made this 49 by 49 crazy thing.

I was going to sew up all the scraps I had at the moment and then cut blocks out of the larger piece. Well, it was good while it lasted and away it went in the drawer with the other block that I used up lately.

Here it is the way it looks now. I haven't decided if I am going to cut it into blocks or add stuff to it. I put a couple crazy circles on it and would cut what's behind it out, if I do that.

Or I can cut out the peacock as a block.

I made a frame out of paper and framed a couple blocks to see what it would look like at 12 inches

Ok, what do you ladies like? the entire piece, the first pic, or parts of it cut into blocks, like where the paper frame is.

I kinda like the circle too. Make it different. Then I will still get an extra block out of it by cutting away the back of it.

Maybe add some decorative stitches like in the traditional crazy quilt blocks?
