Default Jack's Peacock

At Christmas, my SIL showed me a video of her 3yo grandson Jack squealing with delight viewing a peacock. I thought maybe I could make him a peacock quilt. While searching for a simple idea for it, I came across some royalty-free clip art that really pleased me but too complicated for his quilt. Our quilt guild challenge happened to be flora or fauna... so this fit. I made the freezer paper pattern and did the peacock in invisible raw edge applique. The quilting is FMQ and ruler work. This is the biggest project I've ever attempted. I named it Jack's Peacock.

I think you have done amazingly well! I love the bright colors overall perfection. Explain please, what is 'invisible raw edge applique'? My dad used to have all kind of animals including peacocks!
