    PEACOCK PROUD--S&W, 4-Patch Posey, & Octogons

    From the first time I saw this wonderful fabric, all I could think about was S&W and variations. I wanted to keep the peacock intact and highlight it. I had a design worked up but for reasons I won't elaborate on, it didn't work out and this is what I came up with. I wanted to showcase the infinite beauty of this fabric. I used the 4-patch posey idea to make the windmills so that all the blades were centered on a point in the fabric, then used hexagons for the next round and finally the octogons for the final round of blocks. This is the top only and I can't wait for the longarm lady to do her magic. I have swavorski crystals to bling it up after the quilting is done. I hope you like it as I have liked all the other variations of this fabric that has been posted.

    I really love the wonderful colors in the fabric and it is etched with metallic gold. If you have any ideas for quilting designs, I would like to hear them. May you all have a wonderful, blessed Resurrection Sunday.

    I love the designs you created to showcase your center. Your quilt is stunning a jaw dropper for sure.

    Great job!! Love the colors and the design. I think I see 'feathers' maybe from a peacock 'eye' in each block..that is what they call the design in the feathers.

    Gorgeous. I purchased a peacock kit at Paducah last year that I haven't had the time to start on yet.

    Wow doesn't even begin to cover it. The colors are outstanding, and your interpretation of the movement and flow of the color and the peacock are great. Wonderful quilt.
