I finally got March's challenge finished. The fabrics used in this piece is cottons, silk diponi,brocade(I believe that is what it is).
Threads used were Rajmahal silk, Jewel Effects E334, Dmc Floss, Dmc Rayon Perle 5, Sassa Lynne Perle Fine,Anchor Marlin,KNK Silk,TYI Silk.
I am really pleased with this block. The peacock motif, and all the seam treatments came out of Carole Samples Treasury of Crazy Quilt Stitches. This book is definately a treasure to have in your library. The peacock was done using the split stitch for the body, beak and the black,white,and aqua green of the feathers, and then stem stitch for the rest of the feathers.I am making all my blocks on point, can't wait to have enough to make a quilt top with.
