Inspiration Tuesday

Plenty of inspiration in peacock feathers. Have you ever made anything inspired by them?

I used a peacock feather as inspiration on one of my 2002 Journal quilts, QuiltPage 7 (May), on this page: http://www.mariaelkins.com/JournalQuiltPages.asp. I used a double needle to quilt the feather tendrils. As I reached about the halfway point, I began to turn the quilt so that the lines got closer together until they became one line.

That's really special Maria, I remember the other feather journals, but I had forgotten about that one. It isn't always easy to work out how to get the tendrils, but the twin needle was just the right effect.

Take care,
