I love looking at peacocks so I really enjoyed making this block. The ones I made, using civil war fabrics, aren't quite as brightly hued as a real peacock but I'm pleased with how they turned out. I embroidered the feet and was much happier doing them this way rather than appliqueing them out of fabric. I'm discovering that the details in a block are what captivate my attention and excite me. This block was one that got me pretty excited because there were lots of details to play around with........couldn't wait to see what the little guys would look like when they were finished. I just love seeing how a block evolves itself (anyway it seems like it takes on a life of it's own and creates itself the way it wants to be sometimes, if you know what I mean. I don't really know how to explain it but I just love that part.)
Next I think I'll try making the peahen, block #14.
