Song Bird- "White Peacocks"

The quilt was made for an online Song Bird challenge for the group, Art Quilts From Around The World. 

 I was so impressed when I saw several stunning, unusual white peacocks in person. I have made several peacock quilts with blues and blue greens. Creating a white peacock was new to me. I added beads and sequins to its feathers and used tone on tone cotton and satin fabrics.

International Miniature Quilt Exchange

The beautiful quilt on the top was made by Jean Ameduri of St. Louis, Missouri. I am the lucky owner in a quilt exchange.
I created A Journey to India over the past year and included hand embroidery, buttons, beads, sequins, shisha mirrors, and trims.

I met Jean at the International Quilt Festival in Houston last November while admiring The Quilt Show special exhibit of The International Miniature Quilt Exchange. Jean has exchanged over 300 quilts!
