100 Details In 100 Days - Day 40


Motif Peacock Feather

I can't believe we're up to day 40 already! I've enjoyed this project so much!

Today's detail is sort of a repeat. I've shared this pattern before but since we're in "peacock mode" and for those of you who are new to following my blog, I thought I'd make it today's motif.

I use this feather on every peacock themed quilt I do. Sometimes it has to be adjusted a little bit to fit the space and you can certainly use whatever colors you want to for this.

I trace the design onto tissue paper and then pin it to my quilt and stitch it use 2 strands of DMC floss. I do the fill in satin stitching after I tear the tissue paper away. Yes, that part can be tedious and time consuming as well as a bit frustrating but it works well and the results are worth it.

thank you Pamela! I think I may be able to use this one as a starting point, a beginner's item I think you'd say! :)
