Susan’s block number 13 – Peacock, just the beginning

startJust starting out- I love the bird in this block – Chose some cheddar fabric for her which I bought recently at The Patchwork Company in Windham. I love that store- it’s so worth the hour trip.

Lots of leaves – I am using just three or four different fabrcis. Don’t want too much contrast. The beak is a little snippet of ultrasuade i had left from an old chart. That chart really comes in handy for tiny pieces.

I’m still using my paper foundations for all my shapes. Somehow I just can’t get the iron onto freezer paper thing. It just doesn’t work for me. It seemed to work so well at the Kim Diehl workshop. Hmmm…

Can’t seem to use glue either and back to pinning everything. I guess that saying about not being able to teach an old dog new tricks is so correct.

  1. Hey. Love the bird. Doesn’t look like cheddar in pic. I love the pressing on freezerpaper and gluing technique but my stitches are visable. Not sure what is wrong.

  2. I love this quilt and just purchased the pattern from Corliss ! I’m a new quilter who is completely overly enthusiastic and over ambitious!
