"Peacock" by Mary

Why we should enter contests!

Sometimes I get discouraged with my quilting as most of end up in other people's posession or in the cupboard out of sight.
I had agonized for weeks over using material my husband had chosen (red and orange batiks) as they are not my colors of choice. As a lark last weekend I entered my latest quilt (my husband chose this material also) into our local fall fair and to my surprise I won third prize! Now I'm all fired up again and ready to tackle my next exciting project!

Mary, your "peacock" quilt is great! Kudos on your win!  Maybe this one will hang out at your house for inspiration :-)

I love your quilt.  I also worry about where quilts I make for people end up.  Another thing I also do is take my husband or my son with me to help out fabrics if I am not sure of what to get.

Confrats on the ribbon.

Great job Mary!  It's very unique (and kudos to your husband for having an interest in what you're doing).  We all need a little push now and then - I'm glad you found your own motivation.

mary your peacock quilt is beautiful and i think it's great that your husband is involved i plan to show this to my husband who is quite supportive but would not consider getting involved in selecting any colors .....he says he will stick to building cabinets and repairing my machines

I am sure this was a long running project.  I think you should have had the Blue Ribbon.  Love it.!
