I do enjoy making quilts from stained glass windows. This lovely conservatory picture of a peacock drinking from a fountain offered so many fabric choices. The peacock has a lovley trapunto tail and body making him stand out from the other elements. His tail has japanese seed beads sewn on to emphasis the splendor of the tail. All fabric is 100% cotton, the trapunto was a polyester batting and the full batting is cotton. The back of the quilt, a solid black, repeats the picture through the quilting in coloured threads, mostly polyester thread with a high shine.

Thank you both! It's not a panel but that's high praise. It took a lot of time but i enjoyed every second of it from drawing the picture to choosing the fabrics.
