The Start of Peacock

I decided to try appliqueing a circular medallion I designed.  I traced out all the pieces and had a blast picking out the fabrics.  You can see below that I laid my light fabric on my table and you can see the thick black lines right through without any trouble.

Instead of my usual layering I decided to put all the pieces for this quilt on at once since some pieces when over and under others.  

I also decided to do a tiny single (instead of my usual double) using Aurifil 50 weight thread.  It worked wonderfully as always and since it was single blanket stitch I was able to get all the stitching done in an evening!

Can you guess from the picture above why my son insisted this quilt is called Peacock?  We had quite a chuckle over it.

I hope you get to quilt today!
