Peacock Closeups

Here are the closeups of the four corners of the Peacock Wall Hanging - hopefully there will be enough quality for people to get a look at them. Just as a reminder, the whole thing is made up of three round robin blocks and twelve DYB (Doing Your Block) blocks, plus a special from Belinda and fillers from me.

There is a bit of overlap on the pictures, but you should be able to get the idea.

You can see who did which block on the Flickr Set - this is far from being all my work, although the piecing is all mine.

The Wall Hanging is now totally embellished - I just need to find the RR books etc and work out what date it started, so I can do a signature. Then I will bind it. Might try the French Facing technique Allison was so kind as to post. Thanks Allison. (Edit note - my apologies to Allison, and my appreciation to Arlee for pointing out I had attributed this to the wrong A class lady)

That quilt is lovely and intense. I love the blue shades that you've chosen to mix together like that.

Curiosity question. In looking at the bottom of the bottom right, I can see a picture of two swan-type birds facing each other, but even on the larger picture I can't tell if that is something you stitched in or a part of the fabric. If you did stitch it, would it be possible to have an even closer up picture (at your leisure)? I'm curious to see the stitch pattern.
