Purple, purple, purple!!!

Had the pleasure of working on Wendy's block in the CQ4N color study rr. Wendy had worked a lovely peacock on her block, so I decided to stay with that theme and I chose to do a peacock eye feather. I used a design from Cindy Gorder's book Beaded Crazy Quilting ( a great book of ideas). The eye and spine are worked in beads. The barbs are worked in a couched varigated thread .

I'm sorry to know that only 2 more blocks remain in this swap, but there will be another color and more fun for all!
