Introducing Peacock Love

I would like to show you my latest quilt, and I call it Peacock Love. 
 It is having a proper introduction today over on the Moda Bake Shop!!

I designed this quilt for my daughter that raises pea fowl on her farm.  
I used the fabric line Kissing Booth by Basic Grey for Moda.  
What a beautiful line!  
The cream background actually has hints of pink in it. 
 It is such a beautiful fabric to work with. 
I just might have to buy some more to make some more quilts!

My friend Liz did the overall heart quilting and I filled in with loops around the "tail feathers".  
I also quilted the large heart and the bird and outlined the heart feathers and the bird too.  

I embroidered the legs, the crown and the eye using black floss.  
The binding was made from the floral in the Kissing Booth line.  
It is a very pretty fabric too.

I did have some kitty help with the binding.  
Those quilt inspectors are a tough crowd!

I have a companion piece rattling around in my head, 
but maybe I will save him for next Valentine's Day.  

What do you think?

I can't wait to give this to my peacock loving daughter in the near future, 
but I wanted to keep it just a bit longer to share it with all of you. 
 If you would like the instructions on how to make one for yourself, 
please go over to the Moda Bake Shop.  
The tutorial is posted there. 

 Also if you are interested in making one with the same fabrics my friend Cori, 
at Crazy Quilt Girl has everything you need to do so.  
Seriously, even if you don't you so need to pick up some of that Creme Brulee grunge 
(the background fabric). 
 It's gorgeous!

So if you have a minute, please stop over at the Moda Bake Shop and leave me a comment. 
 I would LOVE to know what you think of my latest creation!

Thanks for stopping by and sharing in my excitement!!

Oh and it was a BIG hit with the new owner too!

I just love that happy face!!

You had mentioned a quilt along with Kissing Booth so I'm assuming it was this pattern. So glad you passed on the quilt along and went with a Bake Shop pattern. This deserves the recognition that MBS can give it. Congratulations!
