I got this little 12" x 12" quilt from Val Pellens. It was the 7th one in the series for Audrey Prothero.
This quilt is a beautifully painted and quilted peacock with a few beads attached. I'm guessing that the theme could be all about feathers, since peacocks are known for the beautiful feathers. Or it could be about eyes since they are prominent on this piece. Or it could represent a bird theme. Oh my gosh. I know that Audrey likes turquoise, so perhaps it just about the color. I know that she has a tremendous sense of humor and loves to laugh. Her sunny disposition and giggle always make me feel good. I had to put on my thinking cap for this one.
In the end, I decided that it HAD to be turquoise, and because I like (and collect) feathers, I decided to just give her a feathered hat. And the humor.....well, see what you think.
Here is the one that was passed along to me:
And here is the one that I made:
I hope she likes it.
