Block for Purple Color Study RR





Hello everyone, I have just finished my block for the color study rr that is just starting. The color of this rr is purple, one of my favorite colors.


I have been working on a set of blocks for our home that we are buying and they are specific to what will be the front parlor in the house. It will be called the "peacock room", because that is the rooms theme. Any and everything to do with peacocks will be in this room. I know it will be my favorite room outside of my sewing studio.


Anyhow, I am really excited about this rr. The block is larger than the guidelines, but I have let the ladies know that they can do what they feel is acceptable under the guidelines and I will finish the rest when it comes back home to me.


I centered a glorious purple "peacock" in the center patch of the block. It will be hard waiting to see the finished product of this swap at the end of the rr which will end in August. Hmmmmmm............ that is going to be a long wait for me. But, in the meantime I will be working on each ladies block in my group, which is called the groovy grapes!


Also, I will be working on the other five that will be a part of this project. As I get them put together I will share them here for all to see.


Now to post pics of this block:

Wendy,
Your block looks beautiful. I love peacocks also and am thinking about what I can do for your block.
Watching the mailbox!

Wendy, the blocks are lovely. The fuzzy thread is such a great idea for the tail. I'm sure these will be the crowning touch to your parlor!
