Peacock Yellow Brick Road

I call this one the Peacock YBR because the colors make me think of a peacocks beautiful feathers.

This is a church quilt too, I like to quilt them in pairs, as then I can get 2 quilts on one piece of wide backing.

It got freehand filigree curls, reminds me of the curls on the old screen door at Grandma's house :)  King Tut variegated thread on top.

Yellow Brick Road

Here's a yellow brick road for the church.

I had fun quilting this.  I started with the square design, and when I got bored with that, I created a wavy-line diamond medallion in the center of the quilt, and a larger diamond, and filled the inside of the larger diamond with a curvy design to offset the straight lines of the first design.
