Peacocks Garden is the first 10 part Block of the Month project designed by Monica Poole of Moonshine Designs.
About Peacock’s Garden.
Quilt size is 72” square
The techniques used in this quilt are fusible appliqué, bias work, piecing and
simple foundation piecing that is used in block 8. The fusible appliqué has
been stitched with a combination of blanket and satin stitch by machine. The
appliqué can be blanket stitched by hand and the requirements are also
sufficient for needle turn appliqué.
Peacock’s Garden has the option of quilt as you go or making the quilt top only
and having it professionally quilted.
