 Peacock Vest WA-5 (Completed 2/07) 

This is my first offical wearable art piece.  Rachel Clark was my teacher in 2004. Her "design your own" vest class is a two-day technique filled adventuree.  It took me 3 years to gain the quilting skills needed to finish it. But, I was able to take it to the Feburary 2007 Wearable Art Association meeting when Rachel was the presenter. Joy!
    I used several quilt blocks: log cabin, rail fence, two patch, Roman road, and French braid (on the front).  The center peacock design is one of Leora's and one of the first I ever finished chain stitching.
