WIP-What sound does a Peacock make?/I'm the Queen!!

We made it! It's mid week, hump day, two days closer to the weekend and my Friday! Yipee! I'm back with the Garden Peacock, as she is still a WIP. I did get the top finished this week, whew! I am so happy with how she turned out!
My little Will, with his mixed matched jammas was front and center to help me get a pic. While his brother wanted to make sure I couldn't see him through the fabric. This Garden Peacock is on her way to becoming a full fledged quilt one day! I'm linking her up with Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday.

I'm also co-Queen this month with Paula in the Thread Divas Hive. Since everyone will be making two blocks this month I decided to go simple. I chose the Churn Dash block. This little block is so versatile. For my blocks I asked for a true white background with bright, boy suited colors for the churn dash portion. I used a great little tutorial from Sarah over at Sew Me

Here are my sample blocks:

Connie from my hive is super fast, I received her block already, here it is:
I just love the whales! Its perfect for a little boy! Thank you Connie!

My Co-Queen Paula requested flying geese with centers that coordinated with the 2wenty thr3e Collection by Eric and Julie Comstock of Cosmo Cricket for Moda.

Love this fabric! For the background she wanted either gray or low volume grays with a scrappy feel. Her Sister Wendy worked up a great tutorial for the big geese, you can find it here.

I had a charm pack of the 2wenty thr3e fabric but alas my little squares were not going to be big enough for the center part of the geese. So I raided my stash and found coordinating colors and some low volume greys. Here's what I came up with:
I just love how this block turned out. I don't want to give this one away! It will be headed out this week. I saved the clippings from my geese to make some HST's that I'll use in a future project!

So how is your week going? Can't wait to see!!
