Fabric Salad

Green goodness for quilters and sewists

Which came first; the chicken or the peacock?

Peafowl are everywhere. (You know it’s only the boy peafowl that are called peacocks, right?) A quick search on Etsy for peacock leads you to everything from baby tutus to edible peacock feather cake decorations to peacock tights.

Even the Smithsonian Institution is calling fowl. The Freer Gallery in Washington D.C. opens it Peacock Room exhibit later this month.

American artist James Whistler created a vision in turquoise and gold. The Peacock Room exhibit opens September 20 at the Freer Gallery.

So, was Geninne Zlatkis following the trend or setting it when she designed her Alegria line featuring such aviary delights as this Peacock print?

Make a feathered friend with Peacock, part of Cloud 9 Fabric's Alegria line.

By the looks of Geninne’s blog, flora and fauna are enduring muses for this Mexican artist. Cloud 9 Fabric presents her eye-popping visuals in organic cotton.
