"S" Peacock Challenge

Being a member of the Village Quilters, our February Guild Meeting was going to be exciting. The Guild had put out an AQS challenge to it's members. The theme was "Monograms".  How hard could that be? I hadn't entered anything so thought this sounded easy enough. Well, the thought was good and the one thing I learned was to start planning as soon as next years challenge is announced.  I knew the fabrics I wanted to use plus of course I had to use my AccuQuilt GO and whatever die I chose as I had a pretty good collection. How hard could it be to make an "S"?  Then where was I going to put the "J" and "P"?  After playing with it for several weeks I finally had my design ready and sewed it to the background fabric. Then I put it on my HQ Avante18. I thought I knew how I was going to quilt it until I started. If only I had one more day! Anyway, I entered my wall hanging and my quilting friends liked it especially the quilting.
 It was done. Now that I have it home again I will add more quilting and redo my binding as I was very unhappy how it went on. Then off to another project!
