Peacock Block for Susan

Last week I finished up my portion of Susan's block for our Peacock Round Robin on Crazy Quilting International. I was the final person to work on the block, so the picture shows the completed block, which is now on its way back to Susan.
My contributions were the peacock in the upper left corner, several seams, and this feather motif which mimicked the printed fabric beneath. I used a vintage millinery "leaf" as the eye. Then, with clear thread, I stitched the rest of the feather using furry yarn (don't remember what it's called!). What do you think???
I hope Susan likes her block! I think it turned out wonderfully.

That feather really looks like a feather! What a great block to receive. I"ve never participated in a round robin but I sure wish I was the Susan to receive this one. Thanks for sharing.
