Buttons for my peacock!

This Fool's Gold crazy quilting round robin is a special personal challenge and every block has been an adventure in searching for new ways to explore with inexpensive gold materials..

 This block is finished and I've used
7 different gold braids
2 kinds of gold cording
At least a dozen different kinds of gold  glass and metal beads
5 different kinds of gold threads
various gold buttons4 kinds of pearl beads
sequins and crystals

I've posted about the progress of this peacock on my blog: http://olderrose.blogspot.com/
