Let’s take a walk down Peacock Lane with sewist, designer, and all-around awesome person Violet Craft.  (With a last name like that, she must be talented, right?)  We were introduced to Violet’s debut fabric line with Michael Miller Fabrics, Peacock Lane, at Spring Quilt Market in Salt Lake City.  Now that the line is released and widely available, we thought it was time to visit Peacock Lane and, naturally, we wanted to bring our readers along.

Peacock Lane is a robust, gorgeous line that features fun focus prints alongside smaller florals that are already becoming a basic staple in many modern quilters’ stashes.  As you can see, the colors represent a vibrant range from golds and greens to a rich rose that is perfectly complemented by touches of charcoal grey.  And the unexpected highlights of the prints themselves include a family of regal elephants and, of course, some proud peacocks.

Here’s a simple but effective quilt that Violet herself made as a gift for her friends’ adopted child, which also showcases the line nicely:
