Odelia Odelia’s Peacocks and the Electric Fan is a 3-color, 3-fabric quilt in a horizontal setting. It measures 81 x 81 inches. I was having fun just playing around with unusual blocks and fun applique designs in Electric Quilt with this quilt.

This design uses the  Inklingo 9″ Storm at Sea Collection and the Inklingo 3″ Clamshell Edge Collection. I colored the blocks in EQ7 with fabrics from Toscana and Artisan Spirit Shimmer by Northcott.

There are 2 Odelias in my family tree. One I’m actually related to. She’s a first cousin 2x times removed in my paternal grandmother’s mother’s line—Odelia [George] Perry. The other Odelia is the sister-in-law of a third cousin 2x removed. Really. I was obviously busy following leads in someone’s tree on Ancestry.com and wasn’t paying any attention to just how the people I was adding to my tree were actually related to me.  It happens.  You lose track.

The same thing happens to me in Electric Quilt. All of a sudden I have 50 different colorways of the same quilt design because I’m thinking, “I wonder how it would look if I changed this color?” Somehow I ended up with the Electric Fan quilt block in my Sketchbook of Blocks. Being able to make the block with part of an Inklingo collection made me decide to keep it and use it in a quilt design. Then I was playing around with the Auto-Border feature—suddenly there were peacocks. [Who knew?] Well, I had to use them, too. I modified them a bit to make them simpler. You could probably even machine applique them. That’s how Odelia ended up with peacocks and electric fans.
