"For the chenille, I used five layers of multicolored, tie-dyed rayon batiks that I got on one of my cruises to the Caribbean. I quilted the layers, on the true bias, to a quilt sandwich at 1/2" intervals and then slashed the top five layers between the stitching. When they frayed up in the wash, the multicolored batiks produced a soft, multicolored, iridescent "fake fur" that reminds me of a peacock feather."
