Oh well, it makes for a nice pattern regardless of what they call it, and yes, it does look kind of like a peacock tail.

I'm thinking of entering this in a local craft competition here in my hometown. But my husband says I'm being mean and unfair to the little old ladies--you know, the ones who only know how to make granny square afghans and toilet roll covers. I say, "Bahhhh!" to that!

Breathtakingly beautiful! Did you enter the competition?

GG: Yes, I got first place, but once again (like the previous year), I didn't get there in time to see if that meant anything--meaning I quite possibly could have been the only person with an entry in that category (small town fairs, what can I say?).

Thank you for your kind comments and for resurrecting this project to make it.
