Flamingo Quilt/ posted in: Quilting
We have a finish! I know, I know, I can’t believe it either.
I’m a fan of Elizabeth Hartmann’s animal patterns. I’ve made the hedgehog and the fox and the whale. I really liked the flamingo pattern too. About a month ago it occurred to me that the neighbors across the street where having a baby. They have two flamingo statues in their yard. They are apparently really into 1950s decor, according to my husband who has talked to them. They painted their front door a bright blue. I realized this was a perfect excuse to make the flamingo quilt.
I made the small size with just 2 flamingos.
One had to be pink to be traditional (or natural). I made the other one blue because they were having a boy.
I quilted it with just straight (ish) lines in a varigated pink and blue.
I was actually sad to see this one go. I liked it.
I made the husband deliver it. I’ve never even seen these people but he’s had conversations with them. Now I think I’m considered the Boo Radley of the neighborhood who only comes out to go to work and spends the rest of the time making quilts in the basement.
