Florence Flamingo and her friends...
My mom made this quilt for my sister and brother in-law, for their wedding quilt. They have a slight obsession with Flamingo’s!!!
My mom and aunt own a fabric store online, https://www.etsy.com/shop/sistersandquilters or https://www.sistersandquilters.com/ they have a great selection of a wide variety of fabrics, as you can see. This pattern is available in their shop, it’s called Florence Flamingo and is by Elizabeth Hartman. I love it!! The ombré look to each flamingo is so much fun.
I gave my sister and brother in-law quilte a few designs to choose from, for the quilting...they chose my “The Climb”©️ design, which is only available at: https://www.quiltingit.com/shop/the-climb
I quilted this design at 2.5” height. That seems small, but it’s the most perfect size. Especially with all the negative space in the design. I love it with these fabrics and the flamingos.
So...let me introduce you to Florence Flamingos friends, yes...we named them. Haha! Not only do we want to remember their names, but I want to show you a close up on all the fun fabrics they picked for this quilt... note...these names are random and were chosen over a facetime call with my other sister and brother in-law...you know, as a gift or added personal touch to this quilt. Haha!
In all seriousness as you scroll through these pictures, notice the trianglular theme in the fabrics, which makes the quilting very fitting.
This is Guyus...
This is Francene, isn’t she lovely!
Crabby, fitting for sure.
Gaquille, perfect spelling by my bro in-law...
Dalas, aka Salad (they are reversible I learned)
Aquafina...she’s quite possibly my favorite!
Steven (inside joke between the bro in-laws...from some funny video)
...have you ever had fun naming your animal quilts???
I used my favorite Winline 8020 cotton poly blend batting, and 30 tex poly wrapped poly Perma Core A&E thread. I bound it in the pink, because it’s just like the pretty pink flamingo legs, plus that pop of color is fun!!
This was the last quilt I quilted before Christmas!!! Love how it turned out.
