Doing the {Pink} Flamingo

Pink Flamingo, the Kona Color of the Year, was totally the inspiration for the first giving quilt of 2017. Circa15 fabric studio generously gifted the guild with a supply of the peachy-pink fabric, and swatches measuring 9″ x 11″ were given to all members interested in participating. They were asked to create 12 1/2″ improv blocks using the Pink Flamingo plus gray and/or white solids or prints that read as solids. And boy, did they deliver!

Arranging the blocks roughly from light to dark, Debbie pieced them into a top. Backing, also donated by Circa15, was Rhoda Ruth Wide Back by Elizabeth Hartman for Robert Kaufman in Smoke.

And Pam quilted it with a wonderfully fun design that enhanced all that improv so nicely.

Matt used more Pink Flamingo to bind it, and the quilt finished at 72″ x 72.”

Eventually we’ll make a decision where to donate this one, but first it’s going to be entered in a couple of shows. We’ll keep you posted on that!

Meanwhile, thanks to everyone who had a hand in making this quilt! We were so impressed with everyone’s improv, and thrilled that some of our members were trying it for the first time!
