One down, one to go

Placidos Flamingos.  Done, except for binding and sleeve.  This was such fun!  The background is one of my own hand painted fabrics.  The palm tree is dyed batting. And the flamingo feathers are wool that I needle felted.
I used Quilters dream "Puff" batting as the main batting.  So Fine and King Tut threads.


The sun has extra loft from faux trapunto using another piece of "Puff" batting.




And the  back,  you might see some hanging threads...I haven't trimmed them yet.





And the next one is loaded and started....not a minute to lose! They have to be turned in for judging Sunday!
So I'm working late into the night lately, and it's going to continue probably right up to Saturday night!

  17. I get completely lost in your quilting. Everywhere I look I find a new treasure. The leaf and water fills, the bubbles rising from the fish, the hummingbird. Wow. And those flamingos, I just have to smile when I see those fluffed up guys. Good luck at the show, Deb. This is great stuff.

    I have thoroughly enjoyed your videos on MQR but would love to have them all on a DVD. Would this be something you would consider?
