"Pretty in Pink"

This is my latest finish.  Another in my Flaminingo series of quilts. Similar motifs to "Placidos Flamingos, but almost a wholecloth...the birds are the only elements keeping it from being a wholecloth.  This little quilt is 47" x 49" and will be donated to the auction for education at MQS next week.  I also did step by step video instruction on how to make this little art quilt.  It is available  to premier members of MQR . Click on the photos to enlarge them.

The feathers are free hand cut from wool felt and were attached on the longarm during the quilting process.

And the back is a wholecloth!

I used two layers of batting; Quilters Dream Puff over warm & natural. And all the threads are by superior..all King Tut except for So Fine in the "sky" background fill.

If you're going to MQS you can see this quilt up close and personal and bid on it with the proceeds going to a great cause.
