Flamingo Floyd
May 2015

This quilt was inspired by Doris Brunnette’s (madebyabrunnette.com) Diamond Dust quilt which won 1st place at the Modern Quilt Guild’s QuiltCon 2015.

As someone who loves symmetry – and started quilting long before quilts with a modern aesthetic began gaining momentum in the early 2000’s – doing an asymmetrical quilt is quite a step outside of the proverbial box for me! While Doris’ design uses more solid color and negative space, I don’t have many “pieces of the past” fabrics that are solid colors. The white/black fabric was from Granny, while the flamingo fabric was a donation fabric.

I donated this quilt visa vie the Hands2Help Charity Quilt Challenge 2015. I chose to donate it to Nita who blogs at Because You Matter since her goals and focus are similar to mine: to make and give a quilt to a person who is having a hard time and would be comforted by a handmade quilt to snuggle up in, particularly children in foster care.

    • Thanks – I had a lot of fun making it. I am proud to have it go to Nita at Because you Matter, to be part of her outreach project. I think that it is exciting that it is going to be ‘gifted’ to a child so far away from me!

    • Thank you! There is just something about pink, white and black that I love! My ‘Lovely Flower Baskets in the Window’ was also pink, white and black, but in that case, the pink was a softer pink, and the embroidered flower baskets had a hint of teal that was a nice compliment to the overall composite.
