Catching up with some yellow flamingos

Catching up on the RSC 2015 with these two silly yellow flamingos.
Click on images to see the cool fabrics...
The one on the left is about 4" by 5", the one on the right about 7" by 4" and both made totally from the scrap bin from stuff like this....
lots of leftover water fabrics from a couple ocean quilts. If it makes me giggle, it comes home with me!
And these teensy scraps of fish staring at me screamed out to peek around flamingo legs.

  8. Each time you show another set of flamingoes I say, "This is the cutest!" (So fickle.) I cannot wait to see them all in one quilt. Adorably clever.

  9. I agree with Kaja above....your stash must be impressive. Love those little fish peeking around the legs. I bet you can sew these flamingoes without the pattern pieces by now.

  19. Those spotted flamingos are fun, but those spots must be scaring the fish, who might just attack. Be careful, birdies. You are too cute to perish.
