Black and White Movie-star Flamingos
Flo Ziegfeld and Greta Garbo-Mingo ( I do NOT want to be alone) have joined the flock.
(BTW my design wall is white not pink as it appears here)
As always the pattern is from Shirley Liby's sew precise.
How do I choose fabrics?
Thanks for asking, heh heh
I likes what I likes.
And they should have movement and interest and contrast and be available in a scrap bin.
And I like to place the scrap just so.
I have a flamingo fabric collection, that's right, I know you're shocked. I'll wait while you recover.
Since there is water and sky in each little block, and since each little block was done at my whim so they are all different sizes, this will not be simple.
Maybe I'll go around each one with the same fabric to unify them. Maybe there will be a big flamingo in the center. I don't know, I just make the blocks with little thought to the future.
It's like, when a fabric store clerk asks what I am going to do with a fabric while she cuts it.
Well, I hunted and gathered it, I'm going to take it home and clean (wash dry and fold) it, and it's going to join the others.
I'm adopting it.
Black and White dishes to follow, and that teapot, gonna be so cute!
