Moira - I remembered!

Lots of sewing of little squares and strip-piecing this week as I finished off the flamingo quilt top (well except for the border that is).    

The top is 48" by 60" as it is right now.  Tweaking an idea from Susan, I think i'm going to do a border of black followed by binding it in pink.  I plan on cross-hatching the background, and am still thinking about how to quilt the bird.

There were 20-25 different WOW's in the bottom half of the background alone, and probably another dozen in the top half.  8 or more medium pinks and about that many in the medium pinks.   The black was all Kona and the grey was a scrap from my scrap stash.

Am planning to sell this one once I have it quilted and bound.

What a lovely flamingo Moira. Glad you have so many fabrics if this is what you come up with for them, lol.

Lol, this came from only the small scraps in my scrap stash Cyra. I didn't even cut into the larger ones.........
