Before Florence flies South (and trust me, she will as we cannot make anymore kits with these fabrics) I wanted to do a little encore wrap up! Plus, I wanted to offer you another chance to engage with us and win something! You do like to win, right? Granted we can't give you all a car but what we can give you is the gift of sewing yet another project!
However, let's focus on Florence for a minute. Florence is...a Flamingo.
I love how they choose their mate. LOL.
I don't think Florence would have a problem because she is gorge. BTW, we only have two kits left seeew click here if you want it! Florence has like...nine ensembles of bright, cheerful colors! Just in case someone is out there thinking, "Flamingos are supposed to be pink"....don't worry, we've got it covered!
This quilt isn't literal. The beauty of creating is that a flamingo can be any color you want it to be! I'm sure there are plenty of pinks out there that all nine Flamingos could be pink if that's your desire! I will add that I love how Melissa Hoffman (@fiddlestitches) chose a simple quilting design for this quilt. We didn't want to distract from the flamingos!
Complete tangent but I just realized why I love the name Florence.
It's everybody's favorite TV mom, Carol Brady (aka...Florence Henderson!) Hard to believe she passed in November, but we will always have her in those Brady Bunch re-runs!
Seeew let's talk about those fabrics for a minute. While the "Mothership" used a variety of manufacturers and designers, I can tell you that some of these prints are from the Lewis & Irene Tropicana collection. I also see prints from Me & My Sister Designs, SummerFest by April Rosenthal, Essential Dots from Moda, Bumble Berries by the Jungs for Moda...oh and I see a little bit of Pam Kitty!
My favorite Flamingos of course are the green and aqua!
Seeew with all of these bright, happy colors getting me inspired I figured today we would offer you a chance to win this all new Kimberbell Basics Charm Pack! All you have to do is leave a comment below before 11:59pm Tuesday, February 21 for a chance to win!
Now before I go, I took this photo above at Disney's Animal Kingdom with my first iPhone in 2014. My favorite part of that park is the lush entry which is known as the Oasis. They of course, have Flamingos! Since the park opened in 1998 (I'm trying to find my footage from the Today show because I was there!) it had always been a daytime park. Meaning...it closed between 5pm-7pm depending on the season. For the first time in its nearly 20 years they will offer nighttime entertainment with the all-new Rivers of Light. Take a peak! BTW...Michael Curry's design studio is located in Scappoose, Oregon! Mind...blown! Who knew?
For now you'll have to excuse me as we have a new office to move into before we get into our new store space!
