With great freedom comes great sacrifice. Thanks to all our Veterans and their families. Hats off to you!
On the topic of hats... got a fun new "old" hat during my adventures at the International Quilt Festival in Houston. So great to see my friends at Festival, like Judy Gula from Artistic Artifacts
in Alexandria, Virginia (basically my neighbor in the DC metro area!)
, bet you are wondering why this is about Flamingos. Ya know my favorite color is Turquoise (well anything in the blues to greens is my favorite color like Teal, Peacock, Aqua)... eh-hem, Flamingos, back on to Flamingos... This year the Quilters Quest
color palette had not just the colors of the sea, but also pinks and purples... So, my mind goes to the Caribbean waters and flamingos...
In my pattern "Flamingos Frolic in the Moonlight", these majestic creatures took on a whole lotta attitude.
After painting highlights there was a whole lotta texture... Which makes me wonder is the one on the right named "Lotta Fun"? and maybe the one the left is really a cowboy flamingo named Long-necked Louie...
Get this pattern during Quilt Quest and stop by my demos this Saturday November 15 (building birds using ABCs plus painting highlights on quilts). at Material Girls Quilt Boutique
; 6750 Crain Hwy, Suite B; La Plata, Maryland 20646 301.392.9575
I loved having Veterans at my demos today at Material Girls and creating impromptu poppies, after seeing the one I was wearing today.
Hats off to you and all other Veterans!
