Fabulous Freebies Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Fabulous Freebies Blog Hop!  A few weeks ago I made a Christmas Flamingo that a lot of people really enjoyed.  We decided her name is Noelle.  And here she is in all her glory.



Here are a few pictures to show you the detail work I did on my flamingo.

I stitched around the outsides of all the pieces like this:



Here I added the string for the Christmas lights.



Here's a closeup of her head.



To get the pattern drawing click here.  Please be sure to share your finished creations with me!  I can't wait to see a flock of flamingos.

Please come join my Facebook Group - Machine Applique Adventures!  I post links to all my blog posts, inspiration, and all things quilty.  And be sure to stop back to my blog for new posts on Mondays (inspiration), Wednesdays and Saturdays (projects), and Fridays (machine quilting).

I hope you get to quilt today!
Suzy

  8. Very cute! Since we usually have snow for Christmas, I never thought of flamingos as Christmasy until last year when I went to a nearby Zoolights event and to my surprise there was a fabulous flock of flamingos basking in a heated pool enclosure decked out with Christmas lights. Noelle would be the belle of this Flamingo Flamboyance with that fabulous hat. Thanks for sharing in the blog hop ... :) Pat
