    Darlene Zimmerman
     

    Yin and Yang

    Yin and Yang by Darlene Zimmerman is inspired by Darlene's love for wearing the colour, Pink Flamingo. Using a technique called a "Maltese Cross" to highlight the positive and negative colours on the quilt.


    Rebecca Bryan
     

    Nostalgia

    Nostalgia by Rebecca Bryan is a quilt inspired by more retro designs. Unapologetically exploding with colour, this design emphasises the vast range of colours that Pink Flamingo can merge with.


    Valori Wells
     

    Stars Over Pink Flamingo

    Stars Over Pink Flamingo by Valori Wells comes from her love for warm neutral colour palettes along with a sprinkle of gold. For an added touch, she quilted flamingo wadding into the design to further blend the two themes.


    Heather Jones
     

    Migratory

    Migratory by Heather Jones was created because she believes it is a gorgeous colour, which is strong, but not overpowering. A paler pink and a white was used in the creation of this quilt showing that Pink Flamingo works well with different hues.


    Elizabeth Hartman
     

    Flock Of Feathers

    Flock Of Feathers by Elizabeth Hartman is inspired by the vibrancy and joy that an image of a flamingo depicts. The block backgrounds are, for the most part, white and pink. However, there is also black to emphasise the accents on their feathers and blue to demonstrate their natural habitat.
