Florida Fabrics for Fun!

The tea pot fabric I couldn't resist is shown here with the fabrics selected to make a rose, as well as the pattern I found later! I'm certain that I need to add a couple fabrics to the rose choices, and probably delete one or two, also. That mauve one is really screaming at me in this photo . . . saying, "Get me out of here!" Not sure what color I will use for a background. Perhaps a very pale sage, if I can find one.


Here are my shop hop fabrics selected to accompany the block kits acquired from each shop along our path. The theme fabric for Flamingo Trot, of course, was the flamingo fabric in the center. I don't know if I will use all of these in the quilt, but at least I have a number of candidates! Don't really have any setting in mind. Thought I would decide after I make the blocks! Since I just love applique, I may have to make a center medallion, and use the blocks to border it. I've got a couple interesting flamino applique candidates in my library. I'll just let my imagination stew on this subject for a while. I'm sure something will come to me!

Needless to say, I bought more than I could EASILY carry with me on the plane. Fortunately, Melanie had an extra suitcase that she needed to send back to Indiana. Being the generally good-hearted soul I am, I volunteered to put my fabric choices in it, and check it through. Laura helped me, too. And, we included the purchases we made to bring back for the other gals in our group who weren't able to make the trip. Amazingly enough, we filled the extra suitcase up, but didn't go over the weight limit . . . that was what I was afraid would happen!
