Flamingo Love

I skipped 2 motorcycle rides this weekend in order to make this bird.   Totally worth it.  I finished the FMQ late Sunday afternoon.  The fabric is actually a creamy-beige batik.  There is a fire to our East so my world is an odd shade of orange today.  
I would be done except I decided that it would really benefit from the texture of a hand-quilted background.  This will really stand out after it's washed as it is a cotton batting which will crinkle beautifully as it shrinks.  
And from the back.  (Medium grey fabric.)

Wow, what an accomplishment. I love flamingos but I'd do mine in fabric.
