flamingo-new Do you ever have one of those days when you look in the mirror and decide it's time for a little change?

As a pattern designer, we get to make those decisions when it's time to reprint a pattern. This Flamingo Frolics pattern is not new. However, it still remains popular and when I began to run out of the pattern, I had to make a few decisions. Do I keep it in the line, or not?

Since it was one of the first patterns I designed, I decided to give it new life by remaking the quilt in updated fabrics and redoing the pattern completely. It is now much easier for you to create, as all the pattern pieces are drawn out separately and ready for you to trace onto fusible web. There are new instructions and a guide sheet showing pattern placement.

There is a constant swirl of new pattern designs in my head and I'm working hard to have some new ones ready for Spring Market. But, for now, welcome back girlie, good to see you "keeping up with the times"!
