Earlier this month the team at Robert Kaufman announced the 2017 Kona Color of the Year and it is Pink Flamingo. This is the second year that a limited edition color has been released (last year's color was Kona Highlight), to be retired at the end of this year.

Of course I couldn't wait to get my hands on some (and no, I didn't buy a whole bolt). The color is quite a warm but vibrant pink, aptly named Pink Flamingo. As always I enjoying playing with color and trialled numerous color combinations for a quilt that I have been planning to make for some time. The final color palette ~

  1. Wow, Rita! I'm intrigued and would love to know how you machine pieced this quilt. It is absolutely perfect!

  2. I had to look twice at it. Thought it was printed fabric at first it was so perfect. Great job!

  3. Love the hexi quilt. Will you be posting how you machine quilted it?

  4. I know. Y seams, and it is not that hard. You are incredibly industrious, Rita. That makes me very happy because we enjoy the creative escapades you venture in. I do not like this warm pink, but you did cool it off nicely. Parchment and white kona are such trusty colors.
    I hope you are well. Thank you for sharing everything you do

  5. Love Pink Flamingo. As a Fl. girl, and a collector of Vintage Flamingos, not to mention TWIN grand daughters on the way, I need to get my hands on some!!

  6. Beautiful! I have seen Flamingo and am excited to use it, but I haven't decided on a project yet. I love your Hexagons and the flamingo looks great with the white and the parchment!

  7. I would love to use these 3 colors in an easier pattern. I love this so much!!

  8. Beautiful combination of solids and I think you should buy a whole bolt!

  9. Love this colour! I would have had problems restraining myself and I would have bought a whole bolt!

    Hmmm, it's the Year of the Rooster, and the colour of the year is Flamingo. 2017 definitely has an avian theme!

  10. With three girls at home, Pink Flamingo is our "colour of the year"... every year!!! Love it also!
