Today, we are excited to introduce you to Beverly McCullough of Flamingo Toes.
Beverly grew up in a creative family of artists and seamstresses so it is no surprise that she loves to create. She began sewing and doing needlework as a teenager and made her own clothes and room décor even then. That love for sewing and crafting has grown to include jewelry making, furniture refinishing and anything else she can learn, and her blog, Flamingo Toes, was born out of a love of sharing those projects. Her style could probably be described best as a mix between modern and vintage – she loves taking old styles and making them new and fun again. She is married to her high school sweetheart and is a recent transplant to Nashville, Tennessee.
Beverly’s newest collection, Vintage Adventure, features retro glampers, hot air balloons and bicycles, in bright, cheerful shades of aqua, red and pink.
For Block 2 of the Meet the Makers Quilt, Beverly fussy cut the glampers and bicycles, which added a fun touch to this beautiful block.
Take a look at Beverly’s Instagram @flamingotoes, and be sure to follow her for tons of beautiful photos, ideas and inspiration!
In order to get to know Beverly a little better, we gave her a list of words in alphabetical order to which she could give any reply that came to mind. Enjoy this fun and refreshing look at life from Beverly’s unique perspective!
