TGIFF Flimsy Alert! - Quiet Rebellion on the Pond

One last UFO significantly advanced on its way to being completely shot down! 

"Quiet Rebellion on the Pond" is now a full-fledged flimsy.


All those geese tried mighty hard to fly away!

I know *exactly* how I want to quilt this, but I don't have the capacity at the moment. Hopefully I can get it on a longarmer's wait list soon.  :)

Considering we had to sell a home and then moved across the country, I'm feeling really great about how many large-quilt projects were brought to flimsy stage before my semester started up.



Tomorrow just after 11am, this flimsy's photo op site will be the northern boundary of my neighborhood!! 

And today, Scott and I have been married for 23 years!!!!! We didn't even realize it is our anniversary until we were halfway to the interstate to take Devon's stuff back up to school (90 minutes away). We high-5'd each other across the truck, figuring a new home was a most excellent anniversary gift!





So Devi is now happily ensconced in Buckingham Palace . . .  


er . . . Hall.



With this beauty right outside her building.



And doing exciting things already, like driving a ZAMBONI!  How cool is that?! (She's working at the university's ice rink this year.)

Great job on another finish! Quiet Rebellion on the Pond is simply gorgeous! I love flying geese borders, especially with lots of color. The inner border will be a great place for some really cool quilting!

Congrats and tackling yet another UFO. Those geese are so much fun. And that's a pretty cool job your daughter has.

Your quilt is lovely--and how great is it that you know how you want it quilted (that always hangs me up)! Happy Anniversary!

Congratulations on your anniversary. We celebrate 40 years this year! Also think it's cute that Devi is now settled in Buckingham Hall. We have a building close to work that is a share house and is called Buckingham House and I have often been tempted to do a blog about it.
Hope you are settling into your new surroundings after your dramatic move! It certainly looks like an exciting part of the world.
And I love the colours of your quilt. Good luck with the finishing off.
