Flimsy Alert: A Barbeque with the Squadron

Can I get a Whoop, Whoop!?   ;D   (Love Sarah's link-up - it's the perfect place to share flimsies!)
 
Sunday is my BOM work day, and this past week I got one of my old ones all the way assembled into a top ready to be quilted! 

After we finished the long drive circuiting the Denver metro area to take one kiddo to her college and the other to the airport (lengthened by freezing rain and snow), it was nice to work up the last seams for a great flimsy finish.

 
 
 
This baby's 79 x 90, and I'm thinking I'll change its name from the "Selvages" that it came with to "A Barbeque with the Squadron."  It's got an Americana color scheme going, and the alternate blocks keep making me think of little picnic blankets. . .  besides, there's not a selvage on the thing!  Oops - except we're looking at it upside down.

 
 
 
Now the baskets are sitting the right way. Although Scott says those basket blocks look like a big fish chomping down a bunch of little fish...  ;D   

This is the first quilt that Boo Girl has had a hard time staying off of - guess she likes these colors!

You already know I'm in love with this quilt. I'm learning how to pin on Pinterest so I just pinned it. Hope that's okay.
