The Beothuk Flimsy Saga

 The Beothuk Quilt along hosted by Sandra has been a smashing success, if you go to her pages and see the parade, there are stunning quilts, blocks and flimsies  there.
https://www.mmmquilts.com/2019/06/beothuk-star-qal-final-parade-of.html

This morning all I had to do was one final  border seam, then we had a power cut for THREE hours. However my darling man hooked up the generator, ran a long lead and bingo, I managed to sail in under the finishing line.  Here are some stars and the flimsy.






Nothing is in the right order, but this is one more superb QAL from Sandra, Read her words and see where the original Beothuk idea came from.
Meantime, I can relax, have a coffee, and sit by the fire. Grey skies, a ginger cat on the bed, and the garden looks great, alterations coming up the home straight, just the laundry and hall to be done now. 

Quotation of the day, from C.S. Lewis
" You are never too old to set a new goal 
or to dream a new dream"
Greetings from Jean

Another centre star that SINGS Jean! I thought this was Louise's second one, but nope it YOU! So glad for wonderful capable husbands who can hook up generators and such and keep us girls happy with our machines humming! I'm so glad you quilted along again with me this year. Thank you SO very much, especially with all the upheavals (I can so TOTALLY relate) in your home life over the past several months!

Thank you both so much Kathleen and Sandra, Fireworks, that is indeed a great way to celebrate this finish, as we have COLD rain and snow further north of us. Sandra, another utterly fab QAL, I am so glad you manage to give us this each time, each one different, and us happy bloggers and friends can join in. No power meant no laptop internet, and that smart phone is not the same.

Kathleen, I read on Google ( The guru of all info) that indeed there will be fireworks on 4th July in Portland, Maine. We have friends in St Croix, who visited NZ and stayed with us in our other home. Now they are a little further south, with less snow maybe.

Such words of contentment there in your last lines of this post, Jean. I love them and that quote...inspiration for us getting on in life for sure.
Meanwhile, your blocks are such beauties with those almost glowing colours. While I now experience warmth and sunlight, day 5 and counting, you are bundling and keeping warm. Our amazing world.
