Yes, I'm always the patriotic type haha.
It's the logo of my alma mater: International Islamic University Malaysia.
Quilling this one was like going back on a time-machine. It made me grinned (half-stupidly haha), and smiled back to the tonnes of memories I've spent there. I kinda miss my old unimates, and even though we are on each other's friendlist on facebook, we hardly met. Yeah, my coursemates were the we-are-too-cool-so-why-meet kind of people hahaha, so I don't really think reunion is anywhere around the block.
I was the busy bee. I was hardly in my room at night time - I was too busy attending meetings and meetings and meetings, and spent most of my weekends doing my facilitating works with my club. And when I wasn't busy attending meetings or club activities, I would be busy looking up the sky, waiting for the rain to fall. Seriously! - and at the very first hint that it's going to rain, we (my friends and I) would happily hop on the first bus to the nearest Giordano shop. They sold their oh-so-cool umbrellas at half price on rainy days, and we were collecting them oh-so-crazily haha. I guess that's when my love for rain started. :)
It takes a while (weeks!) to finish the whole logo, and as usual, I ran out of patience towards the end, and simply wanted to finish them all haha. Can't help it, I was quilling the coils at midnights, with eyes half closed. *Seriously need to monitor my quilling quality lately.* I was planning to quill my primary/ high school logos as well (told you I'm the patriotic type!), but those were much more complicated than this one. Later maybe, when I have the right guts. :P
Oh, here's the original logo of my uni (I know, my proportion is a bit off):
