Flimsies Awaiting

Hi! As I madly work my way through the insane backlog of UFOs and NETYs that I amassed over the decades, my collection of Flimsies grows ever larger. Don't worry, they'll all get quilted eventually. For now (and into the foreseeable future), I do not have a nice, fast longarm, so my domestic table-top machine and I pump them out slowly, but surely.


The term "Flimsy" is an affectionately-held word that is used in much of the quilting world to connote a proudly finished quilt top. It is in no way an inferior item, but is an item of achievement that is still in a vulnerable, incomplete, not-yet-usable state, waiting to be quilted for its full glory. It is a stage of celebration, especially for large and intricate works.

    1. Thanks so much, Pauline. Yep! "Flimsies" are unquilted tops. I get so eager for all of these to be done up!
