Quilt ADD in therapy

Colorado, United States
Other than my family, the passion of my life is quilting. An eclectic, I love a wide variety of styles and techniques encompassing both machine and hand work. I am a longarm quilter who can work for you. I enjoy any style, from pantographs to all-over to full custom, ranging from traditional to modern. I love bringing vintage tops to life and am willing to work with a challenging quilt top. Instagram: lyncc_quilts

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!

  2. I very much enjoyed looking over your flimsies! There are gorgeous ones and fun ones but I love every single one! I noticed that you have quilted your animal one, and I adore what you did with your Grand Illusion. You sashed it like mine but I am loving your border so much better. I just had those units made and decided to use them. You may have done the same.

  3. Holy cow, that is a lot of flimsies! Thanks for the show and tell.

  4. Wow, you DO have a lot of unquilted tops!! And each one is more spectacular than the next!
