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! I have been an avid quilter for many years. Most of us accumulate a lot of tops that haven't yet been quilted up. This is my visual record of all my tops that are hanging in the closet, waiting for their turn on the longarm.

By the Way -

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!
