So, I was finishing the binding on my quilt Saturday, and did not post anything, hope this will make up for my laps. All outside activities were cancelled yesterday (Saturday) no UHURU Guild meeting and no church meeting because of the freezing rain and snow, so I got to stay in bed and but that binding on in-between watching my grandson, and falling to sleep. I made several calls to see what some of my quilting friends were working on (I think I have friends that don't quilt?). I was talking to my Bee/Guild member Linda from Eat, Sleep, Quilt, I was telling her about my UFOs (UFQs) that I have to do, and she said that the quilts I had were "flimsies". I have never heard this quilt term before. I called a couple of other quilt friends, and they never heard of this word "Flimsy" either. So I did a search and found out that this term meaning "an un-quilted top" has been out for about a year or two. Well, this just lets me know that you will always have something to learn in the quilting world, if it's not a new technique, it is a new quilting term. SO ALL YOU LONG-TIME AND SHORT-TIME QUILTERS, add "FLIMSY" to your quilting vocabulary.
|This is Wickedly Easy B&W Queen size "FLIMSY" which I am hopping|
to send out to have quilted and it will not be a flimsy any more.
|This is another Flimsy, a Jelly Roll quilt race that I finished in 1 hr. or less|
Hopefully, I will hit the lottery and be able to get this one quilted also
|This is a true UFO, and I will let|
you know more about what is in this
