Flimsies

I've decided I need a page to bridge the gap between WIPs (works in progress), and Finishes. Getting a quilt to the flimsy stage is a big milestone, but personally, I can't put it in the "finished" pile until it's quilted and bound.

And, it's not just quilts! Smaller pieces that just need to be made up may be in waiting here too. :D

Heart of Ringo -- A quick, surprise make, based on Bonnie Hunter's On Ringo Lake 2017 mystery quilt blocks.
Daydream Baskets -- The latest flimsy is another improv pieced project, inspired by the #basketswu quilt along. And the colour scheme is inspired by a daybed at Windsor Palace! I'm hoping to quilt it and move it to the finish page before most of these others...
9+ -- For the second quarter improv challenge at the Ad Hoc Improv Quilters (AHIQ), Kaja challenged us to make a two block quilt. In no time at all (three weeks!), I had a flimsy!
Modern Utility Quilt #3, "Nettie" -- After some improvisational "improving" of those ugly hourglass blocks I made, I mixed in some floral sashing and a layout inspired by Gee's Bend quilter Nettie Young.
Flamingos en Provence -- My version of Bonnie Hunter's annual mystery quilt for 2016, En Provence, includes copious amounts of the silly but gorgeous flamingo fabric collection from Melissa Ybarra of Iza Pearl Designs. Très chic!
Modern Utility Quilt #2, "Sunshine" -- A churn dash improv quilt with many sources (see here), and a couple words of my own!
Modern Utility Quilt #1, "Picnic" -- This was a spur of the moment project for the Ad Hoc Improv Quilters link up, that turned into a queen-sized quilt. It's large, but I still plan to quilt it myself as well.
Collector -- Based on the quilt designed by Cosabeth Parriaud in Quiltmania's Winter 2008 Special Edition. Started in 2012, I finally finished the flimsy in 2015. It's waiting now until my free motion quilting improves!
Circa 1998 -- This was the first flimsy I ever finished, back in 1998. It is a disaster, but the plan is to use it for free motion quilting practice.
