I've quilted 23 flimsies (see the "Flimsy Completion" page) since December. I can tell that my free motion quilting is more confident and a lot faster as a result of all this practice.
Here's what became of the triangles left over from Rachel's Kaleidoscope . I decided to make a Friendship Star variation. I ought to have pulled the sashing and border fabrics at the same time, but I didn't. The pink-with-purple flower sashing, (which I bought years ago when Hobby Lobby had bins of clearance fabric) practically leapt from the shelf to the cutting table. I cut the sashes and sewed them on. Then I looked for border fabric. Nothing seemed right. It was late and I was tired, so I came upstairs and slept on it. This morning the turquoise-purple (looks like homespun but it's a print) and the grape-violet came to the top of the stack and were perfect. This flimsy is 52 x 62 and used 3-1/4 yards.
