Rainbow Flimsy

 A finished top for Hands2Help

This came together quickly since it's just simple piecing. It's all about the fabrics and colors. 

It's always windy here so I found a way to anchor the bottom of the flimsy down for photos. 

In my yard I have bright sun or deep shade. This is a deep shade photo, but the colors are true in the outdoor light. 

The flimsy finished at about 50 x 67", a good size for an adult throw. This will go to a cancer support charity after quilting. 

I have a plan for quilting - not a spiral, but overlapping arcs suggesting partial big spirals. Hopefully, this will be a finish for Hands2Help before too long. 


  1. Spring is dragging here feet and it is cold again today. Therefore I am even more thrilled with your colorful flimsy finish. Like you are telling nature - let's do this, just like this :-)

  2. Using the clips for weight at the bottom of the flimsy is a great idea. It's nice when you have a quilting plan in mind and can move quickly to getting a quilt top finished.

  3. Gotta love a rainbow quilt! So pretty!

  4. I can't picture what the quilting will be, Jan. Looking forward to seeing the completed quilt!

  5. It turned out so nice! I'm eager to see your quilting idea in action. And I completely understand the "too much wind, too much sun" frustration :)

  6. What a great way to anchor that quilt! It will be very loved!
