Friday flimsy

This flimsy is from Trudie Hughes' book Even More. The pattern is Road to St. Louis. It only took me a few days to put this quilt top together,but it has been aging for several years. I love the pink and brown combination. I have been totally sidetracked from sewing since last weekend. DD#3 wanted to be a pirate for a Halloween party. We looked and looked for a pirate shirt I had made for DD#2 a few years ago, but didn't find it. In the process of looking for it, the big walk in closet upstairs has been cleaned out, and now the storage disaster that is in the rec room is well on its way to being semi-organised, and yes, I found the pirate shirt the day after Halloween!


  1. I love Friday Flimsy / Flimsy Excuses posts! This quilt is another that really appeals to me. I love the scrappy 16 patches and the berry n' chocolate QST. Pink and brown work so well together.

  2. What a great quilt top.

    It's funny how a little thing starts an avalanche of decluttering/tidying, isn't it? We are going through the same thing!

  3. beautiful--I love the variety of scraps and the simple shapes making a very sophisticated quilt.
