It's a flimsy!

It was inspired by this c1890 quilt top I saw at Rocky Mountain Quilts described as follows:
"This is a whimsical original rendition of an Irish Chain, which to follow the pattern needs to be viewed from a distance. How amazing would this be in a great room over a fireplace? this quilt was obviously pieced by someone who loved calicoes. No solid colors here. The fabrics date from 1860 to 1890, giving us the creation date of this piece. This is a quilt top for a fabric junkie. There are many patterns pieced on this top. Variation of diamond in a square, old maids puzzle, bow tie, broken dishes, four patch, all combined together creating the most unusual Irish Chain I have ever seen. All pieced by hand, and ready to quilt."
I made my version completely from scraps found in the 1.5 and 2.5 scrap bins. In addition the little 1.5 inch HST pieces were cut with the Easy Angle ruler off the end of strips used to make QSTs (cut with Companion Angle Ruler)) for my Vintage Thingamajigs quilt.
Blocks finished at 4 inches.
I love all those secondary patterns!
I have a question. Does the word "flimsy" used to describe a quilt top bother you? I had a comment from someone who was highly offended that flimsy was used to describe a quilt top because to her flimsy meant it was not made well, not sturdy, not worth much.
I'm not offended by much. What about you? Flimsy or quilt top? I'm curious.
