Quilt ADD in therapy

Colorado, United States
Other than my family, the passion of my life is quilting. An eclectic, I love a wide variety of styles and techniques encompassing both machine and hand work. I am a longarm quilter who can work for you. I enjoy any style, from pantographs to all-over to full custom, ranging from traditional to modern. I love bringing vintage tops to life and am willing to work with a challenging quilt top. Instagram: lyncc_quilts

BOMs Away - Surfer's Point & Nutcrackers


Welcome to the link-up for BOMs Away Mondays!
Where we share what we're doing on a BOM-type project 
so they don't stall out in UFO-land!
(Linky at the bottom.)

Whew~!  These feathered starts for "Surfer's Point" are a bit finicky to put together! But the first two are sewn and up on the wall. (And I'm really happy with all the points. I had to redo about 8 of them, but considering there are, what. . .112 of them on each block, that's pretty darn lucky!)

The blocks are huge at 22 inches.


Next time, I'm going to mark the pattern templates with a few key matching points to help keep things lined up straight on the partial seam lines. There aren't any there, and it leaves things susceptible to sliding out of alignment along 8 important seams that are on the bias. Hopefully, next month's blocks will go more smoothly when I find and mark those points.


I also gave my Sue Garman Nutcrackers some attention. I was cleaning up the mess of my stash yardage tubs and found some Christmas fabrics that work marvelously with these guys. So I got a start on the sashing process.


Some of the Nutcrackers have applique pieces that overlap the sashing, so those have been back-basted for evening slow stitching.


I'm excited to see these guys come together!!

Have you worked on your BOMs lately?

BOMs Away: Swans - From the Heart


Welcome to the link-up for BOMs Away Mondays!
Where we share what we're doing on a BOM-type project 
so they don't stall out in UFO-land!
(Linky at the bottom.)

The first week of the month is for my Swan Island BOM, so I made two more swans:


I really do love this project! (I don't love trying to get the camera to see the colors properly.)

Also, I realized that I never did share the center of From the Heart when it was assembled in mid-August:


I have the applique border prepped for the hand work, and it's in my applique bag behind the last of the berries for my Dahlia quilt top and Block 6 of my Octopus Garden long-term BOM. It'll be December, at least, before I get to these borders.


~*~*~*~

I hope you had a good week. How are your BOMs going?

BOMs Away - Forever My Valentine


Welcome to the link-up for BOMs Away Mondays!

You can probably tell I really needed to get back to variety this month - weekend BOM time is perfect for that. I still focus only on the Dahlia quilts Mon-Fri, but I get to cut loose from that Sat and Sun.  :)  

This weekend I pulled out my old "Forever My Valentine" BOM and got Block 5 done up:


Navarre is drawn to this project with its black background and insisted on being in a photo op. Don't you love cats?
