Quilt ADD in therapy

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 - Love Birds!

                  

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!

Alright! All 730 sets of thread ends are tied and tucked, papers gone, and lovebirds all lined up!

So this week for BOM time I hit the assembly line. Got about a third of them put into rows, some of those rows sewn together. Not the greatest shot of all that work, but there you are:

(Navarre wants FOOD, not a photo op!)

And then I decided to pin the next round. Probably won't get to it today, but it's ready for any time I have a few moments for piecing.  :)


Quilting on the King'd Dinner Plate Dahlia is moving along great! Next up is the fill work on the "white" petals (actually a very light gray).


And then the coordinating fill work on the outer light lime petals, then some peacock feather eyes around all the berries in the green arches, the blue feather work, then petal work in the cornflower blue, teal, and cobalt blue areas, the navy big arches, the purple outer petal arches. . . Oh, the line work in the teal corner insets . . . .  I do believe that's all that's left!! I've finished all of the hardest parts.  I may - MAY - just have this quilting finished by month's end!

BOMs Away - a Weekend In

                  

Welcome to the Link-up for BOMs Away Mondays!

I got a lot of sewing done on BOMs and such this weekend! We have a dramatic Covid spike in our area at the moment, so we decided we were just going to enjoy Home for the time being. 

This week's BOM was our Temperature Quilt.  All those dots from the last cutting session provided the final 5 for the last row I'd worked on assembling last month. . . 



And then made 4+ more rows!  



I cut out all the dots from Thanksgiving to the end of the year . . . 


And I prepped the documentation block for the bottom:


I always use the back-basting method for hand applique. For this block, I printed out my words in a font I liked, taped it upside down on my light box, and trace the outlines onto the back of my block's foundation. That's all the prep there is! The remainder is restful stitching during TV time.  


I used cutouts from the temperature blocks to prep the Key dots. 

 

Well, up to 65 degrees - after that I had to cut fresh dots out of the hotter colors. Our highest low was only 65 degrees. I never got to use my two hottest colors, as the highest high was only 95. 





And that pile of the other 350 cut-outs - I realized they would make excellent berries for some other project, so I put them in a baggie and stored them in my little Extra Applique Pieces drawer!  Future fun with those. 

While assembling my dots, I ran out of Stitch-Off pieces, so I prepped another round of those.



And I finished up the quilting of the large gray areas on my King size Dinner Plate Dahlia. . . After Navarre helped me figure out a template for my spines!




 This is my January longarming UFO focus, and I'm eager to get it onto the bed. 

A good bunch of work accomplished!  :)

BOMs Away - DOTS and DOTS and Caribbou

                 

Welcome to the Link-up for BOMs Away Mondays!

This week was fun - since my Neptune's Gift BOM is caught up to the next delivery, I started again on non-BOM work during the week, and the first attack was getting this UFO to flimsy status:

This is Marie Noah's "Caribou Crossing" pattern, and is the 5th of the six wall quilts Scott requested for his office. 


And my BOM work this weekend was to stitch down a huge pile of Temperature Dots for our 2021 quilt:



This stack brings up to Thanksgiving Day, and I'm not peering at teeny tiny blanket stitching edges any more today.
