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 - Thistlepods Spike Sets


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.)

How are you guys doing? Are you holding up alright? I washed a bunch of curtains yesterday and finished rehanging them today. I guess after 3 weeks, even us quilters start feeling the quarantine!

I got these sections made for my Thistle Pods project:


And I went through some storage space for spring cleaning - pulled out a BOM kit I got a couple years ago. Looking forward to getting that started this next week.

We would love to see any BOM work you're done lately.

BOMs Away - Thistlepod centers

Oops!  I was so busy distracting myself from pandemic worries last evening, I forgot to put the BOMs Away post up! 

Here's what I did over the weekend:


I got the next set of sections paper pieced for my Thistle Pods quilt. 36 of these babies.

I sure hope you're all still healthy. 

I'm glad quilting is an already-established part of my life that makes quarantining a much lighter mental burden than it is for some folks.


Interesting times, though, eh?  You can't even get a normal headache in peace, without having to discipline your mind away from premature worrying. 

Live smart, but not fearfully, these days.  :)

BOMs Away - Bringing Out the Thistlepods


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!

So.... Apparently I haven't done enough paper piecing in the past year. . . Guess I'm just in that groove, and my work areas are set up for it.

So I pulled out an old Judy Niemeyer kit from my cupboard and starting working on its first set of units for this week's BOM time:


These are for either 11" or 12" blocks, didn't measure them. 36 altogether.

They are from this kit:


Which I bought no later than October 2012 - yeesh!

And then prewashed all the fabrics in Oct 2018, deciding I wanted to replace the background fabric. 

The one I bought for that really tickled my fancy, recalling to mind a particularly magical drive home from Nebraska one evening, when snow flurries blew and hundreds of tumbleweeds rolled horizontally across I-76 in northeast Colorado. I remember being enchanted as well as feeling like we were in a video game, dodging the large rollers since there was no other traffic. Thistlepods aren't exactly tumbleweeds, but the combination of the design and the background fabric I found evoked the memory.
