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 - A Moment with Family


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.)

So sorry to be so late!  Our daughter and her man were here for a long weekend, so I didn't do any BOM work. 


Here are some pics, though, for a little eye candy.  :)  

Some of the deer that frequent our property stopped by for some birdseed and a nap on the knoll. This was a doe herd of younger gals, which looked small to Scott and I and huge to Devon and Cory, who are used to the  petite Florida white-tailed deer.


They never got to catch a glimpse of Bun, who lives under our deck and comes out for produce-tossings from kitchen scraps and birdseed dropped by the deer...of course he showed up shortly after they left:


Everything was so nice and green here after last week's freak snow. A shot of the meadow at the bottom of our back slope:


Hiking occurred, of course. 



Devon LOVES the mountains, and any boulder outcrop like this is absolutely irresistible to her.


And back at the house, "Who's fluffier?" contests between Cory's hair and our ragdoll cat, Isabeau. . .


. . .and our other daughter's dog, Mango.


And now all is quiet once more with just the two of us in-house again. Navarre enjoys all visitors, but he's taking the sudden quietude in stride and apparently awaiting a spa treatment - Ha!


Back to the matter of quilting: 

I've pulled a new old BOM project out and hope to have the next section ready to share for next week!

So, what about you? Have you been able to work on a BOM? 
Sure would love to see!

BOMs Away - Thistlepod Corners


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.)

Crazy Colorado - we had full-on snow for several hours, starting late afternoon yesterday. Between that and COVID19 quarantine and StayHome weirdness since February for us, my brain cannot get wrapped around the concept that it is not late March or early April. I feel like Easter should be coming up soon. . .  

Too funny!

So, hey!  I got the 4 corner border blocks finished for Thistlepods:


And that is the last of the paper piecing for this quilt!

These are huge blocks. The biggest I've ever made. That is a full size magazine catalog on it here:


I should have the rest of the quilt top assembly finished today. Which is good, because I need it off the floor so I can super-clean before our daughter arrives on Thursday.

BOMs Away - 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!
(Linky at the bottom.)

Hi! How are you doing today?

I am absolutely amazed, because I put together the S-curves on these 24 border blocks for "Thistlepods," and I did not need to rip One. Single. Seam.


That has to be a first!!

Flat-head pins and a skinny glue stick - that's the ticket. The thin glue stick is a tool that is definitely worth its cost in situations like this. For a lot of my quilting glue needs, I go to the cheap-o washable school glue sticks, but for jobs like this, those are far too unwieldly. The thin quilter's sticks are perfect for delicate dabbing along small seam allowances.


These are easily the hugest border blocks I've ever made. That's why I dropped the BluRay box into the photo, so we could see the scale.

Until I get the corner blocks put together - Now, *those* will be gigantic blocks!!
I still have to finish the piecing of their sawtooth sections.


But I did get the flying geese arcs finished - don't they look like centipedes right now? 


I was weary of sewing tasks, and that's a bad time to do any trimming on finished paper-pieced sections, so that'll wait until tomorrow.  :)
