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

My WIP #15 - Rolling out still more UFO's!

Moving some more UFO’s onto the target range!

Sailing with the Flying Needles

Binding half-way stitched down – about 81” square. Then a wash and embellishments. This is the first time I've used straight seams on binding, but I needed to match the switch between turquoise and navy. . .


 Around the World with Mr. Hernandez

(Twin memory quilts, about 50” square each). Getting marked for concept quilting & sandwiched for attention this week! We’ll see if I can get them both quilted. Backs and binding already cut, pressed, ready to go.

And Lori’s Irish Butterflies are on-hand by my piecing machine for when I get sick of quilting.  :D

Oh, yes! And the other two girls (those who are not going gung-ho with a dragon project around wisdom-tooth surgery recovery) are starting triplet heart quilts to get minky backs.


A big "Thank you!" to Lee at Freshly Pieced for hosting WIP Wednesdays

  5. Lyn, thanks for your comment on my blog. I'm loving the colours of your Around the World. Warm and Vibrant! I haven't done much embellishment yet, so I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with yours.

  6. Hello! This quilt is wonderful! I love also the dragon and wolf quilts! Great work! I hope to join your Monday Party next week!

  7. Looking good - just undo the binding seam and resew (by hand) the joint and they'll match up.

    Thanks for the eye candy!

  8. You have been busy. I'd love to have a finish in the not too distant future.
    Looking forward to seeing all the embellishments.

  14. You are making great progress! Love the Around the World quilt, and the wolf quilt... you did exactly the right things with the quilting on it. Impressive. Hugs and Kisses... adorable. You've got a lot going on, but all going in the right direction...toward done!

  15. You are definitely coming along on your projects. It's good to know that I'm not the only one who has more than 2 quilt tops waiting to be quilted.
