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 - 19 Nov 2012 - Once Upon a Star Flimsy!!


Welcome to my Link-Up for BOMs Away Mondays!

(We'd love to see the BOM you're working on lately.)

Yeah!!  Look!  :D   Once Upon a Star is finally a full-fledged flimsy and transferred from the BOM list to the quilting-needed list!!

One problem - look at this spot! I'm not sure how to get it out. I carefully washed with dish soap, but it must be ironed in there.  

Any ideas? I thought I might dilute a little bleach and gently swab at it with a Q-tip, then rinse it carefully and fanatically.  But I decided I'd wait and see if any of you have much better ideas. Then I can address the edge that's lifted up despite the super-careful washing.


And if you haven't seen them already, take a glance at my most recent post and let me know if you'd like any of those patterns I'm giving to new homes.  :)


What have you guys done on BOMs or interval projects lately? Weeklies are welcome along with regular projects that you’ve broken into monthly units, and –of course- true BOMs.   Share your eye candy and show off your progress since the last time you linked up! There are some wonderful monthly and weekly projects going on out there. :D


  1. Lovely to see your long-term project now a flimsy!! Congrats!! ...and hey, you have 200 followers now too! :-)

  2. Shame about the spot, don't have any bright ideas for you I am afraid. Will be interested though to see what others come up with.

  3. applique a snowflake over it! ****

  4. I love the border. And um, I have no idea what to tell you about the spot - good luck! I hope you're able to get it out.

  5. Good luck with the spot- I'd be careful with the bleach, I've had holes in cotton fabrics after bleach. Have you tried one of those tide or tide bleach stain pens? I carry one in my purse and have used in on a variety of fabrics successfully. Not sure it'll help, but maybe worth a try. Otherwise I'm with gia gia- applique a snowflake!

    The quilt is beautiful!

  6. Your McKenna looks absolutely wonderful, definitely going on my 'to-make' list. What a shame about the spot, I'm not sure what to suggest - we have a product over here called Vanish which is quite good at removing stains, I think it may have a bit of bleach in it though.

  7. The flimsy look awesome! Bummer on the spot!!! I have no ideas. Good luck with it!
