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

WIP Wed. - 5 Dec 2012 - roses and bugs and cold fingers

Last week's WIP is finished, so the focus has shifted. 

Top billing is currently at the quilting station, where "Marissa's Moment" is back on line. This is twin-sized, with scalloped edges. The pinwheel field in the center is all quilted, as is the outer border and some stabilizing along the stems and leaves of the flower field. 

Right now I'm quilting in the bugs.  (The wrinkles you see are because the quilt's bunched up to catch some light.)   We have butterflies. . .

dragonflies. . . 

and bumble-buzzes.

Next, I'll do the lacework around the heart flowers.

Up on the main level of the house, I'm cutting pieces for the assembly of my "Wild Rose Cottage" BOM. I'll very likely do some piecing every now and then for a break from the intensity of FMQ work.

And when we're watching our post-dinner shows, I'm stitching the binding for "Wagon Wheels West - 2," after which I have the last little bit of very special quilting to fill in.

But I need to get me some of those fingerless gloves! My hands just get so chilled at night.

  7. Thanks for stopping by Freshly Pieced and for your nice comments about my sewing projects.

    I couldn't decide about what to do for the shams, as I've seen so many of them that I just didn't like. I so appreciate your observations that the blowing-them-up worked.

    Your stack of WIPs are inspirational. I esp. love the bugs and butterflies that you are quilting into your quilt.
