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

WIP - Finishing the Center

Been a while since I've done a WIP post. Still plugging away an hour each morning on my double wedding ring anniversary quilt. Putting the fill in now on the central focal area!



I used golden threads quilting paper to put in some personalization spots, like our initials, wedding year, 25th spot. . . And I "fenced" it off from the other rings which will all have the same design placed into them later.




Is it perfect? Not even. In particular, I'm dealing with tension issues while FMQing over the paper.




But it's pretty and it's getting finished - a far cry from my prior crippling need to have everything I do turn out perfectly. I'm so very glad I got over that!!

  3. So does pulling the paper out pull the stitches? The design is so good and effective. Touching.

  10. It is such a romantic quilt from colour, fabrics, design, to the quilting, so so much love can be seen every where one looks. Think of your great grandchild one day touching it with reverence saying oh great gran put so so much love in to this quilt. Cheers Glenda

  12. I'm abysmally behind on blog-reading, so I'm happily surprised to see how far you've progressed on this quilt. Such a great job you're doing! Your quilting looks really good, so no more bad-mouthing about a lack of perfection. You are a very skilled FMQer. I'm looking forward to catching up on all your posts about quilty pretties.
