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 - Garden Friends, Grand Illusion, & a Visitor

Welcome to the Link-Up for BOMs Away Mondays! 
We'd love to see the BOM you're working on lately. 
This week's link-up is at the bottom of the post.

For Third-Sunday I pulled out "Garden Friends" and pieced the last two of the central blocks. I also fused all their applique pieces on:

 And I just pressed the last seam for the center of my Grand Illusion! Give me a couple of days to get all the borders on, and I'll share what I've done with that.

But I had a really great visitor for a good half of the day. This young fellow is the sweetest cat in the world! Clearly not a stray, we took him in while the kids canvassed the neighborhood to see where he was missing from. He's so sweet, though, I think every single person in the family would have been happy to adopt him if necessary. And as you can see, he fit right in with my quilting space, happily laying on various projects and lounging on the desk to watch me work. He even climbed onto my belly when I kicked my feet up to pick out a wayward seam and snoozed for a while. Too bad his human was joyful that he was found!


Have you worked on any of your BOMs lately?


  1. He's beautiful and would have fit in nicely with your two beauties, how did they like the company?

  2. Wow! The borders on your Grand Illusion quilt is awesome! I'm working on that to day too.

  3. Your Grand Illusions is really nice. It's inspiring me to work on my own. Have a great week! ~Melanie

  4. Cute blocks.
    Looks like your visitor really enjoyed your projects as much as we do.

  5. I love the birdhouses and you are sashing your Grand Illusion very similar to mine. I like it. I am liking mine as well and hoping to finish the to today. Thank you Holiday Monday!

  6. I Lyn, I wish I was working on a block of the month - I would do Deana's in a heartbeat. Too many other quilts in my lineup first though. What an adorable visitor you had... It's just wonderful for his owner that your family is so caring! Love the two blocks you are working on!

  7. Sure love your blocks and your meow inspector.

  8. I love how your Grand Illusion is turn out. I so need to get back to that one too. I see you have lots of help.

  9. Your Garden Friends blocks are darling!
    Love the little peek at Grand Illusion too - looks really pretty!

  10. Love the Garden Friends! Such a cute set of blocks. And take it from me - a fluffy tuxedo kitty is a baaaaaaad idea. Pass him right back to his owner. ;)
