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 - Kelly's "Strolling the Block"

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.

Boy, doesn't March just sneak in on you when you're a quilter with things to get done?  ;D

First Sunday means it's time to work on one of my cousin, Kelly's, quilts. I didn't work as long as I'd wanted on her "Strolling the Block" since I started the day out getting one of my retreat projects all prepped for the trip.

I did get both April and May quilted up, though. 

I don't do a lot of small-detail quilting on these blocks, generally just following the outlines of the various pieces. But I did go along all the cement lines around the stones on this pathway fabric. It just wanted to be done, plus that layer of applique was particularly stiff and it puffed out not-so-nicely.

I really like the raindrops I'd stitched on April's sky. 

And especially the tulips!  :)

So, it's your turn to share any work you've done on your BOMs lately!


  1. I really like your blocks. The raindrops are nice detail.

  2. I love all the little details in these blocks, The tulips and rain drops are so sweet.

  3. The details are wonderful, I can tell what month they are just by looking, showers and flowers is so cute, but I like the May pole too.

  4. Cute blocks. I love what you're doing with the details.

  5. I, too, love those raindrops! And it is sometimes a pain, yet when we see the end result of some stitching that took forever, the pain was so worth it. Case in point, your path. It will pop for sure!

  6. Your flower box is sprouting flowers...:) Still no sewing over here.

  7. Beautiful blocks with such wonderful details. I really like the raindrops. Very pretty!


  8. Just a few more projects to get under control, and then I'm going to be back to my General's Wives BOM! You certainly made some progress in your quilting. I look forward to seeing what tomorrow brings.
