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 - Feathers and Sleds

I needed a break from the machine, where I'm super happy with how well my first feather work has been going on the longarm. 


Two almost-identical quilts have been loaded on my machine, and I'm on the last of the border work. This shot is after I rotated them, because I wasn't comfortable doing the feathers vertically. I need to put a practice piece on the frame to work on that. 

I also need to work on free-handing my feathers instead of chalking them in first with templates that I made. The chalk works just fine on these quilts that will go straight into the wash after binding, but WOW, does it make me sneeze! And there's nothing wrong with using templates, but it sure will be a LOT faster to get them in my system without the templates.

I'm pushing for a full finish in time to post for Thank Goodness It's Finished Friday. (By the way, TGIFF is hosted here this week, so if you're close to a finish, get it whipped up so you can share!)

The other priority project I've got going is a set of cute little ornaments for a family crafted exchange. Basic construction is complete, and now the fun dressing-up can begin.  



Hope you're having a good week!

Thanks to Lorna for hosting Let's Bee Social.  :)
