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

One priority goal checked off. :)

I've been working hard on my quilting and piecing priorities (both of which are intense), and one has paid off this morning. 

These green checkerboards for my Listen with Your Eyes quilt were the second part of my January goal for this quilt. It is on my 18 in 2018 list, but I intend to finish all its piecing, so I'm not checking it off yet.

I was meticulous with the seams, so I'm hoping everything fits together happily in the end! Four more color sets to make, and then a bunch of black-and-white curved strips.

Getting the diamond/NYB star circles put together was the first part of my January piecing goal, which I shared last week:

Now that those two sets are all finished, I get to take a break from this quilt until February and work on other projects in the mornings. I have two gifts I intend to finish by month's end: 

Scott's Wildlife Trio, a mini for him to put up at work. It's already pieced (in a fashion that has already finished the edges) and fused, and you can see how little it is, so it shouldn't take too long to finish up:

First I'll focus on "Nicole's Mountains," a mini I just designed to do up for her birthday in early Feb. It catches my fancy, I think I'll make it in duplicate so I can keep one, too, assuming Scott doesn't steal it for work. He's really into minis at his offices!
