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

Feb OMG and UFO goals met :)

I'm weary at this almost-end of the month and can use the pick-me-up of reporting these goals met, although my OMG needs a photo op to do its formal finish post. Which will happen for TGIFF, by the way! (That's being hosted here this week, so come back and link up if you have a finish to share!)

First, my OMG for February was this mini quilt for Scott. I stitched the binding down today, and it's currently mostly dried during its blocking session. This is from the "Night Watch" kit by Marie Noah at Northern Threads.

Second, my UFO #1 draw for the Patchwork Times challenge was my Fancy Forest top. I've done a ton of work on this and succesfully finished the first two phases of the custom quilting on it! Each figure has detail quilting in an appropriate color. I think I've used 12 colors altogether. 

Yes, there are tails - I like to tie & tuck, and since this is my own quilt, I'll spend my time doing that at the sofa with a good movie going. Customer quilts get this task done on the frame as I go so that they're never in contact with my cats, and progress pics for the owners are nice and neat.  :)   I don't know if I'll get the background fill finished on this before I have to take it off for a customer quilt that is in transit right now. I want to put in woodsy motifs like bark and pine needles, pinecones, etc.

  9. Double congratulations! Wonderful quilting, 12 colours? Wow. I like to hand stitch my thread ends too, even though it can take hours, I have such a thing about stitching becoming unravelled later, enough is never good enough. Wish I could let go a little.
