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 Monday - Mostly a DIY weekend

Welcome to the link-up for BOMs Away Mondays!
Where we share what we're doing on a BOM-type project 
so they don't stall out in UFO-land!
(Linky at the bottom.)

Our weekend was pretty much completely sucked up with a DIY project in the house - removed a built-in desk and cupboard that are never used and only become a mess magnet. Which left a few wall-repair issues and some electrical shifting around. 

I did get to work a smidge on my Mouse King just now. I really love the back-basting method, and you can see it in action here. I like to load up several pieces at a time so the fibers relax around the upholstery thread bastings, and then they just lay right down along the needle-turn lines.  :)

This guy is going to be really cute.

Have you done any BOM work lately?


Kate over at Katie Mae Quilts has joined me in hosting this meet-up,
and linking up from either end puts you on the party at both sides.


  1. Mouse King will be so darn cute! That project will be wonderful as are all of your projects. I have done the back basting method before. It has great results.

    Sorry you had to do non quilty non fun stuff with your desk but it is done now.

  2. Well done on dealing with that messy magnet. :) My weekend was DIY too - but now I have better lighting in my sewing space, so also totally worth it!
