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 - Another Variety Show

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.)

Check it out - it's only the first week of the month, and I already worked on my OMG. That's a rare happening! I finished the piecing of the second mini-of-the-month that Scott asked for last year.

This is "Raven's Throne," designed by Marie Noah, and I got it in a kit from Northern Threads.
I don't like the stiffness of laser-cut fusible kits, but you can't beat the ease, eh?

I also finished the hand work on Block 6 for From the Heart (designed by Arlene Stamper and Melissa Harris). There are only two applique blocks remaining. Yay!

And I got all of Devon's Dinner Plate Dahlia Technique-of-the-Month cut out (a Judy Niemeyer pattern). It takes almost 11 hours. (The cutting, not the quilt-making.)

I was able to do all this BOM work this past week, because I've have a low-to-moderate grade migraine for 7 days running. I can't do any work at my longarm, as the machine sound and vibration ramps up the migraine in just a couple of moments. Sometimes I can get away with a few moments at the domestic machine, but not many. I'm really hoping this brat goes away very, very soon!!!


Hopefully, you don't have any migraine issues! Did you do any BOM work this week?
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. Wow...you sure got a lot done considering how awful you must have felt! I can't wait to see your Dinner Plate Dahlia quilt! I have a couple Quiltworx patterns but always seems to be something else that has to be done first. I sure do love them though. Hope you are feeling 100% soon!

  2. You're making another Judy quilt? I have 1 pattern I hope to get to next year. I'll be emailing you for advice for sure. Have you cut all the pieces for the Dahlia quilt or just a certain section. I'm always afraid to cut everything at once for fear I'll really make some kind of mistake and not have enough fabrics! Happy Stitching and hope you feel better soon.

  3. You accomplished so much. I hope the migraine has disappeared and the your are back to doing what you love. I have a couple of BOM projects but have not done any work on them lately.

  4. WOW! That Ravens throne is stunning~!

  5. WOW! That Ravens throne is stunning~!

  6. I love your two projects, they are beautiful, both!

  7. I don't know how you endure a migraine that goes on for days! Mine only last a few hours and that's miserable enough :( I'm glad you're able to get a little stitching in, though. Distraction is good!

  8. Raven’s Throne is beautiful. I specially like the mountains. From the Heart block looks lovely too. Migraine is horrible. I hope you are doing better now. You did really well considering how incapacitating migraines are. Your little kitty is adorable :)
