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 - Petals and Spears and a Tip

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.)

This week's BOM harvest - 
24 petals paper pieced and 12 curved-9-patch spears:

And a tip for curved piecing that is glue prepped: Keep Sewer's Aid and a speck of felt-like cotton batting on hand so you can swip it down the needle between units. Works wonders at preventing skipped stitches. Also great when stitching/quilting through layers of fusible webbing.


How about you? Have you done work on your BOMs 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.

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

  1. Great tip about glue! Pretty blocks

  2. I love quilts with lots of sharp points. What you have going is interesting, looking forward to seeing it progress.

  3. Those petals and spears look FABULOUS!

  4. It is looking yummier with each bit of progress.
