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

BOMs Away - From the Heart block 9


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.)

Hello, there.  :)  

I can share my finished block 9 for my "From the Heart" BOM:


Now I have some pieced blocks to make before this can be assembled.

And
 
Did you see that I shared the fully assembled Dinner Plate Dahlia for Devon's colorway?


80 x 80 in.
I like the Judy Niemeyer Technique-of-the-Month patterns, as I usually learn one (if not several) new techniques. I'll be an old hat at the tricks this quilt pattern held by the time I'm finished with #3 and #4!



Hey, I'm going to put another call-out for TGIFF here - 

Do you have a finish that's almost ready? Would you like to host a TGIFF link-up at your blog? (We can supply linking code, so you don't need your own subscription for that.)

Dates available are August 23, September 13, and December 6 and 20. 
The sign up sheet is at This Link.

~*~*~*~

But back to you! How are your BOMs doing 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.

TGIFF is Here! - Devon's Dinner Plate Dahlia is a Flimsy!!

Hello!  Welcome to this week's Thank Goodness It's Finished Friday hosting spot!


Here is where you can link up your finishes that you're excited/proud/relieved about! Show us your finished quilt, or complicated quilt top, or even a full set of intricate blocks that took you forever to do!
We appreciate your including a link to this event in the post that you're sharing, and when you link up, don't forget to use the URL for your particular post page or image, not the general URL for your blog/album/IG account.  :)


**If you would like to host TGIFF at your blog one Friday, see THIS PAGE for the sign-up link. (You do not need a thumbnail link-up subscription, as the blog managers can provide that for you.) 


We do have an opening for August 23rd if you would like to host TGIFF at your blog that day.  :)

This is a big-deal finish for me to be able to show, even though it's actually a half-way point. If you've ever made one of the more complicated Judy Niemeyer or Jacqueline DeJong quilts, you would know why!!

80 x 80 inches

Many, many hours went into the cutting-out, alone, of this top, and many, many more into the paper piecing and assembly work. But here it is, Devon's "Dinner Plate Dahlia" in the colorway she wanted!

Devon just did a 109-mile bike event at Big Bear Lake in southern California:



This is a Judy Niemeyer paper piecing pattern. 

It has quite a few more spots than normal for her where you have to match intersections exactly. I did a good bit of unpicking and resewing, and I'm well pleased with the end result.


I both dread and look forward to the one I need to get to work on for Marissa. Each of our three girls will have one of these, and then I'm going to make the larger size for Scott & I to put on our king bed. Sometimes I self-commit to the most insane projects!!!!! 


~*~*~

How about you? Have you finished a quilt, or quilt top, or complicated set of blocks recently? We'd love to see your accomplishment!  

Link up a post or IG photo below and look around a bit to help your fellow quilters celebrate a finished quilt or stage!  :)

BOMs Away - California Edition


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.)

Hi! I'm enjoying a sort of survey vacation of southern-to-central California with our daughter, Devon.


We spent two nights in San Diego, where we did a private yoga session on Sunset Cliffs, walked the beach and hiked the bluffs of Torrey Pines State Reserve, and met up for dinner with two of my favorite high school friends!


Then we spent two nights in Big Bear Lake, where Devon rode the 109 mile route in the Tour de Big Bear bicycle event. 

And now we're spending two nights outside Sequoia National Park so we can do some easy hikes to see the biggest-volume tree in the world (General Sherman), climb up Moro Rock, and do the Meadow-something loop.

It's difficult posting from my phone, so I'll put more pics up when I'm home.

Have you worked on any BOMs lately?
