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

My WIP Wednesday #11

Dev's What a Hoot is almost there! 

After a mutual audition session wherein she chose the border and ribbon colors she wants, 

I got the inner grid and the first borders put together:

(This is hanging folded over in half.)
It was so funny - I worked a bit crazily to get the inner grid together before she got home that night from a date, thinking she'd be all excited. After a little looking, she says with a hurt-feelinged voice, "but how come mine don't get eyeballs??"  ROFL. I got a sheepish grin and "oh, yeah!" when I reminded her that the buttons get sewn on as the very last thing after quilting and even binding are finished. And furthermore, that she had helped me choose the buttons she wants for the eyes at the last button sale!  lolol

Now to make the triple ribboning with the Celtic corners. A bit of a headache, really. Why, oh whyyyy did I not take notes last year when I figured Heather's out??  Definitely doing that this time around, with pics for a tutorial, so I can do Marissa's much more easily in a few years when it's her turn.  :D

  1. So Stinkin' Cute! My 9 year old is still hanging on to the pink stage a bit longer so the quilt I did for her had a bit more pink in it then I would have liked. But your owls just take the cake!

  2. Love the What a Hoot quilt.
    I was going to skip posting this week but instead I got out all the things I would like to work on this next week and took photos. I'm hoping it will inspire me to get my act together.

  3. I'm laughing about the eyes!! So funny! It's so lovely that you'll pick buttons out together!

  4. Your quilt is soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo adorable!!!!
