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

My WIP Wednesday #12

Ahhhh. . . :D 

What a Hoot is all topped up now, ready for a date with Patty and her longarm! (This is a long-twin, perfect for cheering up a drab dorm room.) 

Oops - I still need to pop in a movie and comb over the back for all the trailing threads. This much white with that many dark/bright patches is a recipe for disaster. If you don't, the strings show through when they meander under the white. Yes, I worked on a tutorial for those Celtic Knot borders, but it's not quite ready yet.

Marissa's Moment only has 5 heart yo-yo's left to stitch on. It lives in my "Away Tote," which gets pulled out for handwork during appointment waits, etc.  (She wanted them stitched this way around, and it's her quilt, so I oblige.)

And it's time to put the next project on the front burner, which is finishing Hugs and Kisses from Above. Need to change Sapphira over for free-motioning, and then I'll quilt up the pin-basted charity quilt for a little practice before popping Hugs in. I think I need to get some plexiglass first, too, and draw out the quilting idea in my mind and see if it really looks like I think it will on that top. 

I even already cut out the binding.

And, finally, my Ginghers are getting little workouts when I use the BOM of the moment to take a break from my main focus:

And a big "Thank you!" to Lee at Freshly Pieced for hosting WIP Wednesdays it really keeps me motivated to keep those UFOs going! (Go check out what everyone else is doing - there are some really neat projects out there!)
