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

November Goal Post

http://apassionforapplique.blogspot.com/2013/11/nothing-but-ufos-for-november.html Time for the magical progress-making guidance list for the new month!

My Button

[Don't forget, I over-pack mine on purpose with small identifiable steps, so this is not as overwhelming as it seems.]

Never Too Hot To Stitch!

UFOs -
  • Koo Koo Puff - Gets first dibs on the finishing goal this time around. He needs all his topstitching and thread painting, then to be quilted (I think I want to trapunto him), and then he'll be mounted on his art frame. Good thing he's little!

  • Kelly's 1930s - Finish the last of the hand quilting! Only about 1 square yard's worth of straight lines in the wide border.  I'm not going to kid myself into thinking I can also finish the scalloped binding by month's end, but maybe I can get a start on it. . .

  • A Barbeque with the Squadron - Let's get the backing made and pin-baste this sucker so we can get another large UFO shot down by year's end.  :)

WIPs/NewFOs -
  • 25th, Baby! - Try not to cry again. Aim for finishing 70 rings - it's almost time to work in those longer joining seams. Just think: So far you've finished enough for a double size quilt!

  • Rainbow Jane - Figure out the new quilting for the triangles and put in the guidelines.

  • NewFO - There is definitely one last quilting box somewhere that I haven't unpacked from the move. Really hoping it's just tucked somewhere behind stuff and not actually lost! But this is the second NETY that's come up missing, and I remember exactly where these were in the old house in Florida - on the same case, too. Sooooo - the work I REALLY wanted to do on That Bad Boy has to wait for yet another Veteran's Day.  Instead, I've dug out an untouched kit with roughly Thanksgiving colors. It will be fun to try out the French braid style.

  • Kelly's Heritage - Finish assembling these two tops!
  • Hello Moon  - Stay on schedule
  • Ruffled Roses - Finish cornerstone 4. Attach all the border sections and applique the roses that overlap the seams.
  • Open Slot - Choose one to pull into Selvages' vacated slot! Maybe Fall All Around or Garden Friends. . . or My Renaissance. . .

COMMUNITY SEWING -  Make a wheel-chair quilt kit's blocks.


FMQ Station - Koo Koo Puff, then BBQ
Piecing Station - 25th, Baby!; after daily quota, go to wheel chair blocks, then French Braid
Hand Station - Kelly's 1930s, then Ruffled Roses


  1. Good luck in November! It's always great to start a new month of possibilities.

  2. I need to do what you are doing. Making lists to get projects finished. I'm all scatter brained with projects to the point I don't know what to do. Deep breath, write it down, get something done!

  3. Besides getting yourself organized it is nice to see what we have to look forward to seeing on your blog...I'm anxious to see the French Braid quilt.

  4. I love how you've got a ton on your list! I do the same. I think I'm going to steal your format and your "stations" when I do my next goal list. I've also got multiple things going in each "station" and my head gets mumbled with trying to keep them all together. I've already got my list but I like having each project in a "station". Thanks for the ideas! ~Melanie at 1000Needles.com

  5. I'm a list person too. Love that french braid - lovely fabrics for that project.

  6. Yo have lots on the go, but then, if you have a plan to work on these you are much more likely to actually complete your work. The French Braid quilts look interesting.

  7. Love this Lyn ! Now to get my head above water long enough to make my list... Your post is very encouraging! Karen on Keuka

  8. Can't wait to see the puffer fish done in trapunto.
    I have made a braid quilt several years ago. My daughter has it.

  9. Lord have mercy! I am tired just reading all of this! When are you going to find the time to work on it all???? Wonder Woman?
