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 - Garden Friends

Welcome to the Link-Up for BOMs Away Mondays! 
We'd love to see the BOM you're working on lately. 
This week's link-up is at the bottom of the post.

I pulled the 7 blocks for Garden Friends down off the inspiration wall so I could start the stitch-down process on their fused applique. Took a fair bit of time to carefully cut away the background fabric behind the pieces first.

I did the stitching for the blacks and the greens, which comprises the largest bulk of the work. I'd hoped to finish all of it when I was considering my BOM work yesterday, but as today turned out, I ended up spending more time with family, so I wasn't able to. Which is how it should be.  :)

Did you get any work done on your BOMs this week?


  1. Your right family does come first. Which is why I don't always get much done but that is okay. Your blocks look great.

  2. A couple questions on your applique: Do you use a stabilizer on the back of your fabric squares? Do you cut the blocks larger than indicated to allow for the fabric to "gather up" when stitching? Thanks.

  3. These are such cute blocks, I particularly love the beehive. That will be some fine machine applique going around the little bees! I hope all's well.

  4. Hi Lynette, are you using a blanket stitch to stitch down the fusible pieces? Thanks! The blocks are really cute! ~Melanie

  5. Oh, another awesome project Lyn - those blocks look really sweet! No BOM work for me this week, I worked up some heart blocks instead. Thank you for hosting!

  6. good idea to do all the same color applique on each block. I did that when I was working on my Bertie's Year BOM.
