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 - Allietare, a Kitty, and a Surprise

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'm far from being back on track with my usual work load, but I got a ton of work finished on my Allietare.

I finished Clues 2, 3, and 4, and got a bit started on Clue 5. I really love that I have something like 600 bonus little HSTs from all the dog-ears I double-seamed for the decapitated flying geese units. Those are going to be super fun to play with some time.

When Bonnie let the clues out, I got 1-3 cut with only one patch sewn from 2 and 3. Everything else fell by the wayside until after the holidays, our cruise, and being sick. But now I'm on track for having this quilt top all put together by month's end if not a week from now. That makes me happy.

I would have finished more of 5 today if somebody warm and furry and super sweet hadn't decided to suddenly start being a lap cat while I was pinning sub-patches together. We've been trying to convince him to be more cuddly for ages, so I had to watch a movie instead of returning immediately to my machine. 

And one more thing to share. Check it out! A couple of weeks ago, I was named Student of the Month at Taekwondo!  :D  That actually means a lot to me, because there are tons of people, and this was only the second month this has been given out. 

Have you worked on and BOMs or similar projects lately? We'd love to see your progress or plans.  :)


  1. Sorry to hear you've been sick, Lyn. Hope you are better soon. I've been convalescing too. What a fun time you had. Your family really knows how to party. I'm way behind on most things also, but am learning to rest and be patient.

  2. awww! kitty cuddles...too cute! great job on the mystery quilt! and the tae kwon do certificate...you go girl!

  3. Congrats on the Student of the Month, that's wonderful! So nice that someone has decided to be a lap cat, maybe he's just grown up enough to appreciate the finer things in life.

  4. Congratulations!!! And kudos for knowing that kitty cuddles are more important than seam stitching ...

  5. Congrats!! That's a huge deal! and I love the colors for your mystery quilt. I can't wait to see it put together. Great job!

  6. Good job kickin booty in Tae Kwon do!

    Cant wait to see your Allietare come together!

  7. Congratulations "Student of the Month"! I am curious to know what Taekwondo is though.

    I am trying to get myself off the computer and energetic enough to make a post for your linky party. Thanks for sharing it weekly with us.
