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 Monday - She Liiiiiives! It's a Revival :D

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.

It's been forever since I've posted anything. I apologize to those who have told me they've missed the BOMs Away link up. I've been OK - just inundated with some intense priority quilts that took every minute of my quilting time. Everything else has been on hold for the last few months. I also had a lot of physical health adjustments to work on (just upgrading my workout routines to increase my stamina against Lupus stuff), and we had some really cool family events, like the high school graduation of our youngest and a really fantastic vacation.

I have a lot of catching up to do here at the blog! I'll start small with the first reposting of BOMs Away, which will start the swing back into my regular routine. 

Working so hard on single intense quilts at a time really goes against my grain, and to reward myself for four solid months of that, I got myself the kit for Fancy Forest in the same fabrics Elizabeth Hartman used. It'll look like this:

I got everything washed and pressed, then I cut all the background and accent fabrics, and all the feature fabric strips. 

This'll be my backing:

Everything is carefully organized in baggies and boxed up so that once a week or so I can take a break from the current priority quilt and put together an animal set. It's quite possible that this is the only project I'll work on for my BOM spot over the next 6-8 weeks. Apologies for the boredom if no other variety pops up before August. ;D  

So, if anyone's still around, how about you? Do you have any BOM work to share?


  1. What a fab project to be working on in the background Lyn, I shall enjoy seeing your progress :)

  2. I've seen that pattern several times and absolutely love it! Looking forward to your shares :) Nice to see you blogging again, I've missed having a Monday Brag spot ;)

  3. It's good to hear from you again!

  4. Welcome back, I've been wondering where you were. That's a really cute project to start off with, I think we've all been a little busy and distracted.

  5. I'm so glad you are back and OK. I was wondering what happened.

  6. Good for you, so organized, I should live so long. Hope you are staying out of the high waters down there. Will enjoy your posts on the project. I love her patterns also.

  7. YAY! Welcome back, we have missed you!
    What a wonderful kit to reward yourself with, it looks so fun!

  8. Not working on any BOM per se, but it is SO good to have you back. That pattern will be such fun for you to work your way through.

  9. So good you are back. I was afraid it was a major health issue. I was praying for you. Sounds like you are terribly busy with fun and work and health too. That is a cute quilt you'll be working on. Lots of pieces.

  10. I am delighted to see you back blogging! Congratulations to you, your husband and daughter on the graduation. It's a big milestone for your family. I am looking forward to what you have to say about piecing this new project, as I also have the pattern.
