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

UFO organization for 17 in 2017

This is just a listing of 17 UFOs I intend to significantly advance this year. Thought I'd harness the motivation power of Meridithe's "17 in 2017" linky party.

I like her approach - the essence of this push is not having to completely finish 17 quilts this year (a crazy goal if you focus on large, complex quilts), but it's the goal of moving things forward at least one significant step.

You can see that I keep notes of the next stage for myself on each item. A partially-struck name means the project has reached the full flimsy point and is at the quilting part of the process.

I hope to reach at least 12 complete finishes this year.

1. Scott's Retirement Quilt (finish quilting)  Get completely finished

2.  Leaded Glass (quilting)  Quilt the colored part

3. Lori and Aliya (work up quilting stencils  Get completely finished

4. Devon's Quilt (finish quilting)  Get completely finished

5. Plums in November (finish quilting)  Get completely finished

6. Sew Spooky (finish quilting)  Get completely finished

7. Frog Lily for Marissa (in blocks)  Get the top assembled

17. Mermaid Fantasy for Heather (apply trapunto)   Get completely finished


  1. I am assuming the ones you have crossed through are the ones you have completed? If so, you are on a roll! Git'R'Done!

  2. Love the variety of designs AND colors that you have waiting on deck . . . happy stitching!

  3. These are great! Gettin' 'em finished! I especially love your stained glass quilt. I'll look for more details...

  4. These quilts you posted are all so wonderful. I couldn't help but look at them over and over again! You are not into simple, are you?

    I love that you finished Americana. I also love that you put the star border all the way around in contrast to my half/half sars and stripes. It is so striking! In my opinion, a pieced border can make all the difference on a quilt.

    Leaded glass is so gorgeous that I may just have to make one this year. It is now on my wish list!

    I love your "Plums". Those braided quilts are just so stunning no matter what fabric selections I have seen online. They are also fun and easy to make.

    I have had my eye on the "spooky" quilt pattern for years. It just talks to me wanting me to make it. I am sure I will some day.

    Listen with your eyes looks amazing! I can't wait to see it come together. It is a mystery to me for now.

    I am also loving your Beach Walk and Garden Friends quilts. The beach is not really me because I don't live by the ocean and have only visited it a few times, but those Garden friends are begging me to make them! I have seen a couple of these running around the internet and have fallen in love.

    If we lived close together, we would have to be sewing friends because we like the same things!

  5. Great list, Lyn!! Looking forward to seeing progress on these!
