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

Announcing "18 in 2018"

Multi-purpose post here. Firstly, I hope your holiday is going nicely!
Secondly, we're continuing this challenge again this year. Note that you can break the number among however few or many quilts you want.
And thirdly, I did zero BOM work this week with family here, so last week's BOMs Away link is still active if you have something to share.  :)  

It's official! With Meredithe's blessing, we'll be hosting "18 in 2018" here, so those of us who thrived on the 17 in 2017 can keep the push going. She and Anne have switched to 6 & 6 in 2018 for those who want to challenge themselves to old and new alike.  :)

Check out the 18 in 2018 organizing page for details and info on how to make that number work for you. You can link up your own listing post here or on that page.

[The challenge is not to finish 18 UFOS (unless you want to), 
but to do the work for 18 stages divided among however many quilts you designate.]

I hope you'll play and help spread the word. I'll be putting a button up in the sidebar that folks can grab.

Let's have another great year of advances!

18 in 2018 Working Posts 
(This link-up will stay open all year. It is where you link your initial listing post, and you can do that at any point in the year.)


  1. I have been trying to get back into blogging and am getting fired up about my UFOs and quilting again.... I am interested in this challenge and getting some of my projects progressed in 2018!

  2. Yay! I will be impressed if I finish 18 UFOs, but I can at least try, right? Even opening the box and seeing what's in them is a step forward. LOL

    1. Haha! That's the spirit, Kate. Don't forget, though, that you don't have to finish them - you just need to get it to the next stage. Unless you set that complete-finish task for yourself. :)

    2. Ha ha. I can relate to that!

    3. Sadly, so many of mine are at the "just assemble the blocks and/or borders and finish the darn thing!" stage. Which means I could be very successful at finishes if I follow through!

  3. I've made a list of 10 projects but I'm not joining any of the official groups. I'll keep working at a project until it is a flimsy and then go onto the next quilt. This is a great idea, good luck with your 18 projects.

  4. Thanks SEW SEW much for doing this! I was looking very forward to it. I think I will also join the 6 & 6 because I want to start some things too. I am looking so forward to this sewing year!

    I will add your link to my sidebar. It is pretty cute.

  5. Here we go again! LOL. I'm so impressed with your great number of finishes, Lynn.

  6. Ok Lynette. I visited Cindy's block from a link above and discovered that you and I have once again fallen in love with the same pattern. Ruffled Roses has been on dream list since it came out. I have the pattern all printed and everything. I know I am going to want to do it when I see you quilting yours.
