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

BOMs Away - Nutcrackers: The Mouse King

Welcome to the link-up for BOMs Away Mondays!
Where we share what we're doing on a BOM-type project 
so they don't stall out in UFO-land!
(Linky at the bottom.)

For those of you in the U.S., I hope you had a nice Father's Day yesterday. I was wrapped up in fostering Scott's spotlight for that and totally forgot to post BOMs Away at the normal time!

I got about halfway finished with the star border on my "Star Crazy" (no pics yet), but my share this week is block 3 for my "Classic Nutcrackers".

The Mouse King has all his applique now! 

These guys are moving quickly through my evening stitch times, and while I feel a little guilty that my other hand-applique projects are being neglected, I'm taking advantage of the momentum that's rolling for this one - I may just have #4 finished to share next week! Saturday I spent a couple hours going through my scrap bins and stash to pull fabrics for the next 4 nutcrackers so I have the option to keep riding the wave or shift back to another handwork BOM when the fourth nutcracker is finished.

Have you done any BOM work lately?


Kate over at Katie Mae Quilts has joined me in hosting this meet-up,
and linking up from either end puts you on the party at both sides.


  1. The nutcracker looks very nice. You've done a good job with the applique.

  2. Beautiful appliqué on your nutcracker!
