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 - Swan Song

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.)

Wow! What a productive week.

All the remaining section sets for Marissa's Dahlia were finished:

2/3 of the border sections for our king-sized Dahlia were finished:

And, this weekend I got the first three swan blocks sewn together:

Those three swans took SEVEN AND A HALF HOURS of work!
I do really love them, though. And I'm glad I don't have to give them attention again until October. . . heh!

It's official, also - I greatly prefer paper piecing to the multi-layered stitch-and-flip technique in these patterns. It's easier to be perfectly accurate, and also uses significantly less fabric.


Now your turn: How are your BOMs doing 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.

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

  1. You did have a productive week! Can't wait to see dahlia all sewn together. Those swans are so graceful. I also prefer the accuracy of paperpiecing. PP can be challenging to catch onto but once you do, there's no turning back. Have a wonderful week of stitching!

  2. Wow, those swans are amazing! Lynette you are talented to have them work out so perfectly. Happy Stitching!

  3. Those swans and that dahlia are all just stunning!! I don't even know what to say about them; my jaw is just hanging down and flopping around in amazement! LOVE LOVE LOVE!
