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 - Surfer's Point, Dahlias, and Deer :)

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.)

This weekend I had fun pulling another quilt kit out to slip into my BOM rotation:

Surfer's Point, designed by Edyta Sitar

It's all washed, ironed, and cut out - ready to go. I hope to make two blocks per month. One day, it will grow up to be like this, 88x88 inches:

My weekday sewing was spent working on the assembly of Marissa's Dinner Plate Dahlia. . . 

. . . and working on more paper piecing for mine. I finished the last of the border sections:

It was a total deer week. We get both stags and doe herds of mule deer that like to rest on various knolls around our property - can you spot the four mature does resting on this one?

They also like to eat at various spots, like the bird feeder station . . .

and the elderberry bushes all over the place, including on the patio in the background of my sewing station shot up above.

Yesterday, this sweetheart's mother let her come right up to the patio door to check out what I was doing. Isn't she fantastic? Can you see her faint spots that haven't gone completely away yet?
I really *love* their visits!@


Now it's 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.

  1. It's good to see you continuing to plug away on your BOMs. I can't remember... have you ever said how many kits you have? I'm glad for you to enjoy them. And even happier that quiltmaking offers us so many options. I've never bought a kit in more than 40 years of making quilts. Love seeing what you're working on, and what your sewing room view is like. You're in a lovely place, and have great opportunities to be up close to nature. Keep having fun!

  2. Oh my goodness -- you are so blessed with all those furry visitors! I see them on the greenway sometimes when we're there riding our bikes early in the morning, but never so close up as the one that came to peer through your patio window! Your star quilt is going to be gorgeous and I'm looking forward to more glimpses of the Dahlia quilt as well. :-)
