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 - Flimsy Report: Classic Nutcrackers!! ~and~ Marissa's Kaffe Fassett Dahlia


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.)

Wahoo!!~! 

I did the last bit of hand work on a couple fellas 


(broom and ladder overlap. . .gold watch chain stitching)

and. . . BAM!!


My Classic Nutcrackers (by Sue Garman) is now a quilt top! 
Can you believe it?? I'm so excited. :) I love this quilt so much.

This is 55 x 66 inches. The pattern includes pieced blocks intended as an option for more border work, but I want this as a wall quilt, and it would be too large that way.

I am so very excited to reach this stage. I've been working on these guys since January 2019. They sure did make for some nice slow-stitching time in the evenings. It's all done using the back-basting needle-turn applique technique, all stitched by hand. 

So! With that much work in this baby, I'll be sharing it at the next TGIFF link-up.  :)  

- Also - 

I never did share the finished top of Marissa's Kaffe Fasset Dinner Plate Dahlia (Judy Niemeyer pattern)!  It's been done for about 2-1/2 weeks, waiting for someone to be around to hold it up during good-enough lighting. This is 80 x 80 inches.


She really likes it, and when it's closer to its turn at the longarm, we'll go shopping together to find what she wants for the backing. First, though, I have to quilt Heather's Graduation Dahlia, my Nutcrackers, and Devon's Mandalla Dahlia.

Have you worked on your BOMs lately?

  6. Home users looking to save money with a DIY haircut. Barbers starting their profession in pursuit of mastering their art and bringing smiles to their clients.

    What unites these two groups are hair clippers. Learning to cut your own hair – or shaping another person’s locks, is a skill.

    And new skills mean self-improvement. Other people respecting you more. Satisfaction.
