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 - Masks, Astrodelic, and Thistlepods

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.)

Another week where I did not get any BOM work done. . .

But I did finish the last set of 50 masks for the county first responders today!

And because I needed SOMETHING quilt-y to accomplish after so many days and days of nothing but masks, I put the borders on this top that I'd sewn up a few weeks ago.

This is "Astrodelic" as done by a shop in Estes Park. I totally loved it up on their wall and bought the kit.
That was something like 3 years ago. Heh!

Today it looks pretty crazy-busy to me, but I'm looking forward to seeing if it's something that once I get the quilting done speaks to me again. It's pretty cool when that happens, and it happens more often than not. 
Even if it still fails to float my boat when I do quilt it, my daughter thinks it's really pretty, so either way it'll be loved on.  :)

Oh!  and I also laid out the central blocks for my Thistlepods so I can get back into that project again with the new week!  This is the arrangement that Navarre approves:


Have you been able to work on a BOM? Sure would love to see.  :)

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. Wowo, your Thistlepods is beautiful!

  2. I imagine that many quilters will be doing some stash rebuilding after making all the masks. It is a blessing to bless others. Thanks for the linky opportunity.

  3. I took a break from mask making! I love all of your projects, that purple one is out of this world.

  4. Thistle Pods is so so stunning! I am glad you laid it out and shared it with us!

    I hope you are doing ok.

  5. I think Astrodelic and Thistlepods both look great. Can’t wait to see how you quilt all that fabulous negative space in Astrodelic; so much room for possibilities!
