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 Monday - Beachwalk is Moving Right Along Now!


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.)

Hey, hey! This quilt is getting close to a finish! 

I have only 1 and 2/3 panels left to quilt on the Beachwalk BOM, that was sitting as a UFO in my Flimsies Closet for a good eight years. I'm so glad it called to Devon for her wedding quilt!

I'm very happy to report that the final quilting is going So Much Easier than the trapunto work did. For one thing, all but a couple of pieces that had lifted off were stitched down during that first stage of the quilting, so, of course, this second stage is much simpler to attack just on that account. 


The longarm ball point needle - FFG - works wonderfully on the multiple fused layers, with no cutting of threads, and I haven't had any issues at all with the needle getting sticky and doing skipped stitches. Nor am I seeing any batting punched through on the back. I've used the size 18 for the Glides and Aurifils, and size 16 for the Microquilters. I do notice that the non-cotton threads work more smoothly with this fussy fusible that didn't like permeating the fabric which hadn't been prewashed.


How about you? Has any BOM type work been happening there?
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. Your quilting looks so nice, it's really bringing the quilt to life! Happy stitching!

  2. Oh yes, you must certainly be feeling great about finishing an eight year-old flimsy! Wow. I can't imagine. This pandemic incarceration has me feeling caught up on projects too, so now I'm sewing clothes and working on an embroidery piece, just for something to do! These are strange times, and I'm glad to see you making the best of them with your longarm.
