Quilt ADD in therapy

Colorado, United States
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 - Water Reflections


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)

So, I did get some sewing machine BOM work done, finally! I had done almost half of the work on these blocks for the Month 5 sewing of my Water Reflections BOM. These are all 3" finished blocks.

The navy speckle fabric provided in the kit ran out before the little squares did, so I had to sneak in 5 of them from something in my stash that approximates the look. Looking at this photo, I'm thinking that was successful enough for my happiness. 

Month 5 actually is the entire central "medallion" portion of the quilt so there's quite a bit more sewing to happen for this part of the BOM.

Between this work and the bits of cleaning I've been doing, I am supremely worn out. So I believe I'm going to watch a show right now and then take a real l-o-n-g nap (which may just turn into down for the night even thought that'll be 1:30 in the afternoon). Covid recovery when you have Lupus is a frustratingly long process!

Yep, dude, I feel you. . . 


Have you been able to do any BOM type work lately? We'd love to see it.  :)

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. I can’t tell where you had to use fabric from your stash. Those blocks are so tiny! I guess you’ve improved a bit if you’re at your machine and doing some housework. So glad to hear it.


  2. The little stars look good, I can't tell either where the stash fabric was substituted. I'm glad you're feeling better but just don't overdo. Recovery takes awhile. Have a quiet peaceful Thanksgiving, happy stitching!

  3. Still no BOM sewing here. Those days are over for me, and I've caught up on my UFOs. But I'm glad to see you still moving forward on yours, albeit slower than you did pre-COVID. I'm very sorry to hear you're still struggling, but it sounds like you're doing the right thing... allowing yourself naps and rest time. Your polar bear picture is perfect!
