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 - Harmony


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)

Bag 6 of my Harmony BOM is the Crescendo blocks.

They are four quite large applique blocks, and will take two or three more weekends to finish up, I'm sure. 

I really would like this to be hand stitched, but there are not enough years in my life to do everything that way, y'know? 

Bummer how slow the freezer paper prep is, but I wanted turned edge on this quilt instead of fusible. So I grit my teeth and do it. I'm such a whiner-baby about this method. Hah!

The leaves are stitched down, stems are not. I'll add the central stem before I stitch all of those in one approach, since they're all the same thread color. I'm using 100wt silk with teeny tiny blanket stitch nips. The stiches won't show much at all after it's quilted.


What BOM type project have you worked on recently? 

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’m with you on the hand stitching - it is my preferred method. I end up hand-piecing in front of the TV, but machine quilting.


  2. I am taking my first ever hand appliqué class in June - I love that you are combining the turned under edges with machine appliqué (despite the prep time). Must remember this as I have no idea how I'll like needleturn by hand (or how my arthritic thumb joint will respond).

  3. Oh, how I FEEL you with the painfully slow progress of hand stitched appliqué! My Frankenwhiggish Rose project seems like it will NEVER be finished. And it really never will, unless I start working on it again and make finishing it a priority! I think I'm going to have to try machine appliqué next time because there are just too many projects I want to make and like you said, not enough years to make half of them!

  4. This will be gorgeous but it does look like A LOT of work!

  5. You know, for me I feel like the fusible is slow. I know it is not as slow, but it takes awhile to trace, cut, press, fuse, then stitch if you think about it. I have come to truly love hand applique'.
