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 - Lotsa Goodness


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)

Boy, I was able to square away a lot of BOM work this weekend!

First, here's my finished Sonata Star for the center of my Harmony BOM quilt:

I still need to trim the outer edges, but Scott was using my cutting table today.

Then, I got the month 5 sewing finished for the Neptune BOM:

(top portion made and attached to the 16 wedges)

I got two months of Temperature dots turned and glued onto their backgrounds:

(Marissa's wedding last month supplanted this work, so I had double this time)

And finally, I stitched down quite a few bird bodies for Heather & Pat's quilt, getting through the first four thread colors on the bricks I've fused so far. 

I've fused half of the bricks needed for the quilt. I left the wings for after I've stitched the bodies, so that I don't need to secure my starts and stops. I personally hate "invisible" thread for applique work, so to me the effect I get with different threads is worth the change-over - especially in a situation like this.  

Plus, we went to the movie theater again this weekend!

I'm looking at this page thinking, "How the heck did I get so much done??"

I'll take it!

Particularly since I'm feeling bogged down with the work on my longarm and piecing priority projects. They're each SO INTENSE and never-ending, it was very nice to put them to rest Friday evening and look at completely different things all weekend.


Have you worked on any BOM type projects recently? We'd love to see your progress!
