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 - Birds and Dots


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)

Hello!  This week I hit my Temperature Dots Quilt nice and heavy.  I basted all the dots I'd had cut out, and got them glue-basted onto their backgrounds (about 8 weeks' worth). Waiting to be stitched, though.

And I spent 3-1/2 hours today pulling temps and cutting out the past 7 weeks of dots . . .  So I got maybe a third of the work finished to catch this monthly project up to date. 

I have exactly 3 high-temps dots left of this color, and haven't had luck finding any more of it to buy - so I sure hope we don't have more than 3 more 51-54 degree highs this year. 

I got another temperature color stitched down on the bird wings, which released two more rows to the TV station for paper removal and tail tuckings . . . 

. . . where I get "help" from Isabeau . . .  (Yeah - all those little pieces stick to her fur and track all over the place, but apparently my lap-side trash bag is the greatest place in the whole house to sit in.)

And there hasn't been much TV this week, so I've only worked through two sets so far. 29 more to go. . . 

I won't start sewing them together until I finish stitching all the wings down. Too lazy to change out the machine back and forth.  Heh!


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

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 

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

  1. I like your bird temp quilt. I wondered if you used a pattern from someone for the birds or if you drew them yourself?

  2. Your temp quilt is going to be so lovely. I'm assuming it's for the current year. Happy stitching!

  3. Your birds and circles are both in coming along so nicely!
