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 - a Weekend In


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)

I got a lot of sewing done on BOMs and such this weekend! We have a dramatic Covid spike in our area at the moment, so we decided we were just going to enjoy Home for the time being. 

This week's BOM was our Temperature Quilt.  All those dots from the last cutting session provided the final 5 for the last row I'd worked on assembling last month. . . 

And then made 4+ more rows!  

I cut out all the dots from Thanksgiving to the end of the year . . . 

And I prepped the documentation block for the bottom:

I always use the back-basting method for hand applique. For this block, I printed out my words in a font I liked, taped it upside down on my light box, and trace the outlines onto the back of my block's foundation. That's all the prep there is! The remainder is restful stitching during TV time.  

I used cutouts from the temperature blocks to prep the Key dots. 


Well, up to 65 degrees - after that I had to cut fresh dots out of the hotter colors. Our highest low was only 65 degrees. I never got to use my two hottest colors, as the highest high was only 95. 

And that pile of the other 350 cut-outs - I realized they would make excellent berries for some other project, so I put them in a baggie and stored them in my little Extra Applique Pieces drawer!  Future fun with those. 

While assembling my dots, I ran out of Stitch-Off pieces, so I prepped another round of those.

And I finished up the quilting of the large gray areas on my King size Dinner Plate Dahlia. . . After Navarre helped me figure out a template for my spines!

 This is my January longarming UFO focus, and I'm eager to get it onto the bed. 

A good bunch of work accomplished!  :)


Did you work on a BOM type project this week? We'd love to see your progress!
