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 - Two Flimsies!


BOMs Away - Heather & Pat's documentation panels and some Affairs of the Heart


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 put my hustle on this weekend and scored TWO flimsies in my BOM projects!

Saturday I wrapped up Heather & Pat's love birds Temperature Quilt top:

It is 96.5 x 106 inches, and I have some fancy-pants quilting planned for it. There are 3 quilts ahead of it at my longarm, though.

Sunday I put the last borders onto my Neptune's Gift:

This is 86 inches square, and I have no idea when it will get a turn on the longarm. Hopefully not too long from now, because it's amazing. 

Interestingly, my stitch-off project, Feathered Goose, also wrapped up this weekend! In fact, there were exactly as many units left to stitch a seam on as I had rounds of sewing on those two BOM tops. Kinda fun, actually!  This goes onto my domestic machine priority list to put the top together when I sew during the work week. It was very much a Happy Dance weekend!

(Except, now I have to prep whatever will be my next stitch-off project - but, boy are there plenty untouched kits in the storage room to choose from . . . )

I've organized the next BOM that I'm going to pull into my rotation since two are now off my list. Here are my colors (selected from left-overs from my Rainbow Dear Jane BOM from years ago) for Cadence Court, by Sassafras Lane:

I had almost everything I need in my stash, but I do need to pick up a couple yards of assorted blacks to augment my background and binding yardage. 


I have an announcement to make regarding BOMs Away Mondays. 

Subscription prices keep going up everywhere, including the one for having linky parties on your blog. After April, BOMs Away will no longer be held in this format. Instead, it is moving to a Facebook group! 

Kate and I will continue posting linky parties here each week for one more month, but you can also already access the new location:

The group is set up as a private group, meaning only members will see your posts there, and we will be screening requests to join the group so that spammers won't get in and drive us all nuts. One great thing about this move is that we can post progress any time we want, and you won't be left hanging if we've gone on vacation and forgot to set up an auto post with a linky party for you.

We hope to see you over there. I know I would not get a tenth the amount of BOM work done that I do without having this little "association" to post to. 


Did you work on a BOM type project this week? 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. Lynette, your Love Birds and Neptune's Gift are both amazing!! I cannot wait to see how you will quilt them, but I certainly can relate to having other quilts ahead in the lineup. I'm sad that BOMs Away Monday linky party is going away, too. It's too bad there isn't a free option for this service.
