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

Flimsy Alert! ~ Tuscany Terrace

"Tuscany Terrace" by Marianne Elizabeth

Whew! There were days this month when I really thought I would *not* be getting this quilt top all sewn together before putting the project away again for who-knows-how-long - but here she is!

This was my April UFO on my piecing list for the American Patchwork & Quilting UFO Challenge. I populated my list with a combination of the current projects that were unfinished at the new year, a couple of UFOs that I really want to use on my bed, and then a bunch of old UFOs from my spreadsheet. 

Tuscany Terrace is one of the older ones - I bought the kit sometime between Jan 2010 and Oct 2011, and it sat in my NETY storage until I washed the fabrics and kitted it up in June 2013. 

Poor thing sat, all cut out, in a box ever since then, but it sure was fun to unpack that box to everything all cut out and labeled, with notes on the pattern regarding all my choices! 

It took many, MANY hours this month to piece it. I had a sweet visitor come near the front window to see what I was doing while I was pinning the last borders on yesterday. She was not sure at all what to think of Navarre watching her.  

But now it's a gigantic Flimsy, matching sham tops, and 12 yards of binding, all tidied away in my longarm room. 

I don't know if I'll get it quilted this year - my longarm queue is already on the long side, and I can't work much at all on it until this vertigo stuff gets better controlled. But she'll be so pretty as my Oct - Nov quilt when I do get her quilted!

  2. Wow....It's really a lovely quilt. Congrats. Also love your kitty and her friend...grin.

  3. That is one huge and striking quilt! Quiltdivajulie

  4. It is beautiful as is your home. I have started cutting out projects when I purchase them so they can be ready to sew when I get to them just like you. It makes it so nice.
    I checked out your Facebook BOM group and joined. I am unclear as to whether I fit there or not. I don't really do many blocks of the month unless it is one I create for myself from the PHD challenge or American Patchwork and Quilting Challenge to finish up UFOs.

  5. I stumbled upon your post about the Tuscany Terrace quilt flimsy alert, and I must say, your creativity and attention to detail truly shine through.
