Quilt ADD in therapy

Colorado, United States
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 - Red Bear & Wind in the Whiskers

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 can't believe it's already time to post BOMs Away. I also can't believe how insane I am. My first "Ooo! Shiny!" for 2018 has popped up, and I've made the January red bear for Dione's 2018 Beary Colorful BOM, coordinated with Jen Shaffer's Monthly Color Challenge.

I'm doing these quilt-as-you-go style. Everything came from my scraps, and yardage from stash for the backing. I'm using a light gray minky for the tummies and muzzles. Love it! I fused it the same way I do normal cotton, except for using a pressing cloth over it. Not sure exactly what size I want to cut these to, either (probably 12x15 in.), so this won't get trimmed until a few more are made.

I also worked a lot on Wind in the Whiskers this weekend. Got these three critters made. . .

. . .and a ton of blossoms, flowers, leaves, etc., traced and cut out. The rest of the remaining 24 little frilly center pieces can wait, though. I'm sick of tiny cutting right now!  :)

How about you? Did you get any BOM work done recently?

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.


  1. Your red bear is adorable! I just love the fabrics. Any child will really love the minky on it too.
    You have accomplished SO SO SO MUCH this past week! Holy cow you are on a roll! You are going to get those goals/UFOs all done this year if you can keep up the pace.

  2. Great job on the kitties. You go, Girl.

  3. Oh my!! That was a lot of fussy cutting to finish those three guys! But they are adorable! So many challenges for the year that I am seeing in blog world. I think I am going to stick with my UFOs and BOMs though. :)

  4. Your Sapphire Stars just keeps getting better and better. I love how you are quilting the sections. I don't know how you get so many things done each day. I'm having trouble keeping up with your posts and I know it it takes you longer to actually do the sewing than me just to read posts. lol You won't have any UFOs for much longer at this rate.!!

  5. I have never done BOMs, maybe when I retire ... but I am doing this color challenge and in the meantime it has prompted me to make more blocks for future quilts.
