Quilt ADD in therapy

Other than my family, the passion of my life is quilting. An eclectic, I love any and every style that makes me smile. Traditional? Awesome, especially with historic or family story connections. Modern? Fun! Free! Cheery! Paper piecing? How cool can you get?

BOMs Away - and What a Bombshell! :)



Welcome to the Link-Up for BOMs Away Mondays!
 
We'd love to see the BOM you're working on lately.
This week's link-up is at the bottom of the post.
 
Oh, my goodness! Have I got some news - and this is about the only place I can share it yet.

Remember this favorite shot of mine from Hanmadang last month?  Well, these two are officially engaged now! 


 
 
They're quite young, but they're both keepers, so I'm thinking they've got as good a shot at it as many others who are five years older. I know that I, for one, am thrilled with the thought of this young man joining our family. They've got a good plan in place, and since they're not rushing for a wedding in two months, we've got time to put together a really nice deal for perfect timing to include his father, who's on long-term remote assignment in Korea (Air Force).  And time to make a wedding quilt!!! 
 
Speaking of quilting, this is for Kate, who's antsy to see my double wedding ring. It's not BOM work, but it's my never-ending 25th anniversary quilt for Scott and I.
 
 
 
 
I expect there's still about 65 more hours of detail quilting to be done. Somehow, I am *going* to have this finished for our bed in late August!
 

 
 
 
And here's the BOM work I did today. The buttons I ordered last week for the rest of Kelly's quilt haven't arrived yet, so I bumped "Ruffled Roses" up a week. 
Four baskets and three more swag units:

What BOM work have you squared away lately?  :D

  7. Oh, congratulations to you! This is your first to become engaged, right? Such a fun time, making plans... and making a quilt! You'll have a great time. Love the quilting I'm seeing on your anniversary quilt. Wish we could set up together to quilt side-by-side. I need encouragement... and I'm guessing you do too, sometimes. I hope life is treating you well.
