Free Motion Mavericks Link Up - Week 16 - Stitching a Church
Today I started work on a landscape in the hope that I can make two near-identical pieces by the end of the month.
The focal point on the horizon is a church with a steeple.
The line of trees looks a bit messy and scribbly. I was glad to get started on the straight lines in the middle distance. It is much quicker work, and changing the thread to a different colour makes it more interesting.
So you can see just how quickly you can make progress, here is a little video. I am still testing camera angles - I think this is the best yet.
So here goes for week 16...
Firstly, many thanks to Maartje, Hilary and Gwyned for linking up last time - a great collection of projects.
If you love free motion quilting, whether you are a beginner just taking the plunge, or you have reached the stage where you can do ostrich feathers with your eyes shut and still achieve perfect symmetry, then please link up.
Remember, FMQ is FMQ, whether your machine was made last week, or it is older than your granny.
Here are the very easy and slightly elastic rules:-
1. Link up with any recent post, ideally from the last week but within the last month, which features a free motion quilting project, whether it is a work in progress or a finish.
2. Link back to this post in your own post and/or grab the linky button for your blog's sidebar.
3. Visit as many of the other participants as possible and say hello in the comments box.
4. The link up will remain open for four days, from midnight to midnight GMT for the long weekend, Friday to Monday.
So far bloggers from USA, England, Wales, Australia, Canada, Germany and Holland have taken part. The first participant from each new country will get a special mention the following week.
Welcome to Martha, the latest follower - thank you for joining!
