This month, because it is July, it is time to celebrate a few birthdays (mine, my husband's, a brand new great nephew), and a couple I missed in June (the blog's third, the linky's first). Everyone who links up during July will be entered into the give away. The more times you link up, the more entries you will get.
What are the rules? Just link up, following the usual rules for the linky. There is just one thing I have to mention - any links that don't have anything to do with free motion quilting don't qualify.
The prize? It is either one of the two landscape quilts that I have been making over the past few weeks...
... so the winner chooses between this one or the one I showed last week.
The wonders of ever changing light. The two little quilts were photographed on different days, so the colours look different, but in real life they are exactly the same.
Any suggestions for a title for this quilt, anyone? Whoever ends up winning the give away can decide what title to give the quilt they choose, but in the meantime suggestions are welcome!
Here goes for week 54...
Many thanks to Gina, Super Mom, Julie, Gwyned, Angie, Maartje, Beth and Dena for linking up last week to show their free motion quilting 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 quilters from the USA, England, Wales, Australia, Canada, Germany, Holland, New Zealand, France and Macau have taken part. The first participant from each new country will get a special mention the following week.
