There are tea pots, jam pots and tea cups in the dark frame around the centre...
... and the beige and greys in the paler frames are livened up with pieces of a very subdued floral print.
For some reason the combination of prints was difficult to quilt. I kept losing track of where I had been when doing the meandering, in particular on the red, cream and blue border print.
Strawberries made an appearance in the binding...
... and the backing features the twelve days of Christmas, so there are plenty of little pictures for a baby to inspect.
Meanwhile, there has been progress with the free motion landscape, which now has a big red orb in the sky, which I stitched before I saw...
Here goes for week 63..
Many thanks to everyone who linked up last week to show their free motion quilting projects.
The pictures in Week 62 that really caught my eye were these ankle boots by Maartje. I have been following her paper piecing patterns coming together and was looking forward to seeing how they would look once free motion quilted. If you haven't seen her blog post yet, nip over now and see more photos.
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.
