Free Motion Mavericks - Week 87 - Not Much Done...


Only a little bit of quilting has gone on this week.  This panel measures just over 17 x 26 inches, and provided I don't mess up the cutting, it should soon be transformed into two tea cosies.  We shall see.

I am hoping that there are plenty of industrious ladies out there who have got some sewing done over Easter and can put me to shame this week.

Here goes for week 87...
The project in Week 86 that really caught my eye was Karen's metro rings quilt - here is the quilting as seen on the back. 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, Macau and Russia have taken part.  The first participant from each new country will get a special mention the following week.

  1. What many probably don't realize is that Karen quilts on her trusty old Bernina 165. I've been at retreats with her and watched her FMQ, and I am in awe of her talent. I keep hoping if I sit close enough, some of her talent and artistry will rub off on me!!!!
