Free Motion Mavericks - Week 107 - Bit by Bit...

Still working on attaching the sample pieces, using my favourite Quilt As You Go method.  I am testing a slight change in the method, but need to attach a few more pieces before I can be sure it is consistently better. 

This latest piece I have joined has got a few artistic tucks.  Not ideal, but I'm not going to fret over them.  Sewing has had to take a slide down my list of priorities over the summer, but I am hoping to get back into the groove over the next month or so.

Here goes for week 107...

The project in Week 106 that caught my eye was Janice's shadow block mini quilt - full of loads of things that went wrong and even more that went right.  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, Russia and Ireland have taken part.  The first participant from each new country will get a special mention the following week.


  1. Your progress photos are so teasing, hope you'll be sharing the result soon! Thanks for the link to your quilt-as-you-go tutorial. I'm collecting blocks so I could try it soon.

  2. Finished this butterfly quilt. I know it is the same than last week but now it is finished :)
