It's a boring yet fascinating process.
The annual 12 x 12 exhibition at Midsomer Quilting is at the beginning of December, but for some reason I had it my head that it was next spring. A couple of weeks ago I realised it was coming up soon, and it wasn't until last weekend that I decided that if I got a move on I could make a quilt (or very possibly two) in time for the show.
So I am in parallel lines mode...
...stitching sea, sky and rainbow, with a swirly cloud thrown in for good measure.
The theme of the show is mystery, myth and magic. Quite what I am going to do in the foreground is still a bit of a mystery to me. I shall have to do about five minutes' serious thinking tomorrow.
Here goes for week 112...
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.
