Free Motion Mavericks - Week 134 - The Jacket is Taking Shape

Coming together at last...  The quilted jacket, which I sincerely hope doesn't end up looking like some sort of luxury anorak, only needs a few more things to be done; buttons and buttonholes, hems on the sleeves, and lining.  So still a few hours' work ahead of me, but I am definitely on the home stretch.

Here goes for Week 134..

The project that caught my eye in Week 133 was Mel's mini quilt with 3D cotton reels.  If you haven't seen her blog post yet, nip over now and have a closer look.

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, Ireland and Brazil have taken part.  The first participant from each new country will get a special mention the following week.


  1. Hi Muv
    No hint of the anorak about this garment. From what I can see I am thinking sophisticated, 1930s inspired, evening wear - very glamorous.

    1. Thanks Gavin.

      You know what it's like when you just wish you had finished it a fortnight ago.

      Love, Muv

  2. Hi Muv! Your jacket is lovely! Not a hint of anorak, but definitely luxurious. What will you wear with it?
    ❤️Donna B.

    1. Thanks Donna!

      There is an almost-finished skirt to match. I'm having a serious fight with the jacket lining today.

      Love, Muv
