Free Motion Mavericks - Week 139 - Using Up Offcuts

Every project produces scraps, and my Mother of the Groom outfit has left me with a pile of quilted offcuts.  Today I started putting a few together with the intention of making a cushion cover.

It is a bit of a brain teaser, because there are so many awkward shapes and so few straight lines.  This project might take a little longer than I anticipated.

Here goes for Week 139.

The project that caught my eye in Week 138 was Afton's Wonderland Quilt.  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.
