Free Motion Mavericks - Week 178 - Reviving A Project

Easter is fast approaching and it will be time to concentrate on the family.  I am feeling fairly virtuous about the whole thing, having actually done some spring cleaning so the house looks reasonably presentable.  The days are longer, winter is probably over, and I am looking forward to spending some time digging to get my allotment ready for this year's vegetables. 

As for sewing, I am going to concentrate on quick projects, and while sorting out my sewing corner I came across these pieces I had set aside to make tea cosies.  So that means the two final cosies in these fabrics, and just enough, but not too much to keep me going over the Easter holidays.

Next week might be a bit busy, so there will be no linky, so this weekend will be the last until after Easter.

Here goes for Week 178.

The project in Week 177 that caught my eye was Yanicka's beautiful family tree 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.
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.
