This is some quilting I did before we went away on holiday, combining leaves and berries. I wanted to see how the variegated yellow thread looked on the purple, and have decided I rather like it.
We have just got back from Poland...
... complete with a souvenir mug for our son, who stayed at home and held the fort.
It might take me a little while to get back into the FMQ groove, especially while I have a laundry backlog to catch up on and try to remember how to cook, so I am looking forward this week's link up.
So here goes for week 11...
Firstly, many thanks to Gwyned, Cynthia, Barbara, Claire and Diana for linking up last time - a great collection of projects.
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 bloggers from USA, England, Wales, Australia, Canada, Germany and Holland have taken part. The first participant from each new country will get a special mention the following week!
