Free Motion Mavericks - Week 83 - Still Under Wraps

Extremely boring photo, I know, but some quilts have to stay hidden from view until they have been received by the person for whom they were made.  All shall be revealed soon enough, but I can safely tell you today that it is well and truly finished, it measures 60 x 77 inches, and it is made totally from the stash - and that includes the wadding and backing.  All I needed to buy was an extra couple of reels of thread.  Job done.  Phew.

Here goes for week 83...
The project in Week 82 that really caught my eye was Janine's gorgeous random quilt, where she bravely shut her eyes and arranged the colours as she pulled them out from the pile, then quilted it within two days on her treadle.  Fabulous work!  If you haven't seen her blog post yet, nip over now and see more photos.


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



  1. Ooh! Just a tease this week I see. Can't wait for the big reveal! And congratulations on pulling just from your stash. That's the way to do it!
