Free Motion Mavericks - Week 86 - Batik Around a Hundred Squares

Perhaps you might spot a slight similarity with the last cradle quilt I finished.  So many of the fabrics are the same, but it has been photographed in completely different light.

I was a bit worried that the green batik that I used for the border might be a bit wishy washy, but I think it looks all right in the end.

For the backing I used the woodland animals print.  The aqua/green background goes so well with this colour scheme.

Here goes for week 86...
The project in Week 85 that really caught my eye was Cynthia's gorgeous bold stars quilt.  I just love the effect of the red triangles!  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.

Linking up with Kelly's blog My Quilt Infatuation for Needle and Thread Thursday
and Sarah's blog Confessions of a Fabric Addict for Whoop Whoop Friday
and Amanda Jean's blog Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish It Up Friday.


  1. Thanks for the feature! The quilt is fast and easy to make. This week I am sharing a round quilt!

  2. Nice colours in your quilt and I really like the backing. No FMQ for me this week but I hope to give you a laugh with my latest attempts soon.
    Smiling and laughing
