Free Motion Mavericks - Week 119 - Christmas is Coming

Time to take a break from quilting and get into gear for Christmas...  Over the past week or so I have made five quilt sandwiches - four for the Secret Project, and one for a cot quilt.  Quilting, however, will have to wait for a while.  Both my children will be home from Ireland within the next few days and somehow I suspect life will soon be a whole lot noisier.  I'm not complaining.

This will be the last link-up before Christmas.  The next link up will be on the 5th January.

The quilt that caught my eye in Week 118 was Donnalee's Christmas 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.


  1. This is the perfect time to take a break Muv! Enjoy your family and have a wonderful Christmas. Happy Holidays!!

  2. Have a wonderful and Merry Christmas!
