Free Motion Mavericks - Week 132 - Nearly There

Six panels finished and the seventh almost done.  This is a project that has to be finished within the next three weeks or so.  I can't tell you how fed up I am of staring at the same colour all the time, especially when I am losing valuable gardening time.  Serves me right for setting myself the task.

Enough moaning.  Let's see what everyone else has been up to...

Here goes for Week 132..

The project that caught my eye in Week 131 was Olena's dancing goddess in the colours of the aurora borealis.  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. Your project looks great. I'm still in awe of your ability to treadle such beauty!!

    1. Thanks Donna. It's the next bit that's making me nervous.

  2. Hi Muv, I understand about working on a project with only one colour. Hopefully it will turn out as beautifully as you hoped!

  3. Your panels are marvelous. I, too, was in awe of that goddess. Makes my FMQ look like kindergarten work.

  4. Olena's quilt is amazing - my jaw actually dropped. :)
