Free Motion Mavericks - Week 163 - Planning a Camera Cosy

Only four and a half years half in the cupboard, and finally I have decided how to use this free motion quilting sample.  The design looks fearfully clever, until you look at the back and find I was following a printed pattern.

My husband has bought me a brand new camera, a slightly belated 30th anniversary present.  After a few years of use and abuse (in particular, not keeping it in a case) my old camera is getting all slow and temperamental, so I now have the updated model.  I have been trying it out and found it is much better at indoor shots in poor light (hooray!), and it did the honours and took this photo of the old camera.  Quite how I am going to shape the quilted case remains to be seen.  I anticipate a bit of a tussle.

Here goes for Week 163.

The project that caught my eye in Week 162 was Andrée's wholecloth 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. I really like how the quilting looks on your camera cozy. I think following the design on fabric is such a relaxing way to FMQ. And it always looks pretty on the "plain" side.

  2. Hi Muv, thanks for showcasing my wholecloth. Congrats on the new camera and good luck with the case :-)
