Free Motion Mavericks - Week 167 - Chaos Reigns

Easy to let things slide.  This is the state of my sewing room today. Just before Christmas I abandoned all thoughts of sewing and have only just recovered the inclination start quilting again.  There is a bit of tidying up to do first, as you can see.  Somehow I haven't got round to it yet.  I am far too easily distracted, for example by grapefruits when out shopping, so as a result this afternoon I have been preparing grapefruits for marmalade.  Anything but tidy up.

After a quiet Christmas with just three of us at home (just as well, I was ill the week before) and a fun packed New Year at my brother's house (for his wedding anniversary on the 29th and birthday on New Year's Eve) I am making plans for lots of projects this year.

So it's Happy New Year to everyone, and just in case anyone has any sewing to show, the linky is open!

Here goes for Week 167.

The project that caught my eye in Week 166 was Margarita's set of four quilted pillows.  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.
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.
