Free Motion Mavericks - Week 169 - Just Piecing

Into the groove of sewing again (at last) after a winter knitting sabbatical, and now I have a couple of cradle quilt tops to show for my efforts.  I have used this fabric before, with shades of subdued blue and also with a red border.  This time I have concentrated on the green teapots and used greens to build up the colour range.  I also have the perfect backing fabric, so these should be fun-packed little quilts.  It is nearly two months since I have been near my treadle, and I am looking forward to getting going again.

Here goes for Week 169.

The project in week 168 that caught my eye was Bernie's scattered squares 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.
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.
