Free Motion Mavericks - Week 190 - Fabric and Faceplate Twins

Morris Bluebell is such a beautiful fabric.  I have been looking forward to starting this latest cushion, and today I got cracking with the quilting.  I was half dreading it, thinking I might get lost, as I did with the snakeskin design, but this pattern was far easier to follow.  There are only two colours, as opposed to four or five in the snakeskin fabric.

When I was taking the photos I noticed how similar the fabric design was to the faceplate on my sewing machine.  I wondered why the swirling leaves and flowers all felt so familiar.

Here goes for Week 190

Many thanks to Yanicka
for linking up last week with her red, black and white 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.


  1. That is a great picture. I thought that the fabric was being reflected on your sewing machine!

    1. Thanks Andrée! I must admit it was a weird moment when I was struck by the similarity. Though not nearly so funny as you and the settee in Paris.
