Free Motion Mavericks - Week 191 - Following the Lines

You can't really tell from the photo, but despite the heat, I have done a fair amount of quilting this week.  Treadling can be hot work in the summer, and suddenly we are in the midst of a scorcher.

A quick look at the back shows where I have been.  The curves and symmetry of this pattern are so beautiful.  This is going to be a square cushion.  There is enough fabric left over to make an oblong cushion afterwards.  It could be slow work.  This heat is set to last for while.

Here goes for Week 191

Many thanks to Andrée
for linking up last week with her 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.
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. Thanks so much Muv! The FMQ on that fabric is gorgeous from the back. We are getting a scorcher here also - just in time for Canada Day. Another reason to estivate for a while :-)
