Free Motion Mavericks - Week 195 - Blue Hummingbird

So beautiful!  When I saw this curtain fabric on the reduced shelf I had to buy a metre so I could make cushions.  I shall make at least one for our revamped front room.  Blue doesn't feature at all in the new colour scheme, so I wasn't sure whether this fabric would look right, but now that we are gradually putting things back in there somehow it works.

Cooler weather is forecast for next week, so I might even get some quilting done.  

Here goes for week 194:-

Many thanks to Andrée for linking up last week with her gorgeous batik lap quilt.  If you haven't seem her blog post yet, nip over now and see more:-

It's still hot, so whether you are overheating in the northern hemisphere or shivering in the south, if you have no free motion quilting to show, feel free to link up and show any project you like.  Here are the usual rules, but feel free to ignore them.

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. Lovely fabric! It would go great in my family room (almost all blue in there). Can't wait to see the quilting you use with it.

    1. My brother's and sister in law's living room is mainly blue too. It is such a restful colour.

      The birds and orchids are great fun to quilt, so perhaps I might make fairly quick work of this one.
