Free Motion Mavericks - Week 204 - And Another Hen

Almost finished... the hens quilt is quilted and bound, but still needs a little work on it.  There is a little fullness in the background, which shows up shadows when the quilt is seen from across a room.  Rather than leave it and be irked by it, I have decided to do hand stitching to hold the layers together.  So for the moment, here is a preview.  I quite like this particular hen.  She is calm and composed, whereas one of the other hens is an absolute brute.

All shall be revealed next week.

Here goes for week 204:-

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.  To keep the original emphasis, however, preference will be given to free motion quilting when featuring projects from the previous week.

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.
