Free Motion Mavericks - Week 209 - Sandwich Time

Big event!  I got round to making a quilt sandwich today.  I took advantage of a spare half hour and sandwiched one of the cradle quilt tops that I made recently.  Will I manage to quilt it before Christmas?  Perhaps not.  Life has been busy recently, with a friend visiting from Germany, who has been with us for ten days and is leaving today, and my brother and sister lined up to stay with us this weekend.  As you can imagine, the emphasis at the moment is on chatting and cooking.

Here goes for week 207:-

Many thanks again to Andrée for linking up last time with her paper pieced loon quilt.  If you haven't seen her blog post yet, nip over now and see more.

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.


  1. Hi Muv, enjoy your company and congrats on getting the sandwich done!

    1. Thanks Andrée. It has been great having visitors, and I have cooked them much more than sandwiches!
