Making sandwiches again... but definitely not with spam. I have made two this week, to add to my pile of cradle quilts to be quilted. I rather like this one, with lots of pinks and florals, with a definite emphasis on roses. The colours look a bit sludgy in the photo because it was taken in electric light. Today is particularly dull and rainy, and now that it is going dark by 4.30 the urge to hibernate is getting stronger by the day. Although I am not feeling particularly creative on the quilting front at the moment, I have plenty to look forward to, with a trip to the annual 12 x 12 exhibition at Midsomer Quilting tomorrow. It promises to be interesting!
As for spam, am I the only one feeling inundated by spam comments at the moment? I have got into the habit of not looking at my comments box for days at a time because I know I will see the same old rubbish time and time again. I cleared out 22 spam comments today, most of which were in execrable English, but there was a fair smattering of offerings in Portuguese from Brazil. It is so tedious.
Enough moaning. It's linky time.
Here goes for week 208:-
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.
