Free Motion Mavericks - Week 213 - Roses Cradle Quilt

Pretty pink doesn't look too marvellous when photographed in poor daylight...

… but on close inspection the theme is pretty obvious.  Roses!  As many as possible, plus a few other flowers, and some non-floral fabrics to prevent the overall effect from becoming too riotous.

Even the binding has roses...

… and there are more on the back.

Huge thanks to Andrée in Canada for hosting the linky for her first time last week!  We are alternating weeks, so week 214 will be at her blog Quilting and Learning - what a combo.

Here goes for week 213:-

Many thanks to Margarita for linking up with her beautiful Christmas wreath 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 and Andree! Thank you for hosting the Free Motion Mavericks. I look forward to finding more FMQ inspiration. ~smile~ Roseanne

  2. I like your Pink. Can't have too many roses. That Christmas wreath is gorgeous! Off to see last week's Free Motion Mavericks.

  3. Hi Muv, those are really cute rose fabrics. The quilt is lovely.
