Free Motion Mavericks - Week 223 - A Batch of Four

Camera batteries have a habit of running out at the most inconvenient times, so the mobile phone had to make do this evening.  I finished the binding on the latest quilt at about midnight last night because I knew I was going to be out for most of the day today, and I wanted photos for tonight's blog post.  So here it is, laid out with the previous three, all looking very floral, and one considerably pinker than the others. 

The good news is that having concentrated on girly items recently, my hunch has paid off.  A brand new great niece arrived on the 24th March, so the Little Miss Marple cardigan is reserved for her, because her mum, my niece is a great lover of pink.  She already has two little boys, so she is totally pinking out with the arrival of her baby girl.  If she wants a quilt, I shall rummage through my stack and find her the pinkest one of them all.

Here goes for week 223:-

Many thanks to Margarita for showing her beautiful trapunto quilting on the last linky.  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, Congrats on your new great niece. I'm glad that your gorgeous cardigan will get a new home. It's great that your niece had a girl - 2 boys is enough! I'll link up this weekend. All the best,
