Free Motion Mavericks - Week 233 - Resting

Once in a while you need a rest.

I came home on Tuesday at midnight from France, having been away from the previous Thursday.  It has been an unforgettable trip, walking for three days with a group on pilgrimage, all the way from Paris to Chartres.  As you can imagine, I needed a bit of a rest when I came home.  Unfortunately, a sore throat has made its appearance, so for the past two days I have been feeling rubbishy.  As a result, the linky is a day late and I have no sewing to show.  To make up for the lateness, the linky will stay open until Tuesday, and I am looking forward to seeing your projects.

Here goes for Week 233:-

This time I am torn between two projects, so rather than feature just one, I shall feature both!

Many thanks to Vasudha for linking up last time with her modern circles quilt.  If you haven't seen her blog post yet, nip over now and see more.

And also many thanks to Margarita for linking up with her feathers quilt.  Her blog post is here.

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.
