Free Motion Mavericks - Week 243 - The Path

Only a little bit of progress, but somehow the picture is becoming more real to me.  I have sketched in a section of path, which is leading into the scene, and the woods on the hill in the distance.  Because the scene is so green, I have been wondering whether I have enough shades to prevent the whole thing turning into a big indecipherable splodge.  I shall have to add extra tones in blending colours at a later stage to try and give depth and distinguish one green from another.  I foresee broken needles.

Here goes for week 243:-

Many thanks to Nancy for linking up last time with her beautiful table centres.  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, I can see where a lot of different greens could become difficult to work with. Good luck!
