Free Motion Mavericks - Week 315 - Creative Block


Under stress I knit.  It absorbs all the frustration of the past few months.  Much as I would like to be organised and do some serious sewing again, for the moment my brain is total stew.  I have got a relaxing project lined up, making lavender bags to hang in wardrobes, so I am sure that will stir up a little creativity from the murky depths.  So, nothing to show you this week, apart from just a tiny glimpse of a little coat in the making.

Here goes for Week 315:-

Many thanks to Sew Yummy for linking up last time with her nine patch 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 five days, from midnight to midnight GMT for the long weekend, Friday to Tuesday.

So far quilters from the USA, England, Wales, Australia, Canada, Germany, Holland, New Zealand, France, Macau, Russia, Ireland, Brazil and Sweden have taken part.  The 
first participant from each new country will get a special mention the following week.


  1. I'm so honoured to be featured this week! Alas no free motion quilting has been happening this week... I need to layer some quilts but work has been keeping me out of the sewing room!

    1. Delighted to feature your quilt, Yvonne. I just so happen to have a length of beige(ish) cotton that I have been neglecting...

  2. I can smell the scent of that lavender. Hope you get back to stitching soon.
