Free Motion Mavericks - Week 323 - Colour Matching

Dull light doesn't show these colours off to best advantage, but these fabrics have got my enthusiasm going for the next quilt top.  Poking around in the stash has been entertaining, finding pieces I had forgotten about, old favourites and others I have never used before.  The elephants are going to be the centrepiece of the next piecing project, combined with shades of brown, purple, mauve and turquoise.  After putting off making quilts for so long, I am now enjoying myself working with all the wonderful colours.  

I have calculated that I probably have enough fabric in the house to keep me going until I am 96, so I need to try and stay in the habit of keeping my projects ticking.  As usual, I am making things in batches, because one quilt top gives me an idea for the next, so I end up making four in a row.  Will it be five?  We shall see.

Here goes for Week 323 :-

Many thanks to Gail for linking up last time with her mystery 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.
