How time flies when you're busy! Which is another way of saying that I have done zero sewing, and won't get much done in the next ten days or so. My daughter is due to come home for a visit, and we should be making a visit together to my brother in Surrey. Finally we are catching up with friends and relatives that we haven't seen for ages, and it is an absolute delight.
Now that things are moving again on the family front, it looks as though I have a big creative project in the offing, so I can think about which free motion quilting designs to use again. All my favourite designs are based on plants, and this poppy head has to make a reappearance. I am thinking this project will be a good opportunity to devise a pomegranate design, which will have to be on a larger scale than the poppy head. A quick internet search has shown me that a pomegranate tree has a very simple shaped leaf, which should make life easier!
Here goes for Week 331 :-
Many thanks to Rebecca Grace for linking up last time showing a top made by a 90 year old lady and which was quilted for charity. I want to be like that when I'm 90! 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.
