Free Motion Mavericks - Week 53 - Link Up for the July Give Away

This month, because it is July, it is time to celebrate a few birthdays (mine, my husband's, a brand new great nephew), and a couple I missed in June (the blog's third, the linky's first). Everyone who links up during July will be entered into the give away.  The more times you link up, the more entries you will get.

What are the rules?  Just link up, following the usual rules for the linky.  There is just one thing I have to mention - any links that don't have anything to do with free motion quilting don't qualify.

The prize?  It is a choice of either one of the two landscape quilts that I have been making over the past few weeks...

... so if the winner loves this one, it's theirs!

Suggestions for a title for this landscape would be most welcome.

The other quilt made from the same piece of quilting will be ready to show next week.  All I have left to do is to stitch some birds in the sky.

Here goes for week 53...

Many thanks to Quilt Musings, Judy, Laura, Gwyned, Carol, Angie and Andree for linking last week to show their free motion quilting projects.

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 and/or grab the linky button for your blog's sidebar.
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 and Macau have taken part.  The first participant from each new country will get a special mention the following week.

Linking up with Kelly's blog My Quilt Infatuation for Needle and Thread Thursday
and Sarah's blog Confessions of a Fabric Addict for Whoop Whoop Friday
and Nina Marie's blog Creations... Quilts, Art... Whatever for Off The Wall Friday
and Amanda Jean's blog Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish It Up Friday.


  1. I wish I had something to show, but I am away from my sewing machine for a while. I love your thread play landscape. It has turned out beautifully!

    1. Thank you! I'm just so glad I have finally got it finished. I hope you don't miss your sewing machine too much.

  2. Your landscape quilt is beautiful! Thanks for hosting the link up.

  3. What a bit of thread can do! Love your "In the Distance" landscape. I've enjoyed watching this come to life. Thank you for all the process posts, and such a great giveaway!

  4. Oh wow! I so wish I had something to link up this week! These are gorgeous and I cannot believe you are giving one away! Someone is gonna be VERY happy! Have a great week.

    1. Thanks Katy! Still two more link ups to go after this one...

  5. Your landscape turned out beautiful. There was a song last year titles 'Calm before the storm.' I must think of that song when I sea your landscape.

  6. How about "over the hills and far away"? It's a beautiful quiltl
