Free Motion Mavericks - Week 73 - Tea Time

Every finish calls for a quick celebration of some sort - in this case a mug of tea.  The large mug has tea in it, and the tea pot is under the cosy.  At the moment I am having a bit of a sort out in the sewing room, and have finally got round to making cosies from a panel that I quilted with a hawthorn design a couple of years ago.  The panel was large enough to make two cosies.  As soon as I have put on the binding around the bottom of the second one, this one will have a twin.

Here goes for week 73...

The project in Week 72 that really caught my eye was Karen's intense quilting on  a top made in patterned fabrics by her friend.  If you haven't seen her blog post yet, nip over now and see more photos.

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 Sarah's blog Confessions of a Fabric Addict for Whoop Whoop Friday
and Amanda Jean's blog Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish It Up Friday.


  1. It's a beauty. Karen is a master at FMQ. Love your tea cosy.

  2. It is so charming. Modern yet old world charm. . . .
