Free Motion Mavericks - Week 101 - How to Quilt Berries

Here is the latest progress report on the Secret Project.  Unfortunately on this pinkish red shot cotton the quilting doesn't show up too well on a photo.  I rather enjoy combining these leaves with berries, so I chose this pattern for this week's video.

The sample turned out fairly well... 

... and filming was trouble-free.  A slight loss of focus towards the end, but that was the camera, not me.

Here goes for week 101... a little later than usual...

The project in Week 100 that caught my eye was Vireya's animals quilt - don't you just love that splash of pink!  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, Macau, Russia and Ireland have taken part.  The first participant from each new country will get a special mention the following week.

Linking up with Amanda Jean's blog Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish It Up Friday
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.

  1. I love the quilting on the red cotton! And I generally love quilting in variegated thread when it sometimes pops up and other times blends away.
