A glimpse of my world...
I am still working on the silk panels, and have nearly finished the fifth one. After that I will just have two left to do before I start putting the project together.
Working with silk is turning out to be a bit of a dream. There are no struggles with the weight and bulk of the work. The only slight problem I have had this week has been with the machine, but a bit of extra oil was all it needed. The unsightly tissue on the right was wrapped round the needlebar and presser bar overnight just in case any oil seeped down to the foot overnight and onto the work. Apart from inadvertently letting the backing come into contact with the treadle belt on one occasion, leaving a small brownish scuff, I have managed to keep the work nice and clean.
Shannon does it again! The project that caught my eye in Week 129 was her amazing mammals of Oklahoma quilt . If you haven't seen her blog post yet, nip over now and have a closer look.
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, Ireland and Brazil have taken part. The first participant from each new country will get a special mention the following week.
