Free Motion Mavericks link up

Welcome to Free Motion Mavericks (week 230).

I've only written one post since the last time I hosted Free Motion Mavericks - I've been really busy at work and sick with some kind of bug. Nothing serious but I feel like I've been hit with a ton of bricks! So this is going to be a very short post.

Here is a mini that I made three years ago when I was learning to write again. I followed a video by Joanne Sharpe, read her books and practiced writing my letters for a while.
Be Here Now - a reminder 
This mini is on the wall behind my sewing machine. It's important to be in the present and focus, especially when I FMQ.

Free Motion Mavericks
There were seven great link-ups two weeks ago. Thanks everyone who linked up and visited! It's  always lovely to have virtual visitors. Afton Warrick of Quilting Mod finished her tasty Perfect Treats quilt. The FMQ of those great ice cream treats was done by Tisha Cavanaugh of Quilt Icing. If you haven't seen it, it's well worth the click!

  1. Love your quilt! I used to free motion all the time on my Elna but find it a bit scary on the Gammill. Somehow, when comes time to quilt now-I just like to pantograph and 'git her done'!

  2. Hope you feel better soon; there's a nasty virus going around which I had, lasted forever, still a residual congestion feeling. Love that mini.

  3. Another fun free motion piece!

  4. Hope work has slowed down some and that you are feeling better. Very fun quilting.

  5. Hello Andrée, Get well soon! Sometimes things just linger...
    Great little quilted motivator. I could do with one of those.
    Love, Muv

  6. Great advice, being present now. :) I listen to something in the background to stop my mind wandering completely when I FMQ.


Hi! I would love to hear from you and I will try to answer you. Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a message. :-)
