Free Motion Friday Week 8: Superstar

Are you a Superstar?  Well of course you are!  This week's Free Motion Friday from the Free Motion Quilting Project is this beauty:


How did it go for you?  Join in the linky below and see what others were up to this week. Spread the encouragement and tips, please!  It's the only way we will learn.  If you need a reminder on the spirit of Free Motion Friday, please read the original post again.

Normally I'd post a new challenge for this upcoming week, but I think our time has come to a close. Our participation each week has reduced and I think it will only continue to do so with the holidays coming up.  I like to think it's because you guys are feeling confident on your own and are off practicing diligently on your own!  So, many thanks to those of you who participated and I wish you happy  FMQ success.

I think this was a good call, as time seems to be flying faster than usual. Sad to see this end, but thanks for getting us motivated. I've learned a lot and enjoyed meeting others. It will be good to continue finishing up projects I've got going already - maybe with a some free motion quilting!

Perhaps January will bring a renewed vigour to dive into these things again :o)

You have a house to move and a cat to keep a close eye on Cindy - will definitely miss this linky party but I will carry on with FMQ! THank you so much for getting me on the move - wouldn't have without you!

Sorry for being a lousy participant Cindy but I had no thread (or certainly none to spare for practicing) and I`ve just got some new reels. Is that your star? If so, it is A-MAZING!! Happy move Cindy! x

I'm sorry to see this end Cindy, as I was learning loads about the designs by seeing you all stitch them out!

I am planning to start a quilt-along on Wednesdays on the Free Motion Quilting Project starting in January, so you can always pick up the thread there at freemotionproject.com

Let's go quilt!

Thank you so much for hosting this, Cindy! I've had a great time attempting the designs and would surely have given up by now if not for you! Hope your move is going well and have a great weekend!

Cindy,
Thanks so much for the Free Motion Friday project. It has been fun to have the schedule and encouragement these past few weeks. Also, I have "met" some new friends and found some excellent blogs! Thanks and Happy Holidays (and moving).

I'm sad to see the linky end. Thank you for hosting this and giving me the push to finally start practicing!

Good luck with the move as well!

Sorry for being a terrible participant Cindy! I will catch up eventually! Thanks for the motivation to try out new designs! Hope your move is going well!

I'm sorry this is closing. It's been fun going round each week and seeing how we're all doing. Thank you for thinking of it and hosting. Before we did I thought fmq was practically impossible. Now I just think it needs LOTS of practice :)

Cindy, thank you so much for hosting such a fabulous linky party! I have thoroughly enjoyed every week and appreciated being push outside my comfort zone. I have loved meeting so many wonderful, supportive, new friends. I look forward to continue learning new skills.

I also look forward to seeing your new projects, as soon as you settle in to your new home!

Amazed at how many people you got FMQing. Great idea and lots of fun to see all the progress.

Although I haven't joined in I've really enjoyed seeing all the FMQ on the linked blogs - thanks for hosting it! Good luck with the move!

I missed doing this one because we've been the house of flu :( So sorry!
I've thoroughly loved doing fmf and thank you so much for hosting such a great project. I've learnt a lot and got the fmq bug, not sure I would have been brave enough to try on my own so thanks so much Cindy and everyone that joined in for the fun, laughs (!!) and encouragement :)
