Amy is having a McTavishing linky party and if you like the free motion quilting method then it's definately worth a look. The project she is working on is gorgeous and gives me much inspiration. She drew me in with the circle and here is what I am practicing.


This is one of many circle doodles


I had this small sun print / painted fabric in my stash so practiced on it- looks moonish


Then on to finish off this art quilt that was all quilted except the moon. I know a bold move since if I screwed it up I could ruin the whole thing but just went for it.

I like it ;-)

Have you ever tried McTavishing?



  1. Karen McTavish came to Baton Rouge maybe 7 years ago and taught classes. I was not interested in the long arm work because I never thought I would ever get one. But I did go to her lecture. Now I wish I had gone to the classes!

    You did a fabulous job on that moon! Makes me want to dance too!

  2. You did a wonderful job on your moon...don't you just love it when a plan comes together and makes a great statement.

  3. Wow! I am glad you went for it! It turned out great!

  4. Ok, that. is. fabulous! I like your McTavishing and I love your daring! Thanks for linking up!

  5. Such gorgeous quilting, Carol! I love what you did with the moon and the elegant dancing lady in the foreground! Beautiful!

  6. This is beautiful! Love it! Your quilting is gorgeous.
