Spring Floral and McTavish Monday

I made progress on two things this past week.  I had decided to do some McTavishing on the Spring Floral quilt, but after viewing the video, reading through the book, and viewing the DVD, I decided that would be too dense for what I had in mind.

So, I quilted up the Spring Floral freehand just to get in the movement of going this way and that.  The white squares got freehand flowers (I am just in a floral mood, see yesterday’s post), the floral parts got curved lines, and some touch and go feather shapes in the borders.  I think this will be a charity quilt for our club challenge later in the year.  I will make up another wall hanging with a floral theme and more space for using the McTavishing technique for background fill.

If you like those floral fabrics, I have some of each for sale in  my Etsy store, just $5 a yard plus shipping.


Then I really got busy with paper and pen.  I am not really happy with the progress so far, but will keep to pen and paper until I feel a little more confident of the technique.
