I'm working on a family heirloom for a friend. Her Great-Grandmother made the top back in the 30's or 40's. It's been in a trunk for years and has some damage and fading. She said that my panoramic quilting is exactly what she wanted to keep this top together so I'm putting a LOT of extra love in my stitches while I quilt. I'll post pictures when I'm through............

Hi Deb!  Thanks for all the compliments!  My 'daddy' bags are a great hit with everyone even more so with women!  I think because their different and really play to the younger generation.  I just love making them. 

 

You asked about McTavishing.  OMG Karen McTavish is the greatest thing that ever hit quilting! lol.  I think she's wonderful.  I even got to meet her this year AND take her class.  She's a crazy dread locked hair tattoed harley ridin' traditional quilter!  Mctavishing is her technique of filler quilting and it's just beautiful.  It gives so much texture to a quilt.  I did a practice piece for the event coordinator at our Civic Center (who asked me to direct a quilt show this year! woohoo!!) and he was just amazed that I took this pillow case he gave me with hand prints and turned it into something so beautiful.  It was all McTavished!  She's got a website, she's on Facebook and she's got several books out.  I just received her newest one which came out a couple weeks ago.  You should check her out!
