    I believe on something small it would be more stiff because of not so much weight but the larger the quilt, I don't see where it would be so stiff. Couldn't be any different than the stippling or meandering.IMHO.

    Mom-6, I hear you!! I said the same thing to my kids when my grandkids were born...they spit up so much it made sense they should be on their tummys but I guess times change and thank goodness for the baby monitors!!!

    Beautiful quilting, I agree the thread and batting makes the difference!

    I bought a sandwich type thing for my last child (18yrs ago) that kept him on his side. I thought that was a great idea if he threw up he was on his side so it rolled out & onto the sheets. Seems everyday something changes, like the deal with eggs don't eat to many bad for cholesterol then it wasn't so bad. These days you just never know.

    Babies are supposed to be in a sleep sack now with no covers or soft things that can cause suffocation. Makes you wonder how we all survived doesn't it? They also say that all babies should sleep only on their backs. I always placed mine on their tummy due to a personal tragedy in our family. My Grandmother had a difficult birth and could hear the baby choking on his back and was too weak to get up or call out and the baby died. Just goes to show you what the "experts" know.

    I do wonder today, both my kids slept on stomach and if they spit up they wouldn't choke on it. Just like we have so many bratty kids today because parents have been told a swat on the butt when they will not listen is going to ruin them for life. Educated idiots some of these people. And as the world is such a mess, I do feel many of the old ways were better.

    I just want everyone to know I am exercising admirable restraint! About McTavishing, the topic of this thread, of course.

    I've done some really large-scale Mctavishing on bed quilts and LOVE the way it looks. The great thing about Mctavishing is that you can make it ANY size you want and it still looks fantastic and is fun to stitch too.

    McTavishing is a style of FMQ named for Karen McTavish. Here's a link to her site:

    I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.
