    ok Lin - Here's what I did the other day. I know it's not "real" McTavishing, but that's ok.... I like to do original stuff better anyhow. ;)

    I used a low-loft poly batt, and this thing is FLAT. The green and red rectangles are about 2" across, if that helps you see it in perspective.

    I couldn't get a nice smooth continuous line, but it was my first attempt. I hope to improve!

    Oh my word cathe!!!! That is most definitely the "real" thing! You did an amazing job. Truly. I think your lines are very smooth and blend into one another just right! I LOVE IT, LOVE IT!!! If I sound excited for you, I AM. And very proud. I think you've got the idea just fine and will only go on to make it even more personal as you continue to use the technique. Thank you so much for sharing that with all of us.

    That was really a tiny little space to put all that thread huh? I would never have attempted something that small to start. You are brave, and very talented! :D :D

    By flat, do you mean it's draping ok? Mine was pretty flat too, and it still draped nicely considering the thread density! I'm so happy for you.

    Thank you!

    I mean that it's flat - with little to no thickness, almost as if that area was without batting entirely. But I guess that is what stippling is supposed to do... flatten down an area, usually allowing another area to stand in relief.

    It probably drapes ok - It will be easier to tell if I do a larger piece. I haven't washed it since quilting, either, and that might make a difference.
