    I've used McTavishing on quite a few quilts Its a wonderful way for a "filler" stitch. Only one thing...it uses a LOT of thread...but well worth the effort to practice it.

    OOPS...didn't read the entire forum...sorry to repeat
    How about a photo of some of yours SA. The more the merrier.

    It'll be a little bit before I get to tackle it - today is finish the design wall day (woohoo!) but I plan on trying it out in the wall hangings I'm working on. I am taking the pattern for Red Rooster Vintage Homestead and splitting it into 2 wall hangings, so that'll keep me on my toes all week. I keep a dry erase board, and have been dutifully doodling on it to improve my quilting - it helps tremendously, and I can wipe away as often as I like.

    I'll admit I'm an AQS fan; although I haven't been to Paducah (yet :twisted: ) I have been to the Des Moines show and it was fantastic - I can't imagine how much work went into organizing just that one show, let alone the three they put on every year.

    BTW, I love the fabric companies as well; it seems like each of them puts out loads of free quilt patterns! Here's a link to the one I'm working on if anyone wants it:

    Vicki, it's the first project I put up on my new design wall:
    http://www.quiltingboard.com/posts/list/21991.page

    I have the panel cut apart and separated into what I want in each wall hanging - one with the quilt theme will go in my sewing room, and the other more generic to go into the dining room. Right now all the cutting is done, and I'm working on getting the churn dash blocks out of the way. I'm toying with the idea of a wavy border rather than the piano keys to fit more with the frames around the panel pieces - depends on how brave I feel :D
