    Seriously, the person who was gifted the quilt didn't like the border? Now that's just silly. Glad she kept it. Thanks for sharing.

    I agree whole heartedly. no wonder she kept it.
    also agree !- all her work is beautiful , but i was really admiring that border. I didn't even see the remark above the picture until I read responses further down and then I thought WHAT!!!!

    I love the double wedding ring quilt. I don't understand why they
    would want the border taken off. That sets it off. I would keep
    it to, too much work not to.

    For sure, someone gives back a quilt I made, I'm keeping it ... the border was just beautiful and took lots of work. The receiver missed out on an heirloom by McTavish! Priceless gift.

Her mom told her she could make a living doing LA quilting, and Karen did, but only after a long learning curve and her own inventivness! And now...the rest is history. So here are some pictures. I asked her if I could post them, and she gave me permission.


    Peggy, Thank you so much for sharing your day with Karen McTavish and her ultra, wonderful and creative quilts. This was so awsome. :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

    Someone was crazy to suggest that the border should be taken off. I am glad she kept it.

    This is so breath taking. It sets a new goal for us to strive for. They are so great but I bet close up was real special. I would of kept that DWR and Not taken off the border either.

    Beautiful work, I can only hope to be so talented one day. Someone actually returned that beautiful quilt to her to have the border taken off? What a nut job.
