    Lone Star tablecloth -- quilted by Dee

    This has been a challenge and a blast to quilt this one! It's 75 x 77" and is the first time I've done the McTavishing (the fine busy quilting around the feathers). I used Hobbs 80/20, Superior's Lava thread for the top and Sew Fine for the bobbin.

    I'm hoping the customer will like it!!!Name:  Lone Star Quilt.JPG

    Your work is just beautiful. Thank you so much for sharing these pictures. I've been studying them for the last 20 minutes and trying to learn from your examples...it is very helpful to see the patterns and try to follow the design in the making.

    Thank you EVERYONE! Sneed -- if you look at the center of the motif -- that's a stencil I got for less than $5.00. I use rules and go around and around in it --- NO tie-offs!!!! The McTavishing is fun -- but scary at first -- you can't hardly screw up, but if you do it's a PAIN to take out!

    Would you believe the quilt was done for a woman that just retired from her quilt shop ---- the shop is called "Desert Rose"!!!!

    This is lovely! The background filler turned out really nice! Love your feathers. I've been working on feathers all afternoon. Thinking I might try your method of no backtracking. Thanks for sharing!
