I finished my McTavishing sampler and shot another video. Yes, another video. On McTavishing. Is that overkill?
I did this McTavishing a bit different by making it smaller. I started off with the big swooshy lines at the same scale I had been doing, but then filled in with "micro-mctavishing".
Now I can add the sampler to my pile of "needs to be bound" projects. It will be part of my FMQ classes from now on.
All the quilting done in my favorite Glide thread.

This is a handout I created for my classes on free motion quilting. It's laminated and the back side is mostly blank so you can doodle designs on it with a dry-erase marker. It's a list of tips and ideas for FMQ that is easy to keep right at your machine. It's still a work in progress so I'd appreciate some feedback from those who get it.
If you've been wondering if we'll ever get to Spring, you'll enjoy our new design. I wanted to do something that is approachable for both beginners and those that are more advanced. So let's explore ways to make flowers that work well as a filler and also as an all-over design.
I've got a few other ideas and possible giveaways to coordinate with the other designs that I mentioned last week. So a little extra time to plan that will be needed.
So next week I'll post a tutorial on the design and some examples. Then you'll have a week to link up, if you wish, with drawings or your own quilted versions.
I hope you've had a chance to do some McTavishing this week and are ready to link up your post featuring your work on this great design. Feel free to post a drawing if you are new to this design: drawing the design really helps! Post a sample piece or even a finished work. Treat last week as a base line and see if you've improved!
If this is your first McTavishing Monday, you can find the first of this series at Week One.
