I quilted a large feather and then began to McTavish all around it. There are 3 basic types of line styles with McTavishing: curve to a point (bounce), curve to a backtrack, and the "C" filler.
Be consistent within a set of curve ends as to whether you are bouncing or backtracking.
I had fun trying to increase the speed of my quilting as I McTavished. I am normally a pretty slow quilter, but I also have a ton of projects that I want to get DONE!
Not too shabby. I chose a peach thread on white fabric so that you could still see it, but the reduced amount of contrast might hide some of my mistakes.
No doubt about it, when quilting on a sewing machine, our eyes are maybe 10-12 inches from our stitching and that can make us crazy, worrying about every little backtrack, bobble, and bump!
Now for some fun! I really sped up my quilting for this video! Wheeeeee!
It's the weekend and time for me to get some serious quilting time! So glad that my hubby's out-of-town work project is done. I missed the poor guy.
Hope you get to quilting too!
