Overview


Quilters learn how to recreate the motion and texture of the author's popular namesake stitch as they follow along with this fully illustrated handbook and DVD. Inspired by the art nouveau movement's Alfonse Mucha, this freehand, background filler quilting design has electrified the quilting community. Dubbed "McTavishing," after its creator, it has become the most popular new design concept in quilting today. As shown in the 25 illustrated projects, McTavishing may be added to any quilt or garment, from wholecloth to contemporary art quilts, and done by hand, domestic machine, or longarm technique. The book's seven how-to chapters demonstrate the uses of the McTavishing stitch—as an addition to an open quilt block, in a border, to highlight complex applique, custom tailor a favorite garment, or as part of a larger overall design—while the accompanying DVD provides lessons from the author. Accompanied by interviews with accomplished hand and domestic machine quilters, this guide offers readers an unparalleled view of the exciting new quilting process.
