The quilt of the Week

I pinned yet another quilt on the grace frame today. My "Baltimore Blues" applique quilt. Lastnight I was in chat talking about how to quilt it and a couple of friends suggested that I try the "McTavish" Quilting style. This style of quilting is named after it's developer Karen McTavish.

I did some internet research, talked to a few longarm quilters and gave it a try. So, here is my attempt of her style of quilting. It may not be perfect, but I like how it looks and it's only on the boarder so far. Hopefully by the time I hit the blocks it may look better.

Nice job! I did the first BOM from these Baltimore Blues. Was one of my first attempts at applique. I didn't do any more because it is SO much work and I want to make faster progress but it was fun to try. Yours looks FABULOUS! Great job!
