Work in progress........McTavishing

I love it when one project leads onto another - all totally unplanned of course.
This is what happened here.

I picked out some batiks and cut them into 11/2" strips to make a 1" postage stamp border.

Next, I sewed these around a piece of hand dyed (not by me) cotton.

This was my first attempt at McTavishing quilting.  I love how it turned out and will definitely be using this pattern again.


This is the back....
.....



Next I quilted a simple pattern over the postage stamps - I wanted them to look like mosiac tiles.



After adding some gold coloured binding, it's ready for the next stage....
I hope to get it finished today so I'll be back soon to show you the rest of it.
Enjoy your day.
Rhianon.
