Inspired by her quilts and quilting, I drew up this feathery thingy doodad to experiment with. Patsy also posted a few videos on YouTube demonstrating a really easy trapunto technique. It's hard to see the trapunto here, but scroll down and you'll see a few pictures of what I did.
In the above picture and below I closed up on my attempt at McTavishing. I don't know what Karen McTavish would say about this, lol*, she might not even appreciate me attatching her name to my so called "technique", but hey, it's my first shot!!! Lol* I'm using invisible monofiliment thread for the McTavishing and I also used it some in the trapunto around the feather applique.
More of my "McTavishing". Lol*
Here's a little closeup of the trapunto'ed feather...I used more invisible thread and my new Sulky variegated in pink and yellow...
Here's a better view of the feather before I started quilting. This is just the trapunto'ed section. I can see that this is going to take a LOT of practice, but this was fun!
