Sewn on the HQ Sweet Sixteen, Sketchbook, Joannes Quilt Along,

This post is a little quicker than last time

I have been busy with my quilt and have completed another block

Well almost.  As I have been having a problem with tension..I am waiting till
I finish the main quilting ...and will then go back with different colours to go in the block design.

I have also been doing some sketching

the above design was show by a lovely teacher...Jeanie Harrison ..on Facebook
I really like it.

This was practicing some of Jamie Wallen's designs..
I was so lucky to attend his workshop in Perth Western Australia last year...
It was wonderful!

I hope to do a lot more practice.

and this is trying to get my head around McTavishing.

Now - back to my quilting.

I like your sketching. I love how we all have our own distinct McTavishing. Since everyone loves it, it is unique in that a lot of us have tried it & discovered we do it differently from everyone else. When I first discovered I couldn't get Karen's exact style, it was one of those things I was really glad to accept my own McPatti-ing!

Hi Joan, LOVE your quilting.
I did that same sew along with Barbara , but mine is not as beautifully quilted lik yours..
Now I'm having fun with baby things, but I really need to get my mojo and passion back.
Hope your keeping well and warn down south.
