The dvd was great. I thought it would be crappy for my 24.95 but I got 90 minutes of her quilting. The sound is on the loud side but the video is great. I loved that she made her quilting the star of the show and not herself as most quilting shows and dvds do.
Although she uses a longarm machine, you can use your home machine as well for any of her techniques. She follows the book, but having a visual to see how she does her quilting is awesome. She is a very relaxing teacher and not stuffy or snobby. She let the camera get all the angles of her quilting and it was great to see her enjoying doing this dvd. I personally don't care for "McTavishing" but I loved the freemotion Victorian Feathers and just watching her style of quilting. It was also nice to see how a longarm machine works and not an overpriced Bernina machine as most top quilters say you must have to do quilting.
The book is the same as any other quilting book. The dvd rocks. Buy it just for that and you won't regret it. Most quilting dvds run around 40 dollars and Karen was a genius for addding it with her book. I hope other quilters follow her path.
I have to apologize and say that "McTavishing" is stunning. I just did a quilt using "McTavishing".Read more ›
I have acquired a couple of shelves of quilting books on all subjects, but this is one of the few that I've reread and put to use almost immediately. I just bought the book in October and already I've McTavished three quilts. Finally, I've finished some of those UFOs.
If you want a different, interesting look for your quilts, this book might change your life, too. The DVD is a wonderful companion, and I was surprised by the low Amazon price on this set. NO, this isn't a "paid commercial." <G>
Worth the money.

A method of quilting that even the home quilter can adapt to small or large projects. No marking the quilt or chalk--just curvy lines.Published on September 22, 2013 by Linn Acree
