Heart and Feather Whole Cloth Workshop with Leah Day

I'm working on the Leah Day WholeCloth Hearts and Feather Quilt.
This is my first time doing trapunto and oops ~ see the tiny hole ~ I can, even in the bad picture . What to do? I patched it with some Soft Fuse and now I have difficulty finding where I patched it.

Here's the back showing the trapunto polyester batting.
I have the four hearts in each corner to cut out.




I followed Leah's directions and pin based the quilt sandwich
with the wool batting between the layers.
Then I basted the sandwich with the wash away thread.
It's really puffy in person.
Can't wait to quilt the top.

Tote for me and present from Debbie

New tote for my embroidery supplies, This n That pattern. 
I love the beautiful sealife penny rug Debbie made for me for our Christmas gathering at Terry's house last month. Mary made Debbie a beautiful machine embroidered table runner, Gail made Mary a lovely embroidered Christmas pillow and I made Terry a This n That tote like the one I made for myself and daughter Amanda. 

Christmas totes and briefcase


Amanda's tote, a This n That pattern.
