November finish for Q4 FAL 2016

A beautiful fall day at the lake.

A bevy of totes ~ it was tricky finding something to hang them on :)

This is a vintage bureau scarf, hand embroidered linen, circa 1950's
I marked and quilted the Sue Nickels trapunto heart wreaths in the center,
used Cindy Needham background stencils for the orange peel and fans,
and FMQ unmarked Sue Heinz inspired hearts in the corners
and along sides, and FMQ for the dense quilting and feather borders.
