    Aww thanks I've tried the bananas (but not yet headbands), but I get lost and it is difficult to fill the space, especially around the snowflake. I'm taking a class with her at the Des Moines quilt show, so it will be interesting to see if she covers them (it isn't the banana class though).

    I actually have the same problem with McTavishing- my doodling is getting better, but I often get lost in the space, so I'm not quite ready to put it to thread. I know to use C's to get out of tight spaces, but I still feel like I would end up with too much thread build up.

    Yes- I have visited Leah Day's site. This is actually her Winter Wonderland pattern. I worship her quilting. She has been a huge inspiration for me in my journey this year.

    I purchased the pattern from Day Style Designs (not affiliated). It is called "Winter Wonderland", and outlines the entire technique, as such I don't really feel comfortable sharing it specifically, since it isn't my method, so much as Leah Day's method.

    In general terms- it reminded me a lot of in the hoop applique on an embroidery machine. You sew the design onto the batting/felt and then cut away, rather than cut away and then sew.
