I Wish You a Merry Quilt-a-long Block 2

Today I'm going to inspire you with my latest block for the I Wish You a Merry Quilt-a-long that's going on over Facebook.  TWO new blocks come out TOMORROW and I can't wait, but for today, here's my block number two.

I rearranged the trees to focus on the snowflake/explosion in the background fabric.  I couldn't stand the thought of cutting it up.  I also decided to applique instead of paper piece.  Here is the block before blanket stitching.

 And here it is after blanket stitching.  I think it helps define the trees with the gold on them.

And my first two blocks together!  I am loving this and can't WAIT until tomorrow!

I hope you get to quilt today!
