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!
