Starter Block - Christmas Quilt

This logo can be found in my side bar at the moment. My first Around the World Quilting Bee Quilt has not yet arrived back to me but I decided to sign up for round two. This is a similar idea but with a Christmas theme. Ouch! I normally leave it until at least August present planning before I type that word on my block, never mind.Here is my opening starter block. Use my faithful log cabin although I did applique the shape in the middle.
Hopefully in this picture you might be able to see I that I used gold metallic thread and one of the built in stitches on my sewing machine. What do you think?
I hope to be even more adventurous with this quilt and I have already cut out hopefully the next two blocks. I have decided to make a few extra blocks for myself this time as well because I keep saying that I am going to make a table runner when I get a decent sized kitchen table. Well this year I will have that chance due to the kitchen re-fit!!
My first quilt is now moving on to the next stage but I have lost track as to where it is. I shall post it once it arrives.
Well, all of the admin work is now done for the courework and the deadline is tomorrow, so my weekend is going to be filled up with paper and adding up marks!
Plenty of tea and chocolate biscuits needed to keep me going I think.
Bye for now.
