Latest Christmas Quilt Block

I am secretly very pleased with this block. I have always loved applique and I was delighted to find out that this technique could also be used along with paper pieceing and other forms of quilt block creating. I did produce another bauble block in May but I wanted to have another go with a different approach.
I decided to use darkr coloured fabric, gold thread, ribbon, a few sequins and this time some holly with a button berry.
The background is a white cotton because that was the background colour theme of the previous blocks.
I really enjoyed making this block and I would like to try a much larger bauble with plenty of hand stitching, but it will depend on what comes through the post box as to whether it would work.
Hopefully all of our quilts (there is about 17 of us I think taking part in this Quilting bee) will be completed before Christmas so that we can make them up and have them on display! So please bear with me for having this topic on my blog in July!
