I Wish You A Merry Quilt Along Block Seven Plus Prizes

And now for block 7.

This block is designed by Sandy Maxfield of Sandy Star Designs.

Fabric selection for this block.

I chose bright greens and reds for this block.

Here is my version of the block

Quilting the block

I started with stitch in the ditch along all the seams.

Then with the leave, started a 1/4 inch along one edge and just went around in circle until I hit the center.

Applique stitch the little yellow circle. And you have the final product.
