I've been busy on this BOM. The little quilting group I belong to is making this BOM. There are 14 of us doing this quilt. I am the only one doing machine applique, but that's all right. I was so far behind that I made it a goal to just work on this quilt alone. No dividing my time between projects. This way I can keep my machine set up with the proper thread, tension and needle. Once the prep work is done, and there is a lot of prep work, the stitching is speedy. If you are keeping count, this make block #7.
You can see the faint lines I've drawn for the embroidery. I won't be doing any of the embroidery or embellishment until after it is quilted. All the gingerbread men will need eyes and buttons and the pine boughs for most of the blocks will need to be stitched. There are other places here and there that I will be stitching too.
