I decided to use some of my Christmas fabrics for this block. I also had to look through my stripes to find some "candy cane" fabric as well. I love my tiny bias tape maker for the 1/4 inch handles. I find that starching the bias strip first helps to thread it through the opening to get it started. This is one of the places that I use steam when pressing!
Once again, the appliques were prepared using water soluble stabilizer and a washable glue stick. Machine appliqued with monofilament thread and machine embroidered.
