March Buck a Block...Sneak Preview ... and a Little Advice If You Please

On March 1st we will be starting our next Buck A Block Program! This one uses Thangles and a gorgeous Debbie Mumm Christmas Collection of fabric in country red, green and beige. Here is a sneak peak at the center medallion:

This time around you can do just the pieced blocks or you can choose to do the applique centre as well! The project doesn't start until March 1st and sign ups are in the store only while quantities last (although we made dozens!). I'll post another blog entry to remind you on March 1st.

In the meantime I need a little advice...on finishing the applique. While the details are hard to see in the picture...I used a buttonhole stitch around all the pieces and then couched some fluffy white yarn around Santa's cuff's and coat. I can't decide what to do with the wreath ... I'm thinking possibly a little thread painting and then decorating it with a few red beads... what do you think?

What a great center medallion! What if you were to add some ribbons around that wreath before adding the beads?

I think it looks good the way it is. It might look overdone if you put on the beads and other things. This looks nice and country.

Yes, a little thread painting and some small red beads would look nice. Another nice touch would be a small red bow. Can't wait for the 1rst! Claire
