Christmas quilt progress

I've started combining blocks in my Christmas quilt, although there are still some blocks I want to make such as the Santa block from last  year's 12 Days of Christmas Sampler QAL sponsored by Sew Sweetness.  I've pieced a basket that I'll embellish with candy canes; I still don't have my house, though.  Here's a combination I like:
I like the stack of string-pieced trees next to the other blocks.  I embellished the wreath with holly; just after I finished appliqueing it down, I noticed it was in the wrong corner!  oh well, it's done now...

Sunbonnet Sue trimming the tree...
She looks like a calendar girl!  It wasn't done on purpose, but it's a cute way to display those two 12-1/2" blocks.  The red horizontal strip has Christmas lights on it, very appropriate for the tree!  And did you notice the single red block?  ;o)  I'm working on other combinations that I'll share later.

That's it for now, have a great Saturday... sew forth and sew on!
