Jingle BOM - Blocks 1 & 2 Completed

I thought that the redbirds would be difficult...but they were not at all. Still struggling to make really round berries...and am thinking about changing to cardboard as the "shape foundation"...and starching a lot before going final. But, there will be more berries for I'll get some practice! Ha!
This is a pretty block and I'm enjoying this quilt.
I've said it before...and I'm saying it again... Erin Russek's patterns are really easy to work up!
I so appreciate the gentle curves and the not-so-slender points for hand applique.
Here is the second block for the quilt. It is the first pieced block. The poinsettia fabric in the center will also be the last large border for the quilt. It is too large of a scale print to work well in any of the applique blocks, but I'm hoping to get to use it in all of the pieced blocks.
