2 Quilts of Christmas: Merry Merry

This lovely quilt pattern came from a 2005 Block & Pattern a Day Calendar.  The design is by Debbie Kratovil.  The gold fabric has a shiny texture.  It's a scrap from a holiday blouse I made for my sister-in-law.  This wall hanging is one of my favorite Christmas quilts! 
This is where I really figured out the tricks to machine applique using a zig zag stitch.  It's not as hard as I had imagined.  Leave the needle down when you turn to adjust your direction:  on an Outside curve the needle needs to be Outside, on an Inside curve the needle needs to be Inside.  Wow, did that make applique look so much more professional!
